    Does drinking beer go before 3, after 1, or interval-ed between each step?

    Question: Assuming we end up with four distinct winners in this thing, each winner would receive 24 boxes-o-beer? That is, everyone who loses sends to only one of the four winners, right? And that split of boxes would be random?

    That is correct and correct. I would imagine that the op would assign targets.

    Just an FYI - I think when I sent a follow-up BM I got added twice to the list (50&67). I am happy to be responsible for both, but if someone else got left out and wanted the extra that would be great too. Let me know.

    I'll apologize to Steve in advance if I'm stepping on toes, but I know he's probably busy setting things up - which can take some time - so I'll go ahead and answer some of the questions.

    Once Steve is able to finalize all of the settings on footballpot.com and enter all 99 email addresses in the "invite" field, we'll get an emailed invitation to pick our square. I know that doesn't directly answer your question but gives you an idea of why it doesn't happen quickly.

    Yes, 24 boxes of beer to 4 distinct winners. Last year we had 49 boxes to 1 person and 24 each to two others. For the squares I run, I allow a few requests (i.e. Winner A is my buddy and lives near me, please assign me to him so I can avoid paying for shipping) but I make it clear these are at my discretion. It would be impossible to honor requests from 99 participants so as much as possible I tried to spread it out geographically so the winners were getting boxes from all over the place. That's how I do my squares, it's completely up to Steve how he decides to run his.

    Good catch Hindsight. I dumped the list in Excel and verified this is the only duplicate. The website's settings only allow one square per person invited.

    This may work out well for you, but he may also have a waiting list of participants ahead of you who sent him their information. I know I had 3-4 alternates before he started 2.0.

    We're ready to pick squares. I just sent the invite via email. Steps to choose your square:

    1) Choose your icon
    2) Click on the square you want
    3) **IMPORTANT** Lock your square

    The square you choose isn't yours until step 3 has been done.

    Once all 100 squares are locked, the numbers will be randomly assigned. Good Luck. -Steve

    Got your email...signed into footballpot.com but there's nothing there. When I go to join a pot it's asking for a code. Am I doing something wrong? lol

    Sorry, first time running a game I thought the details would be included in my first email. A second email/invite went out with the details on how to join the pot.

    Guys, if you just create an account on footballpot.com with the same email you sent in the BM, it should show up automatically. Did for me anyway.
