“You don’t have to be a beer drinker to play darts, but it helps”

The game of throwing darts is a popular pub recreation. “You don’t have to be a beer drinker to play darts, but it helps” was cited in the book Darts (1975), by Ivan L. Brackin and William Fitzgerald. The author of the saying is not known.


Wikipedia: Darts
Darts is a form of throwing game in which small metal-shafted missiles with a pointed end are thrown at a circular target (dartboard) fixed to a wall. Though various boards and rules have been used in the past, the term “darts” usually now refers to a standardised game involving a specific board design and set of rules. As well as being a professional competitive sport, darts is a traditional pub game, commonly played in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, the Netherlands, Belgium, Republic of Ireland, the Scandinavian countries, the United States, and elsewhere.
