Darts - Dart Playing Tip

Darts - Dart Playing Tip: "Dart boards are usually made of sisal fibers and each section is lined with thin metal wire. The numbers are normally made of wire. Regional variations on the standard board still exist in some parts of Staffordshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire. In particular, the Yorkshire board is identical to the standard board save that it has no treble ring and has a single, inner bull. The dartboard itself may have its origins in the cross section of a tree, although some historical records suggest that the first standard dartboards were the bottoms of wine casks; this game was called 'butts'."
