Dartoid #307: The Sun Darts Quiz Book

Mr. “More prolific than ever” Dartoid is at it again, this time lamenting upon the new darts book compiled by Chris Bradshaw and published by Harper Collins: The Sun Darts Quiz Book.

From the mind of Dartoid:

A new little darts book has popped onto the market. Compiled by Chris Bradshaw and published by HarperCollins, The Sun Darts Quiz Book is a fun read and, priced at roughly ten bucks, it?s a book worthy of a place in the library of any darts enthusiast.

The book is short at just 260 pages, but it?s crammed to the gills with 2,000 trivia questions. They cover the rules of the game, tournament history, the players and more.

Some of the questions are easy, such as: How much is the double top worth? Or: What American player is known as Johnny K?

Others are slow ball pitches lobbed straight across the Dartoid?s World plate. For example: Bed and Breakfast is slang for what score? According to the book the answer is 26. According to my book the answer is: a great date.

Here?s another: What is a ?woody??

One of the questions, having to do with Chris Mason?s troubles, is unfair ? at least it is in the absence of any mention of other player?s difficulties, such as Phil Taylor?s.

Some of the answers to the questions are true curiosities, like: Which professional darts player was born on the 180th day of the year? Or: Which player practices to a soundtrack of Beethoven and Mozart? The answer to both is John Part.
