Version one: The dart landed on "Iraqistan" (later "Saudi Iraqia"), accompanied by a mushroom cloud. Version two: It lands on France. Version three: Instead of a map, the dartboard has four options: Boom, Bust, Bailout and Burger.

* One character in ''OfficeSpace'' has a terrible idea for a variation on this which he calls "Leap to Conclusions", where instead of a dart board it is just a big mat on the floor with different "conclusions" written all over it. The idea is to just "leap" onto the mat when one needs to make a decision and follow whatever conclusion one lands on. Everyone he describes it to thinks it's a terrible idea, but apparently it is his lifelong dream to make it a real product [[spoiler:which he does after getting a fat settlement check for an auto-accident]].

* Unglued, the immortal joke set of ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', gives us the card "[[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=9771 Look at Me, I'm the DCI]]" (the DCI is the body that decides which Magic cards are tournament-legal). The card art is a crude crayon drawing depicting "[[SelfDeprecation the DCI's rigorous decision-making process]]" -- throwing darts at board with cards stuck on it.
