Excerpt from the book Sports the Olympics Forgot This book describes 40 sports that ought to be played but aren’t, because I made them up.
Injuries were anticipated so all the players wore goggles to protect their eyes, both from bangs on the head from other player’s boards and from errant darts that had been inaccurately thrown.
The game starts when the Starter Umpire throws the dart into the air and whichever player catches the dart in his board has control of the game. If the dart lands on the ground then there is a restart.
Players who trip, barge, or impede their opponents can have fouls awarded against them, which results in a free throw, As in football, if the foul occurs in the penalty area then a free throw at the dartboard can be awarded from the penalty spot, which the goalkeeper isn’t allowed to intercept.
