Why are the scores on a dart board laid out the way they are?

The harder places to hit are smaller and more points. Also, for the bulls eye, it needs to be a circle because it's an eye! by layout if you mean the way the numbers are arranged...

- It's done mainly to punish inaccuracy i.e if your aiming for 20 there is a chance of hitting 1 or 5 on either side.
