    Darts.

    The ultra lame version of archery/knife throwing.

    It surely does not require simulation.

    Agreed.

    On the other hand, I could go for a darts simulator. Safer than using an actual dart board, mainly due to you can't miss and break a window with a simulator.

    The best dartboard setup I've ever played on was at a house we used to get riotously drunk at.
    The dartboard was right beside the backdoor which opened on the same side as the dartboard.
    High traffic firing line with drunkards is always fun.

    The computer repair place my dad was the manager of had a dartboard in the workshop.

    Every day at 17:00 they broke out the beers and had a game.

    One day my mother took me with her to go and ask him something. One of the techies was sitting just below and to the side of the board drinking his beer, eventually curiosity got the best of me and I asked him, "So why do you have all that blood on your pants?"

    It was only then they realized they were all so drunk none of them noticed they were hitting him in the leg every now and then.

    Hisao? What's the word for when it feels in your heart that everything in the world is alright?

    If you have a real dartboard in your house, you will end up with a lot of little dart holes in the wall. That's 100% guaranteed.

    I seriously can't even imagine a dart simulation being that great. Where do you "throw" your controller? At your TV? Because if you hold it like a dart, the aim is going to be way way off. You're better off holding it like a controller, and then thrusting it toward your TV as quickly as possible.

    Which is pretty fucking stupid sounding.

    And sexy.

    In college my roommates and I were pretty horrible tennants. At one of our places we made a game out of Darts that was like HORSE. The basic premise being that you threw the dart at some surface int he house and then the next person had to repeat. This was actually a step down from our previous apartment where we had a door that we threw knives at. We replaced the door before we moved out so we weren't total assholes.

    I was agreeing, but then I remembered I don't like to play darts in real life, but I did enjoy playing them in Shenmue.

    In high school, there was a big piece of Styrofoam in the photo room. Someone decided to draw a dart board on it, and we would throw scissors at it when we weren't supervised. They stuck in it pretty good.

    Also, fake darts is less damaging to your home and it sucks waiting for a dart board at an establishment.

    well, wii/kinect/move/whatever-bowling is convenient. The nearest bowling alley is 40 minutes away. Bowling is a thing that requires planning and coordination just to schedule. Wii-bowling on the other hand, you just do.

    Darts on the other hand, I mean that is easy, takes very little space. You don't need a dedicated facility to play darts-- just a board, a wall to put it on, and some darts.

    This.

    I set up a dart board in my house and I got some corkboard for behind it. Only my youngest sister-in-law was terrible enough to miss the entire thing on occasion. It was fun for a quick, "I'm bored, what to do, throw some darts!" moment.

    That reminds me, I need to pick up some new darts. Old ones are falling apart.


    edit: Also, in comparison to bowling, some jerk arsonists burned down our 1 month from being 50 year old bowling facility which was the only one that was close. :( They had just done a major overhaul of the place too and aren't rebuilding because they were underinsured as they hadn't redone the insurance on the place yet.

    Sounds like a good idea, but unless you're planning on corking your entire wall, you'll eventually get some idiot who doesn't know how to throw a dart putting a hole in your wall.

    Pretty sure it's a law or something.
