Lawn Darts

Banned years as the world’s deadliest backyard game, lawn darts is back — but in a safer format, courtesy of Incredible Technologies. Target Toss Pro: Lawn Darts, the newest game in the TTP series, brings back all the fun patrons remember from childhood, minus the risk inherent in flinging heavy metal spikes. When scripting voiceovers for Lawn Darts, IT’s designers found inspiration in fond memories of family gatherings past — a heady mix of barbecue, Budweiser and expletives shouted by concerned adults. So, the game’s uncensored Raw Talk option spews adult-oriented epithets with every shot. Raw Talk is an operator-adjustable feature, and players also have the option of disabling it before the game.
