Commercial Bingo

I gave everyone a blank bingo card. I printed then off the internet. I gave them a list of possible commercial sponsors like Ford, Coke, Doritos, GoDaddy.com anyone that they think might have a commercial in the super bowl. They pre fill out their cards before the game, everyone pays a dollar to play and then you mark off your cards as the commercial airs. You decide on what kind of bingo wins. Makes it fun for the people that come along but don't care about the game.

Party Game "taste test"

At our party we will be having a taste test. I plan to serve 2 or more different drinks in clear plastic cups and ask them to label it correctly. Each guest will have their own set of drinks. Using soda for the kidos.

EXCITING football party game

Our game is called SportsActionBoard. It's a game played while watching a LIVE football telecast. Basically, 2+ players sit in front of the TV with our game and make predictions on what they think will happen NEXT in the game. There are tons of options to choose from and the tougher the call, the higher the odds. Check us out at sportsactionboard.com.

I don't think these ideas are very good ones. Not a big deal, but they just don't sound very fun. Other, better fun games would be things like checkers, where every first down gained is a king move, and every touchdown you take a piece away. Or dice, where you have to roll six or twelve for every multiple of three that is scored. I think these are a lot more fun than the ones Donna posted. Not hating, just saying. Or like hopscotch, where every odd number represents the total yardage gained by an upback, while the yardage total is subtracted from the number of times you get to throw a stone. Something like that.

Favorite Super Bowl Party Game

Definitely the best game I've played at a Super Bowl Party was ipropfootball.com. Everyone at the party could play, the host of the party had some great prizes for the winner and there was alot of laughter when we were all riveted for the result of the coin toss and the other random events during the game.
