I, too, was a HUGE fan of the Paydirt boardgame. Nothing like the '78 Steelers defense! I played the game constantly while in middle and high school. Now that I develop software as a profession I decided to develop a PC version of Paydirt, and I also created software tools to collect play by play data from NFL.com and use this data to create charts for the current teams.
If you have any questions about the boardgame feel free to email, or visit my website:
There is Paydirt Yahoo! Group with ~700 members so this game has stood the test of time!
