I've been playing since the early paper copy days. It's a great format and the fact that all events chosen for the GridCard are televised makes it that much more fun - especially when you're in the hunt.
Love the online version. The AutoPick feature is fantastic. Using it as a starting point, or just going full on AutoPick, helps keep me from fretting over every pick.

So much fun to watch the games when I’m competing for bragging rights against friends and family

It's fun to be a player on GridCard. I look forward each week to making my picks and seeing the results. I like to compare my statistics to the other GridCard players and get a kick if I have a good week. I also enjoy reading the blog site to learn how others have been doing. The list of players is growing and that will make it more exciting. If you enjoy sports, you should give GridCard a try

I'm a long-time GridCard player, one of the originals. Got started betting parlay cards years ago--then my bookie got busted. Lucky for me.
My friends on the ProGrid Tour and I place 23 bets on 34 nationally-televised games each week, and it costs us nothing. On average, bookies take about 10% of every dollar bet--even more on parlay cards--so the GridCard has saved us thousands in vig.
But you don't have to play for money to enjoy the GridCard. And you don't have to know anything about sports to play--and win. Every bet is fifty-fifty (or close to it) so the fantasy football podcaster and the little old lady who doesn't know the difference between a touchdown and a touchback have about the same chance. In fact, a player using AutoPick wins the GridCard about half the time.
And you don't even have to win to have fun. The bad beats are just as exciting as the game-winners. Watching sports wouldn't be the same without the GridCard. I'll be playing every week.

I am not a big sports guy. There was a time, back in the 90s, when I religiously watched the Detroit Red Wings. But, now, I can't remember the last Wings game I've watched.
Even though I don't actively watch sports I do watch (and play) GridCard. Every week.
Every week I make sure to get my picks in, I'm a heavy AutoPick user, and every day I log in to check how I'm doing. At the end of the week I love seeing whatever Achievements I've won - or got close to winning. :)
Maybe next season I'll be back on the Wings train ... we shall see.

I wasn't sure that I wanted to play GridCard. I'd pretty much stopped watching sports other than Detroit Tiger baseball (not worth it this year), and Michigan State Basketball.
After the first week, I was hooked. My wife, who also plays, and I were up late on a Tuesday watching some random college basketball game come down to the wire. The outcome of the game was not in doubt, but the spread was dead on and we both had 9 points on opposite outcomes.
A last second, no-reason-to-try three pointer fell, and there was pandemonium in the house. Crazy.
Can't wait until football season!
