7 Super Bowl Party Games To Play Along With the Big Game
Super Bowl party games are fun because they get everyone involved, not just the crazy football fans, but all family members and friends! (Here are some more ideas to throwing a great Super Bowl party this weekend.)Note to all crazy football fans: The game itself, that’s pretty much for you. Plus, you’ve had like 20 weeks of real football, so just relax and enjoy your re-immersion back into the real world!A lot of people want to play DFS Super Bowl games on sites like FanDuel. The problem, however, is that they don’t do DFS for individual games – that’s considered gambling. So we came up with several other ways you can get your Super Bowl Fantasy fix on, and still have fun with family and friends.
Try to figure out the scores at halftime and make an announcement as to who is winning!
7 Super Bowl Party Games To Play Along With the Big GameJust pick a couple of these games, and maybe buy a cheap prize, like some gift cards to a local restaurant or grocery chain, to hand out to the winners!
Play Super Bowl Fantasy ChallengePrint out these salaries, and ask everyone to pick one player from each tier, allowing them to fill out their Fantasy Football team. Use standard Fantasy scoring for offensive players and standard IDP scoring!

Play Super Bowl SquaresDraw a 10x10 table on posterboard, have everyone pay $1 to purchase one square ($5 for 5 squares, etc.), then have them put their names in any available squares on the board. Have someone pull out 0-9 numbers from a hat randomly, and write the numbers across the top, then pull the numbers again and write them down the side. The square that lines up with the last digit of both teams’ scores at the end of each quarter wins some money! Pay out 20-percent of the pot to the winner in the first, second and third quarters, then award 40-percent of the pot to the person with the final square at the end of the game. (With the above buy-ins, you would award $20 to the winner at the end of each of the first three quarters, and $40 for the final game score winner.)
Play Fantasy Football Prop BetsThis is a great one because it involves a ton of stuff before and during the game, and anyone can play. They don’t have to be super crazy football fans. Choose 10-15 great Super Bowl prop bets from this list, and print them out with the odds. Try to choose props that have multiple answers, or ones where the odds are relatively close to each other, like “Team To Score First in the Game” or “How Many Times Will Gisele Bundchen Be Shown On TV During the Broadcast?”
Play Super Bowl BingoI found this online – and it looks pretty fun and easy to play along with, especially for non-football fans. Print out their bingo cards, hand them out, and every time an event happens, someone gets to mark them on their board with a tiny Post-It note or something easily removable. First one to fill a line vertical, horizontal or diagonal across the middle, gets to call out “BINGO!” Give them a prize, and start a new game!
Play Super Bowl Commercials BingoSpeaking of Bingo, you can turn it into a game that is centered around the commercials. Print out these bingo cards and have people mark their cards when they see an actor/actress, brand or movie preview. Some of the stuff on these cards are things like Groupon, Coke, Olympics, M&Ms and Turbo Tax.
Play Super Bowl CharadesSplit the party into two teams. Use this quick list of a dozen fun Super Bowl-related charades your guests can act out for one point apiece:
- The Brady Bunch
- Deflated football
- Quarterback sack
- Touchdown celebration
- Halftime show
- Fourth down
- New England
- Four quarters
- Extra point
Play Super Bowl “Minute To Win It” GamesYou can either have these games be played by one person doing them one at a time, preferably well before the game starts, like when the four-hour pregame is going on, or you can have people do these head-to-head. These games are usually pretty funny, and they make for great home videos! Here’s an example of what they’ll be saying, “Remember that time Grandpa moved an Oreo cookie from his forehead, down his face and into his mouth without using his hands during Super Bowl LII? Let’s see that video! What an amazing party that was! The host was obviously a genius!”If you have some more great Super Bowl party games you think we should know about, tweet us @SportsGrid and let us know!
