    First off, big thanks to Ben (brees6221) for getting me started and allowing me to plagiarize his post. Since his Super Bowl Squares LIF filled up so fast and there seems to be interest from those who missed out, I’m going to start a second one, Super Bowl XLVII Squares 2.0. I’m not sure it’ll fill up as fast as brees6221’s, but I hope to get to 100 participants. If it looks like we won’t get to 100, I’ll limit it to 25 or 50. Below are the details...Spread the word.

    I’m looking for 99 other BA’s to participate in Super Bowl Squares 2.0. If you’re not familiar with how this works, each person is assigned one square in a 10x10 grid. Once the grid is filled with names, numbers are randomly assigned. The number represents the last digit of the score at the end of each quarter.

    Ex. End of 1st quarter score is AFC team 13, NFC team 7. The name in the box where AFC 3 and NFC 7 intersect wins the 1st quarter prize.

    We will be using footballpot.com, so you must register on that website to play. Your user ID needs to be the same as your BA name, up to the character limit.

    Details
    1. Open to BA’s in the lower 48 US states only
    2. Non-winning BA’s agree to ship at minimum 44oz. of wants, locals, or otherwise high quality beer to one of the winners, to be assigned after the game. There is no limit to the amount you can send.
    3. Shipping window opens Monday, February 4th (pending assignments) and runs through February 15th.
    4. To participate you must have an established trade history or a sponsor who does. Your sponsor agrees to ship a box if you fail to do so.
    5. Winners are the squares matching the last digit of the score at the end of each quarter, No overtime.

    To join, contact me via private conversation with an email address where I can send the invitation from footballpot.com. This must be the same email address you used to register on that website. Also, remember to make your user ID there as close as possible to your BA name. I will respond with a link to the squares. You may not be able to choose a square right away, just be patient and I will post when that can be done.

    IMPORTANT: I will periodically post and update a list of participants in this thread. If you see the name of a BA who you feel should not participate because they have failed to come through on past trades, are on the bad trader list or for any other reason, please contact me immediately. I will make the final call but I need help from everyone with such a large group of participants.

    If I forgot anything or if there are any questions please let me know – GOOD LUCK!

    Duplicates from Super Bowl squares #1 allowed?

    Maybe after like a one-week grace period?

    Are you telling me I don't qualify? Just asking after your post "off and running." Let me know. Pretty sure I have the prerequisites to participate but wanted to know if you had me out. TY for doing this regardless.

    Cheers

    Update. As of now we have 43 players. It's still early and I hope to get to 100, but If we don't get to 100, we'll play with the first 50 and each person will pick two squares. Here is the list so far:
