How to use it

I’m a big advocate of a three-tab spreadsheet, and this Super Bowl Squares template is no exception.

Input Tab – There are three sections to update in this tab.

Team Names – I filled it in for you this time
Boxes – Names of all your friends participating
Rules – Free Form Area for you to enter the rules for your Super Bowl Squares Pool

Output Tab – This Carries over the information from your input and gets it ready for the calculation

Paste and Print – This is the final Doc. Select Everything boxed on the first page and paste values starting in Block A1. If you don’t select “Paste Values” the spreadsheet is doomed.

Step 1 – Get all your friends to put their names in the boxes. Or one greedy friend to fill out 50 It’s totally printable.

Names –

Step 2 – Once all your friends are filled in, put your cursor in the Red Square and press the delete key. Numbers along the grid will all recalculate at this point.

How it Works

The Calculation of the Super Bowl Squares pool relies on two Excel formulas working together.

RAND

RANK

Rand creates a Randomly Generated number between 0 and 1. Then Rank assigns a value (1-10) based on the order smallest to largest.

Together they lay the basis for a badass Super bowl Squares template. One Important Note, these are considered volatile formulas. Every time you update ANYTHING in the spreadsheet, these formulas change and recalculate the blocks.

That’s why the Paste n Print exists. You paste the values there, and they are locked down.

I hope you enjoy the game or enjoy playing around with this spreadsheet. It should present a faster and cleaner way to fill all those squares.

But, if you trust Gretchen to pull the tabs out of a lunch bag, you can still do that.
