There are many kinds of dart boards offered for purchasing. There are the kinds that have sharp tips on them that can do a lot of damage to what ever they hit. There are also Velcro darts that stick to a special dart board. These are good for kids and for areas that can be damaged by sharp darts. There are magnetic dart boards that have magnets on the ends of the darts. These darts come with a metal target and they can stick pretty well to the target.
The Velcro dart boards can be hung pretty much anywhere but you don’t want them near a television set, window or mirror. They may not damage but they may mark shiny surfaces. They are good to hang on the back of a door or on a refrigerator. They can still hurt if they hit a person but not as badly as other types of dart boards.
Magnetic darts can cause damage if they hit surfaces not intended to be hit by them. They can make marks of walls and on floors. Hang them in an area that will not get marked like a cement wall or a hard wall that does not mark from the darts. These darts usually will not cut a person but they will hurt and bruise if thrown at someone. Do not hang magnetic dart boards near anything that can break.
Sharp darts can cause some damage. If you hang the target on a wall then your wall will get little holes in it from the darts getting stuck in the wall. You should get a big board and hang the target on that. Make sure the board is large enough to catch the darts so they do not hit the walls. Then hang the board with the target on it somewhere safe where people or animals do not walk. A basement wall is a good place for a sharp dart board or somewhere out of the way where all the activity going on is just the darts. Never throw a sharp dart anywhere but at the target. Never throw a dart when someone or some animal is near the target. Do not take a chance that you hit something that you are not supposed to hit with the dart. Sharp darts can be dangerous and they can damage anything that they hit. Even the target will wear out eventually from all the darts hitting it.
