### Super Bowl Squares 2014 Spreadsheet

The NFL playoffs are over and the final two teams are set to go at it in the championship game, meaning it’s time to download the Super Bowl Squares template - 2014 edition! The Denver Broncos will play the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII (48) on Sunday, February 2nd at 6:30pm. To make the big game even more fun start an office pool using our printable Super Bowl square spreadsheet. Fill in the squares, watch the game, laugh at the commercials, and see who wins and maybe make a little money at the same time. If you’re a fan of a team that like mine (the Factory of Sadness) that will never make it to the championship (or playoffs for that matter), then playing Super Bowl Squares will make watching the game more exciting and gives you something to actually root for. Others may be torn between cheering for their favorite team and cheering for their squares.

There are actually two versions included in this year’s Super Bowl Squares spreadsheet:
1. Printable version - This print ready version contains a blank grid, simply print it off and write all the player’s names down on the piece of paper. It’s quick and easy!
2. Electronic version - Manage everything directly in Excel. Press the randomize button to generate the random score numbers. Use this for running your Super Bowl pool. No modifications are necessary, though you can if you so desire.

### Super Bowl Squares Rules & How to Play

Listed below are the instructions on how to play Super Bowl Squares (which are also included within the spreadsheet, along with an example):
1. Participants “purchase” individuals squares by writing their name in their desired squares, until all one hundred are filled.
2. After all squares are taken, the numbers 0 through 9 are written in the empty horizontal and vertical rows in random order (draw the numbers out of a hat).
3. After the end of each quarter of the game, match the last digit of each team's score to the corresponding square to find the winner. Tip: 0, 3, and 7 are the best numbers to get. 8, not so much.

Below is a short video tutorial I put together of how to use my Super Bowl Squares template in Excel:

Over 2,000 people downloaded last year’s version. My goal is to surpass that this year and I need your help! I would really appreciate it, if you enjoy this sheet, to share it on your favorite social media site. Let me know in the comments or by email which version you’ll use: paper or electronic!
