Trebles and Floorers – the Real London Games, Darts and Skittles

0 Love It
Save it
When darts players step up to the oche, it is a London board they face. Having emerged in the early 20th century, the London 'trebles' board took over the world, and from a game played in 19th century fairgrounds, darts now sells out at the O2 Arena. Darts historian Patrick Chaplin tells this extraordinary tale, while pub games expert Arthur Taylor explains how to achieve a floorer with nine pins and a cheese, and how London skittles, once played at over 200 pubs, lives on at one last alley on the edge of Hampstead Heath.
