Super Bowl 49 is over. The New England Patriots are the champions after beating the Seattle Seahawks by a final score of 28-24. Now that the Lombardi Trophy has been handed out, it's also time to hand out the prize for the Super Bowl squares game at your party.
Whoever has the square with the Seahawks at 4 and the Patriots at 8 for the final score is the winner. Congratulations. Go collect your prize and treat everyone to another round with your earnings; it's the nice thing to do, depending on where you're at.
Super Bowl squares is the most basic of all the NFL-related fantasy football games and gambling angles, the one everyone in your house can play (though technically some states have rules) about who, when and where can make a numbered line graph on a piece of poster board and wager stakes on what combination of numbers are there.
For a quick refresher, the typical squares game has payouts at the end of each quarter, and some square masters like to up the payout for the halftime and final scores. There's even a strategy for playing this game, albeit not a very complex one.
