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.
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.
The blocks that have not been paid for have now been "bought" by me in the name of the Troops. If either of them wins (really, if any of my blocks win), I'll take those winnings and drop them off at my local shop for the next shipment to the troops overseas.
Thanks for setting this up and picking up the rest of the squares. Good luck to all!
What a game!!! Did anyone expect THAT?!?!
1st Quarter (50 cigars): Miguel Rocha2nd Quarter (80 cigars): Erich Heintz (@Muddybulldog)
3rd Quarter (50 cigars): Jay Lundy
Final: (300 cigars): Michael P Stewart
N/S/E/W of Final: Matt Hill, HardlyClerkin, Matt Ross, Smokin Logan
Congrats to all the winners!
This is good - I believe Jay Lundy was going to randomly select who his winnings go to. SO we may all still be in luck for a final winner -
I already spoke to Jay and his prize is being donated to the troops in his name.
PERFECT Choice - could not think of a better cause
Thanks for putting it all together Matt - Appreciate it !
