Also known as Block pools, Grid pools, or Box pools, you're probably familiar with this format from its Super Bowl popularity. Now you can create an NFL Squares pool for any game or set of games from the NFL season. Your members can pick their squares online, and view the completed grid - no need to pass around a sheet of paper!
The name of this type of pool comes from the 100 squares that comprise the pool's board. The board is a 10x10 grid of boxes where each row and column are assigned a number from 0 to 9. In offline NFL Squares, each square of the grid can be claimed by a pool member by writing his or her name in the box. At the end of each quarter of the NFL game, the last digit of both NFL teams' score is compared to the grid to determine a winner.
NFL Squares pools are very simple and don't require any football knowledge to participate. However, that doesn't mean that a member should just put his picks in any box. There is some strategy (albeit limited) to where you put your name on the grid, so pay attention!
RunYourPool.com makes the process of picking squares simple. Members simply login to the website and click the square(s) they want. You'll have no more issues with squares containing illegible names and members will be unable to pick more squares then your pool allows.
The grid below is an example of RunYourPool.com's NFL Squares. The grid shown represents a pool where a Pool Administrator has chosen to create random row and column numbers. Obviously, the grid shown is prior to the Administrator's generation of those numbers and represents what pool members would see during the picking process.
Pool members see the squares grid and all other pool members picks online, in real-time. The completed squares grid can also be printed out and distributed so members don't need to be near a computer to see who has won.
Add your company or organization logo to customize the look of your pool. For more information, see our Brand Your Pool page.
Every NFL Squares pool hosted at RunYourPool.com includes a free, private message board. Your pool's message board, accessible only to your pool members, is a great way to communicate with members who aren't lucky enough to join you for the NFL.
