Easy Challenge: Checkout 72 in three or fewer darts.
Medium Challenge: Checkout 98 in three or fewer darts.
Hard Challenge: Checkout 131 in 3 darts.
As with most of the challenges, the easy came to me quickly, and in the first practice session of the week. My plan was to go T20, D6 for a nice, atypical 2-dart finish, with the backup plan of staying on the 20's should I miss into the single. As it happens, after a few tries I did just that: S20, S20, D16. I was throwing my 22 gram One80 Revenges wearing medium-shape glitter red Condors:
The medium was a similar strategy: My plan was to go T20, S20, D9. That way, I basically had two shots at the triple and could still finish. However, as Mike Tyson says, "everyone has a plan until you get hit in the face". My face hit was a miss into the single 1, leaving 97. Happily, I was able to hit T19, D20 for the finish (using my Durro MMA's):
The Hard Challenge this week is, well, hard. It requires all three darts, and none of them can be a single. There are a couple of decent triple-double-double options (T17, D20, D20, or T19, D19, D18) and a plethora of triple-triple-double options. My strategy thus far has been to chuck my first dart at the T17 and then if I hit it try for a D20 (or two), and if I miss spend my last one or two darts marching around the board on doubles practice.
If I eventually hit it I'll update :)
