How to Organize Your Super Bowl Party Pool

There’s nothing like a friendly little you-pick-the-score game to liven up the office during Super Bowl week. This pool, built around a simple visual chart, calls for no skill or knowledge of the game (although the winner may deny that).

Score big with the football fanatics at your Super Bowl Party by setting up a pool. Note =  Gambling is illegal in many states.

After you get the football-friendly eats and decor ready, gather the gang for a Super Bowl pool. Follow some simple steps for setting up a pool, and pretty soon you’ll have the perfect game plan for Super Bowl fun–whether your team wins or loses.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Televisions
  • Colored Pens
  • Construction Paper
  • Permanent Markers
  • Poster Boards
  • Colored pens
  • Permanent markers
  • Other Football Fans

Steps:

EASY WAY= Just click below to print out a Pool Board

HARD WAY = Get pens and a large piece of blank  poster board.

Draw a 10-by-10 grid on the poster board. Make sure there is enough space in each square ( 2 inch x 2 inch) for participants’ names. The 2 inch squares will fit in a 10×10 grid on a standard poster board with room for the numbers and team names.

Pass the board to friends and family interested in placing a bet and buying an empty square, and have them write their names on the squares they pick.. Sell each square for $1.00, which will provide a $100 total pool payoff. Players may want to acquire more than one square; it’s best to use all squares. Participants can choose as many squares as they want

Write the name of the buyer in the corresponding square.

Once all the squares are full it is time to set up the drawing. Write the numbers 0-9 on pieces of paper and place them in a hat. Draw the numbers one at a time placing the numbers from left to right in the top row, continue across the top row until the numbers are gone. After that is complete you will redraw the numbers, this time placing the drawn numbers in the left column, starting at the top.

Write one Super Bowl team’s name at the top (the SAINTS, for example) and the other on the left side (say, the COLTS). The standard rule is the write the name of the winner of the coin toss on the top and the other team on the side

Watch the game, eat lots of food, and cheer as loud as you can. Enjoy the commercials more than the game.

When each game quarter ends, match the last digit of each team’s score with the grid to find the lucky square—and the winner. For example, a score of Tennessee 13, St. Louis 26, would mean finding the square where 3 on the vertical scale meets 6 on the horizontal. The person whose name is written in the intersecting square wins the pool. If Bill chose the space where these two numbers meet, he’s the winner. If no one claimed the winning square, declare whoever is closest to the winning square the winner.

Prizes will be awarded to the owners of the boxes matching the scores at the end of each quarter, and distributed as follows (If boxes were sold for $1 each): $10 for the 1st and 3rd quarter scores, $30 for the half time score and $50 for the final score.

Note =  Gambling is illegal in many states. However, you can make this a legal charity fundraiser. Everyone will get ONE FREE square ( no purchase necessary) with  funds being collected for charity from the purchase of additional squares for at least $1 or more each. The selected charity will earn 50% of the funds collected. The remaining funds can be distributed as the prizes = 25% Final score, 15% Halftime score, 5% for first and third quarter scores.

Celebrate (if your team won) and eat some more.
