A dart board is a great accessory for any games room or home bar, but how do you decide between getting a bristle or electronic dart board? Why should you go for the traditional bristle dart board vs a nice new electronic board?
Dartboards can be mounted onto a backboard, wall or for the best look in your recroom, they should go in a dartboard cabinet. The cabinet will not only hide the dartboard when it's not in use, but most importantly, it protect's the walls from being hit by mis-thrown darts.
Electronic dart boards are becoming increasingly popular both in bars and in home game rooms . These dart boards allow for automatic scoring, score displays for multiple players and a large selection of different games. Arachnid now offers talking dartboards that harass the players if they make bad shots. Electronic dartboards require use of soft tip darts. This is nice because they are safer for younger members of the family. Most electronic boards allow for play against the computer. This is an excellent way to practice your dart throwing skills.
Which dartboard you choose is dependent on your needs and expectations. I think that the electronic boards are best, because the entire family can easily play, many games. There are other factors to consider though, such as the look of your dart board and how it will match your game room. We'll discuss the different styles in a different article.
