Darts
One fact no-one can dispute when it comes to the history of darts is that the game of darts originated in England. Darts has been played in pubs and taverns all over the UK for the past 100 years and more. Much is speculated but if rumor holds true, the game of darts had its origin during the reign of King Henry VIII of England. It is believed that he told his archers to practice their arching skills all year round so they would be sharp and ready for battle at any time.
