How does this vary from the normal 100 Square Grid?
The concept is the same as the regular Football Squares, but each square will now have two numbers in the left hand column, and 2 numbers in the top row. This gives each square two chances to match each teams score. This size grid works great if you don't have a lot of people to play. Our Football Square Rules article goes a little more in depth.
Print the square grid from above.
Take the grid around to family, friends, and co-workers, having each participant place their name in the square or squares of their choice. If you think you will be unable to fill the entire grid check out our 100 square grid or 50 square grid.
Once all the squares are full it is time to set up the drawing. This can be done in many ways, listed below are 2 examples. After determining the drawing method, draw the numbers one at a time placing the numbers from left to right starting with the first gray square box in the top row, continue across the top row until the numbers are gone. After that is complete you will redraw the numbers, this time placing the drawn numbers in the gray square boxes in the left column, starting at the top.
Example 1: Write the numbers 0-9 on pieces of paper and place them in a hat.
Example 2: Get a deck of cards A through 10, the ace represents a one, the 10 represents a 0, 2-9 are face value.
Now is time for the fun!! Begin watching the game, at the end of each quarter match the last digit of each teams score with the grid.
Example: At the end of the first quarter the team listed at the top has 17 and the and the left column team has 14. Go to the top row of numbers and find the number 7(last digit of 17) then go to the left column and find the number 4(last digit of 14) find where these two numbers intersect on the grid and the name in that square wins the first quarter. You will follow this step for all four quarters. Besure to discuss what is going to be done in case of an overtime, some people will just ignore the overtime score, some people will substitute the overtime score for the 4th quarter, and others will declare 5 winners. Once again to avoid problems make sure all of this is discussed before the game begins.
