PAYDIRT and BOWLBOUND ITEMS

These pages are continously being updated.  New Items can appear at any time.




The following items are broken down into two sections... the CHART items and the COMPUTER items.  Yes... there is a computer version of this game!




COMPUTER BASED GAMES



BOWLBOUND

Computer Bowlbound allows you to play football using any of the College teams from Sports Illustrated / Avalon Hill's Bowlbound Set 1, 2 or 3.  The computer version is a faithful recreatoion of the board game in every way.

The game features allows you to use Yardage Factors or play "straight up".  You can also choose who is home or do away with the home field advantage and play at a neutral field.  There are variables that you can set which will enhance your enjoyment of the game along with increasing the statistical accuracy. 

Speaking of statistics, the game shows the running stats in a window so you know how both teams are performing during the game.  Rushing, Passing, Kicking, Penalties and more are covered.  This feature eliminates the book keeping found in the chart version.

This game is played just like the Chart version.  The offense calls a play and the defense selects a defense... the dice roll is shown and the game results are computed exactly as you would in the chart version... except the computer does all the leg work.

Best of all, you can play solitaire and coach one team, both teams or let the CPU take either or both teams.  You can also play via the internet against a human opponent who has a copy of the game.

This game has been tested and works with Windows 98, ME, XP, VISTA, Windows 7 and Windows 8.  We offer limited support and will assist you if we can.














The computer version of BOWLBOUND contains all 78 SI/AH charts, including the 6 unpublished but official teams.  The game has been tested and will run in both XP and Vista.  Network and Internet play are featured.

Third party charts are compatible with the computer version.  Ed Mays charts and the Jackson/Grayson charts will all work just fine in the game, if you are the rightful owner.

PAYDIRT




Paydirt went through numerous changes over the years.  The chart designers and the chart format changed more often than true fans would have liked.  Many of the "original" charts were not the true charts that were designed for the game but instead were hodge-podge or manufactured to fit the game design. 

Thomas R. Nicely was the creator of Paydirt! And Bowlbound! charts for the Avalon Hill Game Company from 1977 to 1995.  Mr. Nicely created published charts for the 1976 to 1983 seasons and the 1988 to 1993 seasons.  

One complaint of fans and game players alike is that, for example, the '85 Bears chart that shipped with the game does not perform as it should. You may or may not know that chart was a makeshift design produced by a part time designer (Barnes).  The actual game chart (produced by Nicely) shows the Bears as a more powerful team and reproduces their style far better.  You can purchase that chart here along with many others.

Mr. Nicely also created more than four dozen charts that were never published.  These charts are as follows:
