I recently had a chance to play Pay Dirt from Crash Games and designed by Tory Neiman. Neiman from Alien Frontiers fame is on of the major reasons board games are where they are today in regards to crowd funding. I am also a massive fan of what ever it is Patrick over at Crash Games puts out. So when Pay Dirt hit Kickstarter back in April, I immediately put my 50 bucks on the line. Just before Christmas PayDirt (along with a few other goodies) hit my front porch, and two weeks later, it finally hit the table. With a new gaming group to boot.
Of course there are more rules, but this is just a small run through to give you an idea on how to play. The game is very tight, very pretty, and very, very mean.
