Easy Super Bowl Game Board

It is easy to make a "numbers" game board for your Super Bowl party!  Even people who only tune-in to watch the commercials will have fun keeping track of the score (if they have a chance to win prizes)!

Start with a 10x10 grid.  (I made mine in Excel, but you could simply draw one.)  Print one team name across the top and the other down the side.  Remember to leave blank spaces for the numbers that will get added later.

There will be 100 spaces on the board that need to be filled in...

Let's say that there will be 10 people at your party.  Have each person sign/initial 10 random squares on the board.

Now you are ready to add the numbers!  From a deck of cards, take out one Joker (for 0), plus Ace through 9.  Shuffle your mini deck and flip the cards over one at a time to fill in the top of your board.

Shuffle the cards again, and do the same thing down the left side.

Now everyone has their numbers!

I'm going to award a prize after each quarter.  (The prizes could be:  candy, small amounts of cash, scratch-off lottery tickets, gift cards...whatever!)

To determine the quarter winner:  Let's say the score after the first quarter is Green Bay 14, Pittsburgh 10.  Go to the Packers "4" on the board, and the Steelers "0" and see where they intersect.  In my example, Cody would be the first winner!

This is fun!  Give it a try, even if there are only two of you watching the game...the "prize" could be who does the dishes all week!

We'll be rooting for the Central Division...

Go Packers!

To help you keep track of your favority commercials, here is a Super Bowl Commercial Rating Sheet (2014)

Note:  If you need another game for your party, try reading these "alternate" football team names aloud for everyone to solve:

Kim's Kandy Kreations, Six Sisters Stuff, Sewlicious Home Decor, Skip to my Lou


  1. I think I might try this with the kids. Rainman is working evenings, so it will just be us. I like the idea of dishes for the week!!! Woo Hoo!

  2. We do this at the office, and it's always interesting to see how it turns out. It's also a great way to participate if you don't know the first thing about football!

  3. What a great idea. I like the idea of the dishes too! Maybe our winner can get away from all chores for the next week. I've pinned this to my Football party board and will be sharing it on social media this week. Thanks so much for linking up at Shindig Saturday. As you may know by now, I love your ideas!

  4. Thank you for pinning this to your board! (I have a hard time remembering how to do this every year so I had to write it down!)
