    It depends on how good (or poor) you and your guests are at darts...

    I have a regular dart board. It's stayed longer than any of my pins.

    I've been thinking about this too. I have 2 friends with Arachnid Galaxy dartboards among their pin collections. Variety is always good. I suck at darts, but maybe if I had one of these I'd get better.

    Do you like death metal Joey ? Countless songs have been written about broken glass.

    Live dangerously and hang it on the back of the door.

    Sorry about that. I am trying to cut back on my reading.

    I've had a coin op arachnid dart board since I bought my first pin 16+ years ago. It uses plastic tipped darts, and for the past several years I haven't had it right next to any backglasses, so I've never seen any breakage. I like having it. It mixes things up a bit, and some guests are more into darts than pinball. I'd recommend it.

    The footprint is also way smaller than a pinball machine so if you can find a space that a pin won't fit but a dartboard will, that would be ideal.

    Darts are great! Prefer steel tip but if your guests are not that great than electronic is prob way to go. I see it kinda like pool though.. Fun to play a game or two with guests, but it's something that takes some practice to excel at. I suppose you could say that also about pinball but it's more forgiving to newbs

    I have one but not next to my pins. They don't take up much space when not played but do when they are. Also, special consideration needs to be made for safety regarding placement. It gets a lot of play when we have parties. I used to play it more often but barely have time to play pinball these days.

    I have my electronic dart board next to my pool table on the OPPOSITE side of my pins. Probably being over protective, but the beer gets flowing sometimes and just never know what could happen.

    My pool table gets the most play with guests and the pins are a close 2nd. Darts get the lowest amount of play, but is fun to mix in occasionally.

    My wife and I enjoy shooting darts on our Top Gun Challenge. We prefer dart machines with the monitor since we don't know many different variations of dart games and can choose from a long list of games.

    The darts the machines use are plastic tips and I couldn't see any damage caused by them.

    I think every Arcade needs a dart board. The monitor is the best part. As well, In case you ever have issues with yours, I think yours also uses a VGA monitor so you can modify it like this if you ever need to.

    Breaking Dad, I have the same machine and it's terrific. One suggestion, check the dart board section for broken tips in the holes. The dart board is easily removed from behind and you can poke the tips out easier that way.
