A Work Of Dart.

A slightly thicker dartboard containing a motor which will spin the dartboard when turned on. The speed is variable according to the level of challenge desired by the users. The motor and batteries are reinforced with metal to prevent being damaged by over-zealously thrown darts.

       It should revolve off center, so the bull's eye is moving too. But see link.

       And, while the board revolves, the number ring can revolve a different direction, plus, lights can flicker on and off, like in Press Your Luck.

       place the whole darts arena from oche to dartboard on a revolving turntable - get them drunken darts players feeling really dizzy.

       A slight amendment and you could provide gainful employment to retired dartplayers. Have it fixed to the back of the ample shirt of someone like Jocky Wilson and give them a five minute head start. When the competitors finally catch up with the (admittedly not very fast moving) target, the sheer skill in getting a maximum would do no harm to the game's long term aim to become an Olympic sport.

       It should be a globe.

       It should have tiny leg and arm restraints so we can pin up small animals and (not) take aim - circus-style!   

       (Just kidding...)

       A fantastic idea with one problem: Surely the nausea-inducing motion of the board would cause already-drunk players to give way to their impulses and vomit?

       Bars could probably use the hypnotic qualities of such a device to boost their turnout of expensive drinks.

       I cant see the darts getting stuck onto the spinning board as easily as the traditional one. infact i can see them getting deflected off and causing GBH to those nearby...maybe you should call it the "dark-board"

       Thanks [hidden], you've found a way to make me even worse at darts than I already am.
wagster, Nov 08 2005
  

       You're welcome [wags]. I feel your pain as well.   

       Well [contracts] has forethought what was going to be my next idea. A 3D dart board with a picture of a globe on it. You could get points for hitting the smaller countries. Or adopt a political inclination and go after all the oil producing countries. Or something along those lines.   

       I fail to see the problem [shinobi]. Surely darts would be as likely to stick into the board as on a regular board. Which, provided you are using a half-decent board and darts, should be almost all the time.
