I will be running the BGG Super Bowl Squares again. The format will be the same as last year. If this grid fills up quick and there is enough interest I will open up more grids. No one had an issue with me playing while running it last year so I will be taking part again this year as well.

The grid is open for picking!

The lowdown:

The grid is available at: http://www.schlotto.com/bggGrid/

Due to demand, grid 2 now available: http://www.schlotto.com/bggGrid/grid2.cfm

You just enter your BGG username and then click away on the squares you want. If you choose your squares first you will have 24hrs to send me the corresponding GG or your picks will be removed.

Basic Rules:
- 1 GG per square
- Once all squares are filled numbers will be randomly assigned to the grid
- All GG for claimed squares must be sent within 24hrs of claiming or your squares will be removed.
- Going with last years breakdown we'll have prizes for the score after each quarter in the amts of 30gg/30gg/30gg/60gg* (*in case of OT this will be split 30 for Q4, 30 for Game End.)

Please note: thanks to jamesdavis and randy cox for each kicking in an extra 5gg to the pots and a big thanks for aldie for adding 90gg to the pot!

Good luck!

For those not familiar with how this works:
After all the squares of the grid are filled the rows and columns will be randomly assigned a number from 0-9 in place of the # placeholder. At the end of each quarter, the person with the cell that sits at the intersection of the one's digit of each team's score wins the prize for the quarter. For example, if at the end of the first quarter the score is 13-0, the person at 3-0 wins the prize.

5 GG sent as tip (wouldn't it be nice if we could put a subject with each tip?).

Thanks.

Just use Amount-other and there's a nifty dialogue box.

Please confirm the 40 gg is for end of game, not necessarily 4th quarter?
(or it could be 20 for 4th and 20 for end of game)

Well, I think I just snagged the final 3 squares, so if you want to open a 2nd one, now's the time.

Thanks for your efforts on this.

The score at the end of the 4th quarter is the same as the end of the game, isn't it? I guess it could always go into overtime...

Are you one of those rules lawyers?

I never even considered OT. We'll say its 20 for Q4, 20 for game end in the event of OT.

Grid ones final payout is now 45 (20/25 OT split) thx to jamesdavis who donated 5 to the pot.

I think he meant "now" 45 gg. Since I'm in both grids, I liked the symmetry so put in the extra GG so that the second grid will be the same as the first.

Yep, that's quite a typo, thanks for the catch guys.

The pots have increased again!

Aldie has graciously kicked in an extra 90gg for the pot.

The payouts are now as follows for both grids:

30/30/30/60*

*In the case of OT this will be split up as 30 for Q4 and 30 for game end.

Thanks again to aldie, jamesdavis and randy cox for kicking in extra for the prizes.

I was scouring the site when I saw that there was 10 squares left. I figured, whatever, I'll go ahead and get some. So I spent my last 6 GG and somehow got lucky and won 2 quarters and got 10 times my investment back. I'm enjoying finally having an avatar.

Thanks for running this!
