The best hosts you’ve ever known from Bullseye
Bullseye is a British game with a dart theme that was first aired on television in 1981. One distinct feature of the show is that it had an animated mascot that was named bully. The game had five rounds namely category round, pounds for points, charity interlude, bully’s prize board and bully’s star prize gamble. The different stages involved doing different tasks: The first round was the category round which had the players throwing darts at the board. The board had various segments which had different questions and points that each player would get depending on where the darts landed. The players who would win the ultimate cash price was the one whose dart hit the bull’s eye.
Round 2 was pounding for points which entailed the players throwing darts at the board enabling them to convert the points they have gotten to pounds by answering a general question. The team with the highest points after three rounds proceeded to the next level. The game would go on until the last stage where the winners would win a star prize which would mostly be a car, speed boats or a holiday.
