Overview

Now you can play one of the world’s best-loved games anytime, anywhere. A working miniature dart kit, The Mini Book of Mini Darts has everything you need to get your game on, and more. Created, designed, and illustrated by the team behind the successful Darts! calendar, it includes 40 colorful dartboards (used for 43 games); an ingenious fold-out design that features a stand-up magnetic backer; six blunt-tipped magnetic mini darts; and a full-color book filled with games, rules, technique, lore, and trivia—a celebration of darts.

Ah, that satisfying thwack when the dart hits its target—but with no worries about needle-sharp projectiles going astray, or the need for a regulation distance between the oche (throwing line) and dartboard. Just set up the easel-style board on a desk, table, office cubicle, dorm-room floor—or yes, bar—then move back a few feet and play. The 43 games start on the traditional side, with classics like Cricket and 501 played on familiar boards of concentric rings, then move quickly into quirky, innovative, and fun challenges like Pyramid Power, Trip to the Stars, Cupid’s Arrow, Roulette, Please Stand By, and Coney Island Hustle. The boards themselves are works of art, with imagery ranging from bowling pins to Stonehenge to a mushroom and pepperoni pizza, from a Mayan calendar to a drum kit. Plus readers will learn about top players, the origins of -01 games, dartitis—the darts version of the yips—and how to master the perfect throw.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson Davis
Have you ever seen a competitive game of darts and wondered about the rules? If so, this is the perfect book for you. This book comes with 40 custom game boards and rules to play 43 dart games. The boards fit onto the custom magnetic easel which is also part of the book. Six magnetic darts are included in the package—so this small book gives you everything you need to learn how to play darts. Interspersed in the game instructions are fun facts, history and trivia about darts through the years (including a picture of royalty playing the game, dart world records, and a Beatles dart board). If you have never tried to play the game, the first part of the book is dedicated to teaching the basic rules of the game, showing how to throw the darts, dart vocabulary, and a simple explanation of the dart board. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson Davis; Ages 12 up.
