Super Bowl Party Poker Game
Are you hosting a Super Bowl Party? Want to put a little money on the game with your friends, but tired of the traditional “Super Bowl Squares”? Gridiron Experts has a Super Bowl party poker game that is fun for all, and we’d love to share it with you.
This game can be customized to playing for fun, drinks, or some big bucks.
What you’ll need: A deck of cards (maybe two decks if you have more than 8 people playing). Make sure you pick a deck that has room to write on the cards.
Object of the Game: To score the most points from kickoff to the last play of the game.
Prep work: You’ll need to do a little work before you can play, but it’s worth it. Find a deck of cards that has room to write on each card. Then assign each card with a different situation that could happen during the game. This game is totally customizable, you can add or replace the suggested actions from the example below.
Rules: Every person is dealt 5 cards. Each time the scenario on the player’s card happens in the game, he or she calls it out and places the card face up on the table. That player scores their points and picks up another card from the pile.
At a commercial break, all scored cards are picked up and added back into the pile. The deck is then shuffled. From there, all players can “draw” (replace) up to 3 new cards from the 5 in their hand.

|King- Vernon Davis 10+ yards (2 points)||King- Vernon Davis TD (6 points)||King- Dennis Pitta 10+ yards (2 points)||King- Dennis Pitta TD (6 points)|
*Gold Digger Card- This is exactly what it sounds like: when a player calls out that they have a card that represents something that happened on the field, the Gold Digger card can be used to steal half their points. If multiple people call out cards from an event that happened on the field (ie: passing TD, player A has the QB and player B has the WR) the Gold Digger can only pick one player to take half their points from, unless he/she has two Gold Digger cards. A player can hold onto the Gold Digger card for as long as he or she wants to before playing it.
- Multiple cards can be played at once, ie: Flacco 40 yard TD pass to Boldin ( 4 cards, 15 points using chart from above).
- A player has until the next snap in the game to play their card before it’s too late, if they don’t call it out the points are not awarded.
- For best results, assign one player as Dealer and one player as Score Keeper.
