More Information Edit | History

from "The Avalon Hill General Index and Company History, 1952-1980"

Bowl Bound (1978)
Prior existing published design redesigned by Avalon Hill
Designed by N/A
Development by N/A

"Actually a replacement for COLLEGE FOOTBALL, BOWL BOUND received the updated PAYDIRT game system and 20 new all-time great team charts along with a new bookcase box. The team charts are subject to review for inclusion of the most recent outstanding college teams approximately every 5 years. Like PAYDIRT before it, the college version benefited by the same game system redesign by Dr. Nicely."


Ultimately, Avalon Hill only produced 2 new sets of teams to supplement the original 32. The first expansion set incuded 19 of the greatest teams from the 40's, 50's, and 70's(1940 Stanford was apparently added as a bonus giveaway in the publication All-Star Replay, by AH, to bring the total number of teams to 20, although it is included with at least some second editions of the game). The second expansion set added teams from the 80's(and '79 Alabama).
