Around the Clock Longevity Challenge
Most around the clock challenges see how quickly you can go around -  this one focuses on how far and many times you can get around the board.


3 consecutive misses and you're out -

First rotation:  Any single advances one number, double 2 numbers, or triple 3 numbers -
If you miss you go backwards one number -

Second rotation: You must hit the double of the number you are on first before advancing then any segment works with same rules as above -
Again if you miss you go back one number

Example_ 1 = double 1 required which would advance you to 3 - single three would take you to 4 triple 3 to 6 etc
if you missed double 1 you would go back to single bull -

Third rotation:  You must hit a triple of the number you are on prior to advancing - if on bull any combination of three marks is sufficient to advance
If you miss you go back one number

Fourth rotation: You must hit a triple and a single to start advancing -
Example_2 - must hit triple 2 and single 2 and would be then on 6 -

Etc

Once you miss three consecutive turns you are finished -


How many times around can you make it?

Sounds quite a challenge but I'm a little confused with the rules, so on second rotation you have to hit a double to advance, so what is the point of hitting another segment or are you saying if you hit another segment it does not count as a miss but you can still only advance once the double is hit?

If you were on double one and hit it first dart you would be on three -
then any 3 works to advance - single three to four --- double 3 to five  -- triple 3 to 6

If you hit double on your last dart you would be on double 3 required to start your next throw -

That way you're not always shooting at even or odds - plus it helps you focus on hitting target first dart as you are rewarded by being able to advance faster/easier using your second and third darts -

Last practice session ended up busting out at double 9 somewhat worse than my normal

You would be on triple 1
I never play requiring you have to hit the bull on any round as it takes away advantage of hitting triples on 19's and 20's -
