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.

Sent out payment this morning, FYI!!

You're in for 62.  Thanks.

When are you going to pick the x and y axis numbers for this Matt?

We're waiting on you.  As soon as I make sure we're all accounted for, I'm doing it, but that is proving to be very difficult until you fix that thing we discussed yesterday morning.

All-

We have 3 boxes left that have not been claimed yet.  We also have several entry "fees" that have not been received yet.  I know many are on the way, but I will be contacting to confirm shortly.  I'm aiming to randomly pick the numbers on Wednesday or Thursday afternoon in a live video herf on the site (so we have witnesses).

If you, or anyone you know, is interested in the last 3 boxes, please contact me immediately (or I'll purchase them myself).  If you have not sent your entry "fee" in yet (your name is red on the spreadsheet), please contact me immediately with details.

Thank you.

ill take 90 and 71

You're in for 2 more.  You have my address.

1 Box left!

I WANT IN!! I'll take the last box. 

dave if you want to double your entry you can have box #71 too.....that is on the same line as one of my other boxes and you are more than welcome to it if you want to cram 10 cigars in that box you are sending matt....i haven't sent the payment for that yet.

Dave - you've got the last box.  Let me know if you need my address.  And if you decide to take Brian up on his offer, let me know.

Matt, will we have the same score for all quarters, or will you pick four sets of numbers.....1 set of numbers for each quarter??

I plan on only picking one set of numbers.  I think its too complicated to have 4 sets of numbers.

All the boxes are filled now, so I'm just waiting to receive the final packages (or at least get confirmation that they are sent).  I'll likely do a live video herf sometime tomorrow or Thursday afternoon to pick the numbers live so we have witnesses to confirm that I did this on the up-and-up.
