It is All-in the Cards

Materials Needed

  • A deck of cards
  • Pen and paper to keep track of which card each guest draws
  • A hat or bag
  • This is a fun game of chance that will keep party guests interested in the Super Bowl even if the game itself gets boring. Since it is a variation of the extremely popular Super Bowl Squares game it should be a quick and painless explanation of the rules to your guests.


    Get a deck of cards and take out the Ace through 10 of any suit. You will need ten guests willing to play or some guests will have to buy multiple entries to get the number to ten total. You can charge $1, $5 or whatever your guests are comfortable with investing. Put all ten cards in a hat or bag and one by one have the players draw a card, keeping track of who draws which card.

    Whoever has the card that matches the last number of the combined score of both teams at the end of the first quarter wins the pot. For example, if the score at the end of the first quarter is 14-3 then the person with the seven card wins because 14 + 3 = 17, and seven is the last number. Rinse and repeat for each quarter of the game.
