23 is the obvious answer, which means I must be missing something.

23
All other numbers lower can be got with 1 dart.
1 - 20
21 = triple 7
22 = double 12

How do you get 22 from double 12?

Double 12 minus 2

You've not read "London Fields" by Martin Amis, then...

My bad eye sight.
Whenever I need a finish of 22 I aim for the double 12.
I usually end up with a double 11 with that method. :roll: :? :?

One of the main characters is a professional darts player. He gets annoyed at the use of the term "triple", as it should be "treble".
Funny, but strange book. As are most of Martin Amis's.

The answer has to be 1.
if I hit a two, i cant have hit a 1, which is therefore the lowest score I couldnt score.

Still waiting - was there a point or a catch to the original question?

OK, I'll get sucked into this one.

If I have thrown two darts already and I am left with only 1 able to score, then is that the lowest score I cannot score as it wouldn't count, as it is counted but not actually scored?

Or is it 42?

I have a headache.

I think some of you are over thinking it. Unless it's a trick question, then it must be either 23 or 0, depending on the definition of "board".
