OP logically that is a very good point. You could make a lot of money making a dartboard with a large circular margin of error.
Even add a new rule to the game: 5 points deducted if you land in the margin, or whatever.
As for the philosophical answer to your question, I'd say it's simply because the error of missing the dartboard is rarely of enough consequence for
anyone to get upset or irritated enough to fix it, and because dartboards are often put into a cramped, small area to provide entertainment where
other forms of it won't fit. Too big of a dartboard would not be able to fit in a lot of places. Of course the only places I've really seen dartboards
are dingy little bars with bad lighting so your experiences may vary from mine.

The dart board actually originates from magic circles/summoning circles.
It is an evil, evil game.
