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.

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.

Dude, hats off to you for that... but man, did this make me laugh, because all I could think was, "You can NOT win this contest." Hahaha! Have fun tonight!

Thanks for setting this up and picking up the rest of the squares.  Good luck to all!

Matt, great idea. I was thinking if I won, what would I do with 300 more sticks. I already replaced to 30 I used as my "buy in" with sticks I got at recent events. I will pick out a few I want to try and donate the rest to the troops. Awesome idea.
Congrats to all the winners! Make sure you post pics!
Oh, most definitely! Some may be more "provocative" than others....

Matt, don't send cigars for the extra blocks you had to buy unless you expect the original buyer's cigars to show up" thanks, again, Man!

What a game!!! Did anyone expect THAT?!?! 

Our winners:

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!

Grats to all. That safety really shook up the results.

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 !

Great contest, horrible game, thank you and congratulations to all the winners!
