The true North American standard, cricket is by far the most popular game played in bars across the USA and to a lesser extent Canada. It is pretty simple and a whole lot of fun. There is some strategy involved and even a bit of luck, so don't get down on yourself if you aren't the best player of the bunch. The rules are simple, you have to eliminate all numbers from 20-15 plus the bullseye by hitting that number 3 times. First person or team to clear their board wins.

Round the Clock

You simply start on 1 and move on to the next number after you've hit that one. You can't score the next one until you've scored the previous one. You move around the board until hitting number 20. First one to the end wins!
