Re: Re writing the rules a bit

I always thought

Re: Re writing the rules a bit

Re writing the rules a bit

When I first start playing, reading the rules confused me, mainly because the section were not all together.

Hello

I am Delray Curtis, a.k.a jrton80 here and elsewhere - which is a Dart reference I started using once I started picking up ton 80 in Darts (3 triple 20s). Of course, I am so out of practice - I only hit one the last time I played a _01 game. This is the third time I attempted to write something for ...
