The game of 801 is a test of your endurance. It is typically played with four players on one team. You can play it as a single-in, double-out or double-in, double-out. Here are some tips that can help you improve your chances of winning.
Stay focused on the game. With eight people throwing it can be easy to turn your focus away from the board between your throws. Make sure you have taken care of everything before the match, i.e. beer, smokes, bathroom break. Otherwise you run the risk of feeling anxious at the line because you took a break from the competitive atmosphere.
Beat your partners' throws. A fun game within the dart game of 801 is to try to beat the score of your partners who throw ahead of you. It’s a great way to stimulate the team to consistently throw high scores. Another idea is for each player to kick in one dollar before the 801 game starts and the person who shot the highest score wins the pot at the end of the match.
