To play you need a computer or a mobile device with a modern browser. Obviously you also need a darts setup.
If you did not arrange a game with someone yet there are two easy options: Either join the chat and ask/look for a game there, or you can set up a public challenge when creating a game which will be visible to everyone else.
In order to determine the starting player you throw three darts at bull. Enter and submit each dart score individually in order of throw. Darts outside of bull count as 0. The first better result over the other player begins. This means that for example 25-0-0 beats 0-50-50 as player 1 had a better result with an earlier dart.
Currently only X01 games are available. Cricket will be available soon. More dart games might follow.
Lidarts supports experimental webcam games over Jitsi Meet, a video conferencing service. You can also play without a webcam based on trust.
You need to connect your webcam (or smartphone with appropiate software) to your computer. Before your first game you have to agree to the current webcam service notice. Create a game normally on the webcam page afterwards.
Both variants are welcome to play on Lidarts.
Currently tournament organizers can create a separate room with a tournament-specific chat, user list and result box. For brackets you need to use an external service. It will be possible to automate tournaments on Lidarts soon.
Open your inbox, enter the recipient's username in the box below and compose a new message.
You need to know your friend's username. Use the user search box in the lobby to find his profile. Click the friend request link there and wait for him to confirm.
In your profile there is a settings button with lots of options. We highly recommend to look through the options before you play.
There are usually two types of online players: Those who wait for their opponent to throw and those who don't. If you feel stressed you can set up an input block time upon game creating. We recommend between 5 and 10 seconds.
Players can set most of these statuses manually. Green = online, yellow = Not available, purple = Looking for game, blue = currently playing, grey = offline.
