4-Player Team Freeze
Freeze will be a fun team event, with no skill-level or gender divisions.
Best-of-five-game format with freeze rule*. Four-player teams play four games of 301/master out and one game of 501/master out (if necessary) on four positions. 301 games are played with two players from each team, 501 game is played with all four players from each team.
*Freeze rule in a nut shell: If the thrower's partner has more points than their two opponent's scores added together, then the thrower is frozen, meaning they cannot go out/win.
NOTE: The 2014 Gay Games presented by the Cleveland Foundation may add events in the Darts competition at a later date. No events will be added after 1 May 2014. Please check this web page for information about additional events.

4-Player Team Freeze
501 - Each player starts with 501 points. The number of points collected while hitting a board with a dart is subtracted from the given player's points. The winner is the player who brings their points to exactly 0 points first.
CRICKET - Players need to hit 15-20 and the bull's-eye three times each, which in return "closes" that number out. Once you have closed a number out and your opponent has not, you can now score on that number by hitting it again. The winner is the player with the highest points scored, and all numbers closed first.
Darts tournament will be conducted under the consideration of the National Darts Association (www.ndadarts.com) and World Darts Federation (www.dartswdf.com).
