What Is A Squares Game?
Squares (also known as Super Bowl Squares) is a type of game in which each participant chooses squares on a grid. The higher the value of each square and the more squares on the grid, the higher the overall possible win. Squares games are similar to fantasy football in that you’re making a selection (in this case it’s random) and hoping for a specific outcome.
Once all the squares are claimed, numbers (0-9) are randomly generated to represent points scored by the two corresponding teams. For Super Bowl LV, points for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are listed down the left side of the grid while points for the Kansas City Chiefs are listed across the top.
Those numbers represent the last digit of the team’s score too. So 3 would apply to the team having 3 points, 13 points, 23 points, and so on.
If your box lines up with the scoreline of both teams, you win.
How To Play Super Bowl Squares
The simplest (and most common) structure for a squares game is quarters. At the end of each quarter of the game, the score determines the four different ways to win. Usually the final score of the game (as opposed to the score after each quarter) is the biggest winner.
For example, if you have 0 for Tampa Bay and 7 for Kansas City and the first quarter ends with a matching scoreline, you would win for that quarter. However, if the quarter ended and Kansas City has 0 while Tampa Bay has 7, you would not win.
Why Use A Squares Game?
A squares game is an incredibly approachable way to get invested in the Super Bowl, because the outcome is based on pure luck. You could know nothing about the game, and your chances of winning are just as high as anyone else’s.
Of course, the more squares you own, the higher your likelihood for a win. But you have no control over what numbers you receive. That means you’re simply making your selection and hoping for the best.
At Gaming Today, our squares game generator and tracker allows you and all participants to quickly and easily set up your Super Bowl Squares. Everyone will be able to check how they’re doing as the game progresses in real-time as well.
Otherwise, you have to draw up a grid, write out each person’s name, draw numbers out of a hat, then keep track of who wins and who loses as the game progresses.
Plus, you can easily set up more unique grid structures, such as 50 or 25 squares where each box receives more than one number for a higher likelihood of winning.
