Pentathalon Events

These are the rules we intended to play by during our last charity tournament. At the last minute, we changed our minds. We do intend to play a tournament with this format soon. We picked up these rules from the dart newsgroup.

1.  Half-It:
	a.  Throwing order to be determined by random lot.
	b.  Targets are:
		(1) 20
		(2) 16 
		(3) d7
		(4) 14
		(5) t10
		(6) 17
		(7) Bulls
	c.  One point is given for each target hit.  NOTE:  For the targets of 20, 16,
	    14, and 17, a double or triple is only worth one point.  However, a Double
		Bull is worth 2 points.
	d.  Points are not halved, if the specific target is not hit at least once.

2.  'Round the Clock:
	a.  Throwing order is determined by inverting the current point standings.
	b.  Game consists of 42 darts (14 rounds).
	c.  Object is to hit each double on the board sequentially from 1 to 20.
	d.  If a player finished hitting all doubles, that player will receive 1 point
	    for each double hit (20 points) and one point for each dart that was not
		thrown.
	e.  If a player does not hit all doubles by the 42nd dart, that player will
	    receive 1 point for each double hit and subtract 1 point for each double
		not hit.  If a player does not hit at least 10 doubles, that person will
		receive zero points for the event.
	f.  Scoring Table
		Last Double Hit		Points Awarded
		   1 through 10	            0
		    	11                  2
    			12                  4
    			13                  6
    			14                  8
    			15                 10
    			16                 12
    			17                 14
	    		18                 16
		    	19                 18
                        20                 20 + 1 point for each dart not thrown

3.  Shanghai:
	a.  Throwing order is determined by inverting the current point standings.
	b.  Game consists of 20 rounds.  Each round has a different target wedge,
	    starting with the 1 wedge and going sequential to the 20 wedge.
	c.  Object is to hit one single, one double, and one triple at the target
	    wedge.
	d.  Player receives one point for each target hit.
	e.  Once a target has been hit, no further points can be scored for that
	    particular target.  Example, one a triple has been hit, a player cannot
		receive another point for hitting a second point.
	f.  If a player hits all three targets, that player will receive an
	    additional 2 points.
	g.  Scoring table:
		Target(s) Hits			       Points Awarded
		Single          				1
		Double	            				1
		Triple		    	        		1
		Single and Double       			2
		Single and Triple		      		2
		Double and Triple			 	2
		Single, Double, and Triple          		5

4.  Circles:
	a.  The order of throw will be determined by random lot.
	b.  The first person will throw to determine the first score.
	c.  The following person must beat the preceding score.  If not, that person
	    receives a circle.  The score, whether a circle was given or not, carries
		over to the following person.
	d.  If a player beats the previous score by exactly one point, that person can
	    erase one circle, if one exist.  If that player has no circles, then
		nothing occurs.
	e.  Once a player has three circles, that player is eliminated.
	f.  Bonus points:
		(1)  Scores:
			(a) If a player sets the score from 95 to 130, that player receives
			    1 point.

5.  Round-Robin 501.
	a.  Divide into 4 groups of 5 by the following seeded format based on total
	    points:
            Group A    Group B     Group C     Group D
              1           2           3           4
              8           7           6           5
              9          10          11          12
             16          15          14          13
             17          18          19          20
	b  If a tie braker is required to determine group placement, it will be a 9 dart
	   shootout, most points scored with 9 darts.
	c. Round-Robin match within each group.
	d. A match consists of 2 games of 501, easy on, double out.
	e. Points are awarded as follows:
		(1) 1 point for winning double.
		(2) Scores:
			(a) 95 through 130 - 1 point
			(b) 131 through 160 - 2 points
			(c) 161 through 180 - 3 points
		(3) Length of game (in darts):
			(a) 19 through 21 - 1 point
			(b) 16 through 18 - 2 points
			(c) 13 through 15 - 3 points
			(d) 9 through 12 - 4 points
		(4) Wins within each group:
			(a) 1st - 8 points
			(b) 2nd - 6 points
			(c) 3rd - 4 points
			(d) 4th - 2 points
			(e) 5th - 0 points
		*** NOTE ***:  If there is a tie for any place, the points are equally
		               divided between the tied players.  For example, 2 players
    			       finish with 7 wins and are tied for first.  Both players
			       will receive 7 points (8 + 6 = 14 / 2 = 7).
	f.  Within each group, the person with the most points within their respective
	    group automatically advance to the final round.  The remaining 4 positions
	    will be filled by the next 4 with the most points out of all the remaining
	    players.
	g.  If a tie braker is required, it will be a 9 dart shootout, most points
	    scored with 9 darts.
	h.  The final round will be a Round-Robin match with the remaining 8,
	    following the same format as the previous round.

For more information, you can either email Lance Kent, the individual that proposed this format, or you can email Tim Cronian, (Hey! That's me!), and we will help clear up any confusion. How points are scored WILL be posted next to each board for every match.
