GAME INSTRUCTIONS G01 301 (Game option: L01, L02, L03, L04, L05, L06) Each player begins with 301 points, and must reach exactly zero to win. The score of each dart thrown is subtracted from the beginning score of each round. Exceeding zero causes the player to “Bust”, and the score returns to what it was before that round.
Freeze rule: a player can “go out” only if his partner has a score that is equal to or lower than both opponent‟s combined scores. If the partner‟s score is higher than the combined scores of their opponents, the player is “frozen” and cannot win the game at that time. The strategy then is for that player to get as low as possible in points and hope the partner has a chance to win the game.
G11 CUT THROAT CRICKET (Game option: L01, L02, L03) Cut Throat Cricket is played the same as Cricket except when a player closes a number and begins scoring, the scores are given to all opponents that do not have that number closed. The winner is the first player that closes all the numbers and has the lowest ir equal score.
G15 WILD CARD CRICKET Wild Card Cricket plays the same as Cricket except the numbers 7 through 20 and the bull‟s eye remains constant throughout the game. The drawn number is 2-digits “flashing” shown in the text screen with dot separation between 2 numbers. Once a number is marked by a player it is locked in and the number will not flash for the rest of the game.
From L01 to L07 : a life is killed by hitting their segment numbers regardless single, double, triple. Option Code No. of Life L08, L09, L10, L11 : a life can only killed by hitting a double. Option Code No. of Life G20 COUNT-UP (Game option: L01, L02, L03,…, L9) Score will be accumulated for each dart, the first player who reaches or goes over the set point will be the winner.
G23 HORSE This game will randomly choose a number for all players to hit each round. The player tries to hit that number as many times as possible. A single of the number scores 1 hit, double scores 2 hits, and triple scores 3 hits, single bull‟s-eye scores 4 hit and double bull‟s-eye scores 6 hits. At the beginning, each player has 5 lives.
The hardest segments to hit equal the lowest score. If all 3 darts miss the targeted area, your score will be 5. The game will recognize and score the best hit of all 3 darts thrown. Example: Dart 1 = miss (5), Dart 2 = triple (3), Dart 3 = fat single (4) players score will be 3. If player should miss the entire segment area with all 3 darts, the game will register a score of 5 when the START GAME / NEXT PLAYER button is pushed.
Player can have 20 pins if he hits the triple segment twice. There will only be 10 pins if player hits the double twice. Otherwise, you will only get 9 pins if toy hit the double with your second dart and another segment with your third dart. The perfect game score is 200 / 220 / 240 / 260 / 280 / 300 respectively for the options chosen.
