Have you ever played the Superbowl Squares game? If you are having a party and want to add some friendly competition among your guests, this is the best game to do so!
There are many different ways that people can play Super Bowl Squares, also known as football squares. I’m going to list the directions below for the version we play!
Start off with an empty 10 by 10 grid (download your free printable below). This will give you 100 Squares for people to choose from.
The free printable provided already has the 2018 Superbowl Teams listed for you.
Now, start recruiting your guests to “buy squares” you can set the price to however much you want (we usually do $5 or $10 a square depending on how many people want to play). You start by randomly assigning numbers 0 through 9 to each column. Now each square represents a specific score in the game based on the column and row numbers.
We then cut up paper scraps and write 1-100 on each one and fold them up and have people draw numbers based on how many squares they bought. You will then write their name in the square that they drew.
Your Football Squares grid is now complete, and you just need to wait till the game is played to determine who will be your winners. A winner will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and Final Game score. The winner is determined by looking at the last number in each teams’ score, and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers.
An example would be if the score at halftime was Eagles 23, and Patriots 14. The last number for theEagles is 3, and the last number for the Patriots is 4. The square on the grid that has theEagles with a number of 3, and Patriots score of 4, would be the winner.
Payouts for the winners vary depending on your setup, but usually the 1st through 3rd quarter get about 20% of the pot each, and the final score would get the remaining 40%.
