I consider myself pretty good at darts – I mean I own my own set of steel tip ones, and I played on a league for awhile. I wasn’t good as compared to anyone else in the league, but I do okay during the occasional bar throwdown. So when trying out DartsLive, a new electronic darts board that mixes the game with a social networking element of sorts, I thought I might be able to hold my own when pitted against another team across the globe.
I thought wrong.
Max Wurzer, my guide to DartsLive set us up against a team in Japan, where they’ve been using the electronic boards for 10 years (and maybe even taking a few lessons, but I digress) and they were able to beat my teammate and I at cricket in about five minutes.
The coolest thing is that we could SEE the pair on the video screen as they annihilated us. I’m sure they also enjoyed watching me with my hands over my face in mortal embarrassment for the duration of the five minutes.
