Darts is an old game, so this seems a good place to put this?

Darts: always a bullseye!
Darts is definitely much harder than it looks – perhaps it has something to do with that fact that this game is often played in bars and the accuracy tends to be inversely proportional to the beer consumption...

The technology behind the moving dartboard is hardly retro, but that was funny! Reminds me of this on the usefulness scale:

Could be usefull for handicapping players in tournaments so anyone could play.
Would make the game open to corruption though...

Just invert it... require not hitting the bullseye.

Exactly!
The fact most Darts games involve alcohol makes hitting the bullseye problematic. So a moving target would add to the fun. You could freeze the board when the dart is in flight, give them a chance...
