Just like last year, my age is a number you can score with one dart. The year before that, it wasn't, and it won't be next year.

How old am I?

You are...

51. Since you can score it (triple 17) and a 50 (bullseye) on a dartboard with a single dart, but not a 49 or a 52.

Last and next year, your age couldn't be thrown with a single dart, but this year you can, right? You are...

...either 30, 36, 42, 45, 48, 54, 57 or 60 years old!

Misread the question a little, you are now

51, congrats!
