Buzzwords / Take Props
Make sure you wait as long as possible to ensure everyone who wants in can play. We like to carry it over if those numbers hit before the end of the game, and give it to the party host if they hit at the end. You can also offer to sell those additional squares to increase the pot. In the example below, 10 people bought into the pool, which means each writes their name in 10 random boxes. After you have all of the names filled in, put the numbers 0 through 9 on small pieces of paper into a hat.
Have someone pick them out one by one. Write those numbers as they are picked across the top squares in order. Repeat for the squares down the left side of the board.
The rules of the game are simple. If the Patriots win the game , STUCK would win the pot, since his name is in the square that coincides with the Patriots 4 down the side and the Eagles 0 on top.
You can choose to split the pot by quarter, half or just do winner takes all at the end. I hope you avoid the 9! You need to have a skill-based Super Bowl betting game where the person who gets the most questions right wins the pot.
As a result, I like to assign the highest buy-in to this game, but know your audience. You can create your own questions, such as…. Also, mix it up with entertainment and sports if you have a bigger crowd. I have found using questions with varying point values works best. We like to divide this up into quarters to increase the excitement. The person holding the cup at the end of the first and third quarter takes a small amount out.
The person at the end of each half gets a bigger payout. Divide it up however you see fit, but be prepared for the late half, meaningless Hail Mary interception cup switch. You can also use a football instead of a cup. However, watch out for your token drunk friend who is losing all of his bets. If you want to make the game even more interesting, you can add a rule that every player must hold on to the cup or ball at all times when in possession.
If someone gets caught putting it down, the cup changes hands. For those who still need more party action, you can also do an MVP draw. This usually means you rendered a different component type or props on the client from the one on the server, or your render methods are impure.
React cannot handle this case due to cross-browser quirks by rendering at the document root. You should look for environment dependent code in your components and ensure the props are the same client and server side: This generally means that you are using server rendering and the markup generated on the server was not what the client was expecting.
React injected new markup to compensate which works but you have lost many of the benefits of server rendering. Instead, figure out why the markup being generated is different on the client or server: We can't do this without using server rendering due to cross-browser quirks. The person with the square would win the prize. Having winners after each quarter will keep everyone involved throughout the game.

Another thing you can do is put together a wager sheet for you and all of your party guests. Have it include as many prop bets or wagers as you would like. You can set an amount for guests to pay to play and let the winner of the most bets on the sheet take the pot. We will even have the results for you so you can grade your pool shortly after the game is over.
