What are Super Bowl Squares?

Super Bowl Squares is a popular game at any Super Bowl party because anybody can win, even non-football fans who are just at the party to hang out, have some snacks, and see the halftime show.

To win a prize, you simply need to own the Square that contains the last digit of each team’s score at the end of any quarter or at the end of the game.

How to play Super Bowl Squares

To play a game of Super Bowl Squares, you first need to draw a grid with 10 columns and 10 rows that intersect to create 100 Squares. The columns are assigned to one Super Bowl team and the rows are assigned to the other.

Next, randomly select numbers from zero to nine for each row and each column. Since certain numbers are more valuable than others in Super Bowl Squares (more on that below), the numbers should then be covered up so that no one purchasing Squares can see them. After players have purchased all the Squares and written their initials in them, you can reveal the numbers for each row and each column.

At the end of each quarter and of the game, whoever owns the square that matches the final digit of each team’s score wins a prize. For example, if the rows are assigned to the Chiefs and the columns are assigned to the Eagles, a player who has the No. 7 in their row and the No. 3 in their column would win a prize if the Chiefs led the Eagles 17-13 at the end of a quarter or the game.

What are the best numbers for Super Bowl Squares?

Since most scoring in football is done in sevens (converted touchdowns) and threes (field goals), some numbers are better to have than others. Zero is the most common last number for a team’s score, and the numbers 0, 7, and 3 have combined to hit more than 50% of the time in Super Bowl history.

The numbers 5, 2, and 8 are the worst squares to have, combining to hit approximately 8% of the time. However, recent changes to the way NFL football is played (such as teams attempting more two-point conversions and missing more extra points) means anything’s possible, so don’t lose hope if you get one of these numbers!

How to win Super Bowl Squares

Since the numbers for Super Bowl Squares are assigned randomly and not revealed until you’ve purchased your squares, the biggest key to winning Super Bowl Squares is having luck on your side.

However, you can still be strategic when choosing which squares you buy. For example, purchasing squares in a diagonal line increases the likelihood that you’ll get some of the better numbers, but it can also make you more vulnerable to getting a few of the worse numbers, as well. Another strategy is buying multiple squares in the same column or row and hoping that you get one of the best numbers for one of the teams.
