Pub Darts on WiiWare
Our fellow indie developer, Big Blue Bubble, just launched a dart throwing game on the Wii Shop Channel called Pub Darts!
You can view a quick video demo here:
Here's their description of the game:
Experience the camaraderie of your local pub's dart night without leaving your living room!
Pub Darts is a simple and fun darts game using the Wii's unique controls to mimic the dart throwing motion. Players will find themselves immersed in the ambient din of the local pub, playing for the most prized of all rewards... bragging rights! Players will step up to the line to play some of their favorites including 501, Cricket, Around the Clock, Killer, and Baseball. Multiplayer mode pits up to 4 players against one another in a battle to see who is the Ultimate Pub Darts Champion!
At only 500 Wii Points, Pub Darts is now available to US customers on the Wii Shop Channel. The worldwide release will follow.
It's pretty much family-friendly, though there is obviously an alcohol reference since the game is set in a pub.
Give it a try, and if you like it, be sure to buy it to support this indie developer!

Sounds interesting, but I didn't see a demo for it. Just an option to buy for 500 points. Not a bad price, but would like to be able to try it first.
