    I’m looking for 99 other BA’s to participate in Super Bowl Squares. 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 again this year 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.

    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. J
    3. Shipping window opens Monday, February 4th (pending assignments) and runs through February 15th.
    4. Out of 97 BA’s shipping beer to winners last year, 3 were added to the Bad Trader list. While this is a high success rate, I’m aiming for 100% this year. 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!

    Oh, and in case you want to drool over the 20+ boxes YaKnowBrady and Auslander received, or the 40+ boxes dashirey received (winner of 2 quarters), here is the hauls thread from last year. For context, keep in mind at that point we were dealing with the site transition and working with a few late shippers.

    Lots of incoming conversations, keep them coming. Remember to include your email address so that I can send you the invitation, hopefully by the end of the day today. One excited (overly confident?) BA has already sent his shipping address, haha.

    First 35...contact me privately with details if someone on this list should not be participating and I will follow up. BA's in red are provisionals with sponsor name in parenthesis. Don't worry if you contacted me and don't see your name on the list yet, I still have 20 or so messages to open.

    YaKnowBrady and Auslander each won 24 boxes and dashirey won 49 boxes. I remember Dane saying he got something like 18 boxes in one day. I would have to borrow a truck just to get all that home from the office.
