My favorite football game in either Pro or College form. Only problems are that their assumptions changed from set to set, so you can't play them against each other, and in only a few years did they get the field goal performance fairly realistic.

We LOVE this game!! We somethimes play partners & let one person play offense & one defense, then switch at the half.Just so more people can play.

Awesome and should be picked up by another company!!! League play is REAL COOL! Used to do our own play-offs and Super Bowls too! Paydirt also has a loyal fan group on Yahoo! so sign up and join in on the latest. Try picking up the latest charts by "eamays" on eBay. His are very accurate and well made, unlike some canned home made versions out there. PAYDIRT lives!

What makes this game so great is the easy to read charts you can see teams weakness and strengths. No other football game flows as nice as this one.

Have all officially produced seasons from 1969 through 1993. Looking for either the 1975 set or post-1993 Data-Driven football or Redzone charts.

I dread to think how many times I have played this - probably 10 times more than all the other games on my list combined. Just perfect mix of good mechanics, colour and excitement, and so fast to play that you could always fit in one more game. Genius

A very fun to play simulation of each team from a given season. You really feel like you're coaching the team. Fairly simple to learn and really fun to go head-to-head, especially challenging if you have a weaker team. Would love to play in a league!

This classic football game has been a favorite of mine since I was 11 or 12. This game is always a hit with newbies. I play this by the historical schedule for the entire season as a campaign game. It took a few years but we finished the 1978 season, and are half way through the 1979 Season right now. Can't beat these old charts done by Dr. Nicely.

A classic. Sports Illustrated and mathematics guru Thomas R. Nicely devised the mechanics of this game, which uses realistic team charts. There are still many people who love this game, more than 20 years after it unfortunately was discontinued. But the good news is there are several third-parties who make charts. Do a Google search for "Data Driven Football" to find the highest quality charts.

Several of my friends and I played this game ritually during our Jr. High and High School days. We reminisce about it all the time. This and similar baseball and basketball games are what occupied nearly my entire youth.

This game is perfect for me. I love football, and I really love it when simulated in a board game. This isn't going to be for everybody, particularly people who dislike sports, but this is one of the best in the genre of simulation games that use the mechanic of cross-referencing two guesses and looking up the result on a chart. This is clearly the best football strategy sim I've played, and I've played upwards of 15. The decisions are fresh with every new matchup, even if you only have one season. This game perfectly balances playability with depth, so it's not as deep as some other football sims, notably Strat-o-Matic Football, but it is more intuitive and faster. The mechanics behind it use common sense and football rules to make the game flow very cleanly. The description included on every team is also good to allow a quick high-level assessment of a team's strengths, which is invaluable for a new player. The defensive play-calling is satisfying, with a correct defensive call likely to shut down the offense. Great replayability. I've even played a full 16-game season of this with a friend. Great game in all regards.

Of all my games, sports and otherwise, this is my favorite. I really like playing with real teams, based on their actual statistics.
