Darts is a competitive throwing sport as well as traditional pub game, and there are a number of different games played using a dartboard by people of all ages and skill level.

Most professional matches are a simple game called “501 up”.  Each player starts with a score of 501 and takes turns to throw three darts. The score for each turn is deducted from a player’s total.  A bullseye scores 50, the outer ring scores 25 and a dart in the double or treble ring counts double or treble the segment score. The objective is to be the first player to reduce the score from 501 to zero; however, the last dart thrown must land in a double or the bullseye.  (“The Rules of Darts” info source: Masters of the Game)
