With no tournaments scheduled anywhere in Saskatchewan any time soon, players are turning to net-based games to keep their eye in.
The SDA’s top-ranked player Steve Kristjansson has some suggestions for where to get some online oche action:
“Webcamdarts.com is a great website with players from all over the world, with varying skill levels. The website is free to use, but there is an option to donate £10 (GBP) to help maintain the site. You’ll need to set up an account and have a webcam to play. There is a Facebook page associated with webcamdarts called ‘Western Canadian Enthusiasts of Webcam Darts Association’. Many Sask players are already on this page, and they have various leagues and tournaments running all the time.
“DartConnect is a great app for Android and IOS phones or tablets. It’s popular with PDC and CDC. This app requires a $20 (USD) account to play. Options to play with video include Skype or Facebook messenger, and it can even be streamed through webcamdarts.
“Jay Wirll in Regina has a Facebook group ‘Regina Online Dart League’. Many players are playing leagues and tournaments there as well.” – Steve Kristjansson
Thanks Steve! Steve says there is something called soft-tip darts on line as well but that doesn’t sound right to us. You mean they have soft tips? Weird.
