Losing, Winning and a Draw
In case of a draw players or teams will keep on throwing untill 1 player or teams have thrown more numbers then the opponent.
- Example 1: if both players/teams end with outer bullseye (within the same round) they need to continue with 20 untill one of the teams throws less then the other.
- Example 2: if player/team 1 is in striking range and completes the game with outer bullseye, player/team 2 can win by throwing inner bullseye or make a draw by ending also with outer bullseye. Player/team 2 loses if the results of throwing is less then the outer bullseye of player/team 1.
- Example 3: player one throws triple 3, outer bullseye and double 20 and player 2 throws triple 3, inner bullseye and triple 19, player 2 wins because he ends with number 16 whilst player one ended with 18.
