I’m sure everyone knows the popular “Squares” game for the Superbowl but I thought I would add some other fun games to play during the Super Bowl to mix it up a bit! Don’t get me wrong…I love me some squares but to add a little more excitement to your Super Bowl party…see below!
For a fun gambling game at your Super Bowl party have everyone chip in an equal of real money ($10, $20, etc) into the pot. Give everyone an equal amount of Monopoly money at before the start of the game. Everyone will use their Monopoly money to bet on anything and everything related to the game or the broadcast (an over or under on how many times Myra Kraft is mentioned or if Madonna will have fishnet stockings on!). The person with the most Monopoly money at the end of the night wins the real money in the pot (or you can split it 80/20 for first and second place, whatever you would like).
Along the same lines as the first game, another fun game is the “Keyword Game”. Before the start of the game, you make a list of about 10 words that you think you’ll hear throughout the course of the game. And you can also assign drinking values – “Rematch” you drink once, “David Tyree’s catch in Super Bowl XLII” you drink twice….you get the idea.
Another fun game is to write up the names of all the key players on the Giants and Pats….put names in the hat and everyone picks. Every time that player is involved in a play, you are able to pass out a drink.
And when in doubt, you can always keep is simple with a SuperBowl Trivia game. At halftime or before the game, quiz your party people on Super Bowl factoids. The person or team with the most correct answers is the winner!
Just make sure that everyone knows to bring cash to the party. You don’t want to have that token person at your party that never has cash on them and is looking for an IOU!
