TV Squad's Super Bowl squares game
Here's how the game works. A
game board is drawn up with 10x10 squares. Across the top of the board is the name of one team, and to the left of the
board is the name of the opposing team. The names of the game players are put into the game boxes in a random fashion.
Once all of the squares have been filled with names, the columns on the board are numbered 0 through 9, though their
placement is random. The same goes for the rows.
See here for an example of how the board would look (minus contestant names, of course).
The numbers beside each team name represent the last digit in the score for that team. For example, if the score were 14 Seattle, 3 Pittsburgh, the contestant who's name is in the square under the '4' of Seattle and the '3' of Pittsburgh would win.
We will give one T-Shirt away at the end of every quarter of the game (the T-Shirt image is to the right; green on black shirt). If your name is in the box with the corresponding score for the quarter, you win! We will then contact each winner for your mailing address. In the event that you win more than one T-Shirt, you can be a nice guy and offer it up to another contestant, or keep it for yourself -- the choice is yours.
To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment to this post mentioning either your favorite or least favorite aspect of TV Squad -- if you simply leave a nonsense or one-word comment, it won't count. The first 100 people to comment, following those instructions, will get a random spot on the board (you can only enter once). Once the board is full, we will update on this page with the names filling the squares, though with no numbers assigned to the squares yet. Then, the Friday before the game, we will update the board with the numbers.
Confusing enough for you? Here's another description on how this game is usually played. Also, if you see that we've reached 100 comments, don't let that stop you from commenting! There's a chance someone didn't read the directions here fully and aren't qualified for a square. Also, if we get 200 elegible comments, we'll open up another pool alongside the first one!
