Are you interested in running your own Super Bowl Office Pool, but never really quite understood how these things operate? You have come to the right place. This article gives step by step directions to running a flawless Super Bowl Office Pool.
You will need to print a square grid, you can do this by following the link at the bottom of this article. From there you will go to the Office Pools page and continue on to the Super Bowl 100 Square Grid page.
Sell each square for a set dollar amount until all squares are full, a player may buy as many squares as they wish. Once the player pays for the squares they are to write their name in the squares of their choice. If you don’t feel you can sell 100 squares check out our 25 square grid and 50 square grid.
Once all the squares are full it is time to set up the drawing. This can be done in many ways, listed below are 2 examples. After determining the drawing method, draw the numbers one at a time placing the numbers from left to right starting with the first gray square box 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 gray square boxes in the left column, starting at the top. Example 1: Write the numbers 0-9 on pieces of paper and place them in a hat. Example 2: Get a deck of cards A through 10, the ace represents a one, the 10 represents a 0, 2-9 are face value
Now is time for the fun!! Begin watching the game, at the end of each quarter match the last digit of each teams score with the grid. Example: At the end of the first quarter the AFC team has 17 and the NFC team has 14. Go to the AFC top row of numbers and find the number 7(last digit of 17) then go to the NFC left column of numbers and find the number 4(last digit of 14) find where these two numbers intersect on the grid and the name in that square wins the first quarter.
There are a few different ways to split up the prize pool , make sure this is discussed before selling the squares. The most common method is to give the winner of each quarter 25% of the prize pool. If you sell each square for $1 the winner of each quarter will win $25. It is possible that a player can win all four quarters and the whole prize pool. Be sure to discuss what is going to be done in case of an overtime, some people will just ignore the overtime score, some people will substitute the overtime score for the 4th quarter, and others will divide the prize pool by 20%(one winner for each quarter and one winner for overtime). Once again to avoid problems make sure all of this is discussed before selling the squares.
