Mine and ship precious metals across the solar system to make a profit!
Paydirt was created for the McMeeple Gateway to Games Challenge on The Game Crafter and was rated by the community as #10 of 74 entries, and 5th overall by the contest judges.
With simple rules and a playtime of less than 60 minutes, Paydirt has been designed as a 'gateway' game that feels like a custom manufactured tabletop game. With thousands of initial configurations of the solar system game board, players compete with their rivals to mine precious metals from asteroids and deliver them to colonised planets for payment!
"..though it might reference some existing elements from Catan, it really does function in a totally different way with the pick up and deliver element. The game feels intuitive and easy to teach."
