Set Up a Super Bowl Pool

How to Set Up a Super Bowl Pool. There's nothing like a friendly little you-pick-the-score game to liven up the office during Super Bowl week. This pool, built around a simple visual chart, calls for no skill or knowledge of the game (although the winner may deny that).

Step 1

Get pens and a large piece of blank paper.

Step 2

Draw a 10-by-10 grid.

Step 3

Write the numbers 0 through 9 across the top, above each square.

Step 4

Write the numbers 0 through 9 along the left side of the grid, next to each square.

Step 5

Write one Super Bowl team's name at the top (the St. Louis Rams, for example) and the other on the left side (say, the Tennessee Titans).

Step 6

Sell each square for one unit, which will provide a 100-unit payoff. Players may want to acquire more than one square; it's best to use all squares.

Step 7

Write the initials of the buyer in the corresponding square.

Step 8

Watch the game.

Step 9

Enjoy the commercials more than the game.

Step 10

Match the last digit of each team's final score with the grid to decide the winner. For example, a score of Tennessee 13, St. Louis 26, would mean finding the square where 3 on the vertical scale meets 6 on the horizontal. If Bill chose the space where these two numbers meet, he's the winner.
