I've discussed this with a few of you and decided it was a solid enough idea to organize.

If you don't know what a Super Bowl Box Pool is, you take a 10x10 grid (100 total squares).  The AFC Super Bowl representative is at the top, the NFC Super Bowl representative is on the left.  After all the boxes are chosen/bought, I will randomly select numbers 0-9 out of a hat for the top/AFC boxes and do the same for the side/NFC boxes.  At the end of each score, you take the final digit in the score of the AFC and NFC teams, and find the corresponding box and the person who "owns" that box is the winner.  It looks like this:

(NOTE: The above image is an EXAMPLE!)

If the score at halftime is Giants 21 - Patriots 17, Box 36 would be the winner, for example. Make sense?

Now, the fun part. 

  • * Each box "costs" 5 "premium" cigars. We won't be too strict on what "premium" means, but we're not looking for dog rockets! ;) On the other hand, I don't expect 5 HTF cigars, Opus, Liga, Padron Anni., etc.  In the end, if you question it, just ask.
  • * You can "buy" up to 4 boxes at this time. If we have boxes leftover after the Conference Championship games, I'll likely open it up to buy as many as you'd like. Now that the Conference Championship games are over, there is no limit to the amount of boxes you can "own".
  • * You must mail me your "payment" and I must receive it within 5 business days or your box will be "reopened".  We won't be too strict here, but make sure you send your entry in a timely manner. You can PM me for my address.
  • * To enter, see the spreadsheet here and reply to this post with a box number (or numbers).  That box becomes yours (first come, first serve so check replies before yours) and it is your responsibility to get me your "payment" in a timely fashion.
  • * As soon as the boxes are all purchased and paid for, I will randomly select the numbers and post the final version of the spreadsheet as a comment to this thread.
  • * Payouts:
    • 1st Quarter: 50 Cigars
    • Halftime: 80 Cigars
    • 3rd Quarter: 50 Cigars
    • Final (including OT if applicable): 300 CIGARS!
    • Boxes N, S, E, & W of Final: 5 cigars each

I think that's it (but I probably forgot something). If you have any questions, please contact me.

EDIT: To make things easier, I've uploaded the spreadsheet to Google Sheets here.

Thanks _ Houston-JD

 

2 is yours. You have my address.
I will take boxes 53 & 95

You have boxes 53 & 95.  10 sticks please - address sent.

Hi, Matt. My cigars are ready to send in, but I still need your address. I sent you a message via CigFed about it. Thanks!

Replied.

Payment on the way! No bodyguards this time. sorry #9114901159815067597192

Dude, first, you sent some the first time and second, it is completely unnecessary.  So, while I'll call Logan a douche for not sending any - you are still my homeboy!

All- We only have a few more days for entering the box pool (and only 6 boxes left).  However, I'm still waiting on entry "fees" from several people.  Please make sure you ship them out ASAP (or at least contact me with details) to avoid losing your box.

I'll take 52 and 80 and ship tomorrow.

You're in for 52 & 80.  Please get your 10 stick entry fee to me ASAP.

I'll take 62. Will let you know if I can't figure out the DM to get your address.
