Super Bowl Squares In 10 Steps: Enjoy The Game

Updated on February 1, 2015

NEW ENGLAND NATION

Yes! The Patriots are in the Super Bowl, so I won't pretend to be indifferent about the outcome of this game, because I want the Pats to win it. With that said however, there have been many of Superbowl's I have enjoyed and been an active and invested viewer of, while remaining indifferent to who won the game. How is this possible you may wonder? Super Bowl Squares!

What I like about Super Bowl squares is the random selection of it all and the actual possibility, due to the many ways to get points in Football, for any of the numbers 0-9 to be the quarter ending score. I may be rooting for one team one minute, and the next team the next minute (NOT IN THIS GAME), because of a 2-point conversion, or field goal kick. Its about getting to the right number at the right minute, but you have to be watching and enjoying the football to do so.

I decided to put together a very brief how-to outline with visuals on how to make Super Bowl Squares for anyone and everyone to enjoy. Though the Teams in my examples may be limited to Super Bowl XLIX, the way to make and use them, are transcendent to any Bowl, any year. Enjoy.

The Squares

Start with a 11x11 row square table- Note, One row will act as the score labeling column, so really the playing board is only 10x10, and you may want to shade the label rows differently as this table has here.

SELL SELL SELL! You cannot do anything with an unfinished board, so in reality, this will be filled up entirely before you would proceed to randomly selecting numbers for the score box squares.

10 Steps To Super Bowl Fun

1. Print out, or create your own, table consisting of 100 blank squares.

  • There should be an extra column (or even just like an extending line to label the rows), at the top of the table and along the left side, that you will need to fill in the score numbers in, eventually

2. Sell, sell, sell- A majority of the work done for football squares happens once the squares are sold off and the money is collected.

  • Think about it this way though, the higher you set the buy in for a square, the more money can be won each quarter!
  • see table at the base of the page

3. Once you have sold off all 100 squares on the sheet, you can then start to finish labeling your squares sheet.


4. Label the Top Side and Left Side with the coordinating teams, it doesn't matter which team goes where, random is the key.


5. Take a hat, or opaque bowl, and place 10 torn pieces of paper into it, each with a number from 0-9 on it. You should have only one of each number labeled in the bowl.


6. Have someone randomly select the numbers from the hat,and label the score boxes at the top and side of the sheet with the 0-9 numbers you are selecting at random from the hat.


7. As the numbers are called placed them in the next box along the row for the top side, and then the left side of the table


8. Make a copies of the squares board and distribute among the people who participated in the buy in, and who will now all have a chance of winning some money during the game!


9. Locate your square on the sheet and figure out which scores you should be rooting for. Wherever your square falls, you want the last number of that teams score to be the number you chose, during a quarter ending or final score.

  • See visual below for example


10. Watch the game, cross your fingers, and root for your numbers! Good Luck!
