To create some fun for the big game nothing beats a Football Pool. While many do the basic $1 per square (or more). You can still create one that's fun for the family and does not require any money. Play for free. The grid you see is a basic set up, and let me share simple notes.
* You need at least 2 people or up to 100 to play (note if you have Odd Number of players like 3? it's okay.
* You need one to four prizes
* Use a good size square piece of paper/cardboard so we can read it.
* Pen / Sharpie
* A Deck of cards or 2 Dice
You're going to make a 100 squares grid
Place name of Home Team across the TOP, Visitor on the LEFT SIDE
Each player will have equal plays of the squares and they are to pick squares at random and write in their name. This has to be done before numbers are assigned.
Draw 10 cards from the deck. You need a 0-9 (total ten numbers) If you have ODD number players then you may have a square or more that goes blank or a no name here (perfectly fine as these would be played as no winner)
These random numbers are placed left to right across the purple squares on top (home team). Now repeat this for the for purple squares along the left side (see graphic)
You then decide if prize will be awarded at the end of each Quarter of the football game (4 prizes need) or Half time and Final score (2 prizes needed) or a Final Score (1 prize needed)
Prizes can be money, food, favors, use of car, first one at breakfast each day, movie rental, no chores, (be creative)
Winner is determined by the score number ( esample 24-13, Visiting team is a 4, Home team is a 3) On the Grid find where these two square columns intersect and thats you're winner (whose name is posted where these two columns meet on grid)
