Dope or Nope

Lawn Darts ... at one time, they were probably a more popular back-yard picnic game than horse-shoes and badminton. Now? Well, they are illegal in the United States, because they can be used like weapons (and apparently, have been in the past).

I remember being a kid and watching my parents and their friends play lawn darts. Apparently, my parents were very responsible, as they didn't let the little kids play.

So, what are your thoughts about lawn darts? Dope, or Nope? Are lawn darts a cool backyard game, or are they potential dangerous weapons?

One time Los, all my cousins were visiting from Pittsburgh, so my parents bought a lawn dart game. I was so excited. I think I was 10 or 11. Maybe 12. Any way, I took my dart, aimed for the loop, and guess where it went? No where near the loop. It hit one of our kittens on the head. The kitten spun all around and it was dying. It was one of the saddest things that had ever happened to me to date. : (

Oh my goodness! Well - that would be one VERY good reason not to like lawn darts!
