Set up

Installing your board

Using your Unicorn® Oche-Mate™ follow the instructions to hang your Smartboard® in conjunction with the Steel Tip (Black instructions) measurements. 

Fixed height

The bullseye of your Smartboard® should hang 5' 8" (1.73m) from the floor.

Fixed throwing distance (Oche)

The bullseye of your Smartboard® should hang 7' 9 1/4" (2.37m) from where you throw.

Oche Distance


Press the Smart button and your Smartboard® will wait until you have started the App for the Bluetooth to connect.

The Smart button will flash Green until connection is made.

Start the Scorebuddy® App (your device will ask to activate Bluetooth if not already activated) and wait for the Smart button to hold Green. Tap the icon in the top right corner of the app which will tell you if the board has successfully connected if you are unsure.

You are now connected and ready to select your game and players. Once selected the Smart button will flash green.

You are now ready to throw.

(Note: Android App users need to allow the app access to their location for Scorebuddy® App to function correctly)

Re-Connecting to the Board

You are now able to re-connect to the board mid-game should the connection be disrupted. When playing, in the top right of your screen you will see a message appear saying that the board has lost connection and you tap to re-connect.

 Adding players

In the top left of the main menu, press the button that has the outline of a person.

Tap on 'Add Player' and type the players name, then hit save. The players name will now appear in the list.

 Selecting players

Once a game has been chosen select a players name from the top box and the team will begin to fill up. If you wish to create teams, please ensure that the correct 'Add Player' box is highlighted.

 Playing against the robot

Make sure that in the Players section that the robots have a green tick next to their name in order for them to appear in the name box once you have selected the game you want to play. You must also adjust the robot level in the Players section too.

 Dart activation

Place the point of each dart into the centre of the Smart button before play begins. Failure to activate your dart will result in no score.

 Rotating your board

To enhance the life of you Smartboard® it is suggested to rotate after every session.

When connected and in the Home Screen, tap the icon in the top right corner. There you will find the calibration section which tells the app what number the board is closest to (factory setting is number 15).Rotate your board and move your number ring so that 20 is back to the top of the Smartboard. Now tell the app what number the Smart Button is closest to and touch + or - and a new number will appear.

 Intermittent scores

Please ensure your Smartboard® has enough battery power. Failure to connect may result from zero battery power. 
Unicorn recommend that your device is no more that 1m away from the board in order to ensure maximum connectivity. Any issues, please fully close down the app, not just minimise, in order to re-connect to the board.

 General rules


To decide who throws first each player must throw 1 dart at the bullseye, the player nearest to the bullseye throws first and the furthest from the bullseye throws last.

Tip - Remember this sequence when selecting the players in the game.

In Play

The players name will appear on screen when it is their turn to throw and the activation button will show green.In any game each player throws 3 darts, when all 3 darts are thrown regardless of hitting the target the players turn is finished until the next turn.

When the player has removed the darts they must press the activation button for the next player to throw.
