Join a Game
From a list of available pro games, you’ll select a “Current” game. Remember – you may only join ONE game per Game Show hour. If more than one football game starts during the 1:00 PM ET hour, be certain to select the one you intent to play.
You’re automatically placed in a Game Group of up to 24 others who are “Checking In” around the same time. These are players who you’ll be competing against all Game Show. If you finish first in your Game Group, you may be eligible for a valuable prize.
It’s that easy to join!
Now, it’s time to start your first Game Break.
Remember – ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION to the game and to the Sponsors’ advertisements, logos, and even prize details.

If you’ve created or joined a SkyBox, you’ll see tabs to enter and mingle with players who also joined. And who can resist watching the “Perfect Super Square” move in the app, whenever there’s a score or major stat change? But all you REALLY need to do is to ENJOY THE GAME. Plus, it conserves batteries, so feel free to put Super Squares™ in the background. As long as notifications are “on,” we’ll notify you when to Check In to re-enter the Game Show.
Here’s a look at what you’ll see in between Game Breaks:
At the end of each quarter, there’s a new Game Break. Enter the Game Show within 3* minutes to:

Square Up to receive your next randomly generated Super Square and four score combos.
That’s it – the Super Squares™ app does the rest.

A Deeper Dive
So, you want to become a Super Squares™ savant, eh? We can’t blame you – there’s never been a game show as rewarding to play and win, and the key to winning is paying attention. That includes paying attention to this “DEEPER DIVE” section. Good choice!
There are three ways to earn and post points with Super Squares™: (A) Score Combo points from matching Partial (3 points) or Perfect (7 points) Square combos, (2) REACT to requests to rate commercials (1 point per rating, regardless if 1, 2, or 3 stars), and to Quiz Question points (2 points for each correct answer), and (3) up to 3 Tie-Breaker Points (maximum 1 per Tie-Breaker response). The total number of Game Show points may vary from sport to sport and even game to game, as we may add bonus “Quick Quizzes” from time to time. (Quick Quizzes earn 2 points for each correct response, or any response to a survey or offer question.)
Here’s what you need to know about each, to really master Super Squares™:
Attention – The Key to Earning Game Show Points
Since Super Squares™ are assigned at random, Lady Luck certainly plays a part in Super Squares™. But without Checking In during the next Game Break, you may actually earn NO Game Show Points from your Super Square! You’ll also find that most winners climb the leaderboard because they “React” correctly every Game Break. After all, it’s all about REACTING to prove you’ve paid attention.
Each Game Break, you will be asked to rate each Mobile TV commercial to earn 1 Game Show Point, and then you’ll be served 2 Quiz Questions about the Sponsor’s ads inside of the Super Squares™ App. You will claim 2 Game Show Point for every correct answer you select in less than 20 seconds. Game Breaks at the end of a quarter (or end of game) also contain 2 Quiz Questions about the preceding quarter’s most important plays, scoring, and game stats.
To see how many Game Show Points you’ve earned from ratings, and correctly answered Quiz Questions, and to EARN the points from your Super Square (if any), you MUST Check-In during the next Game Break; otherwise, you will forfeit any points from your Super Square. Gone. Bye Bye.
SO DON’T FORGET – Always Check In on time. Fail to Check-In and you’ll forfeit all of your Game Show points from matching Super Squares, and you’ll also miss the chance to earn more Game Show points by REACTING.
TO CLAIM A PERFECT SUPER SQUARE requires that you a) Possess the Super Square that contains the Perfect Score Combo at the end of the quarter – AND – b) Check In NEXT Game Break to post the points to your Game Group Leaderboard.
Matching Super Squares™ to Game Scores:
If you’ve played football squares on paper, you already understand how to match a Score Combo to the football game score. But just in case, let’s recap: A Score Combo consists of two digits (like 0,9), which you will compare to the last digit of the score of each team. The “left digit” corresponds to the team on the left, and the “right digit” to the team on the right.
So, in this example, where the score is Left Team 3, Right Team 9, the perfect Score Combo is 3,9 (which is one of the four Score Combos within Super Square “S”):
In the example above, you control Super Square J, with 4 Score Combos 5,4 5,9, 0,4 and 0,9. You’ll notice that 2 of your 4 Score Combo squares with a “9” are raised and have stars – this indicates that as of right now, your Super Square J has 2 Score Combos that are partially correct. Why is that important? Because a “Partial” Score Combo can earn 3 Game Show Points. Plus, a Perfect Score Combo may earn 7 Game Show Points.
To illustrate further, let’s assume the score at the end of the quarter is 10 – 9. Now, your Super Square J contains the Perfect Score Combo – as well as two Partial Square Combos:
How do you EARN all possible Game Show Points from a Partial or Perfect Score Combo? Easy – Be sure to Check In on time during the next Game Break.
(Game Tip: In fact, 9 out of 25 Super Squares™ – over 30% – contain 2 Partial Score Combos, with 6 Game Show Points, at any given time. And, 1 out of 25 Super Squares™ – 4% – contain the Perfect Score Combo plus 2 Partial Score Combos, worth up to 13 Game Show Points. A Partial or Perfect Super Square can dramatically change your Super Squares™ Game Show score, so KEEP PLAYING!)
Tie-Breaker Predictions – Small points, big difference
Checking In before kickoff doesn’t just insure you’re “in the game” before the first Game Break window closes, it also means you’ll be able to claim points from predicting the outcome of the game. The predictions you make before kickoff can earn up to 3 important Game Show points – which you will see when you post your Final Game Show Score at the end of the game.
3 points doesn’t sound like a lot, but with thousands or even millions of players in the game, just a fraction of a point can and usually does make the difference in Super Squares™.
The three Prediction Questions you will be asked before every football game are generally the same, so do your homework, and be prepared to predict the final score, the team and yards with the longest play from scrimmage, and the total offensive yards for both teams. Classics games may present different prediction questions that may include events in the repeat broadcast, and even predictions as to the players of the Game Show.
Tie-Breaker Points are based upon your “Percentile Rank” when compared to the eventual outcome of the Football Game. Percentile Ranks for each Tie-Breaker Question is based on a proprietary algorithm that increases your score the closer you are to the final result.
Tie-Breaker points end in 4 digits after the decimal point. They make only a fraction of a difference – literally – but that fraction is often where Overall Leaderboard prizes and even Grand Prize winners are determined.
To reveal your Tie-Breaker Points, remember to Check-In during the final Game Break, where your Percentile Rank is revealed. You WILL receive Tie Breaker Points even if you do NOT Check In during the final Game Break.
Lastly, here are some details on how the Percentile Ranks work:
When ranking predictions tied to the final score of a Football Game, the number of points away from the actual score for each team are added together. For example, if the prediction is Home 21, Away 18, and the actual result is Home 27, Away 14, the prediction would have missed the correct outcome by 6 + 4 = 10 points.
When ranking predictions that require a selection of one of two teams, as well as a number of points or yards, all predictions that select the wrong team will score zero (0) Tie Breaker points. Only predictions that select the correct team(s) are eligible to be ranked and to receive points. For example, if the prediction is that the Home team will have the longest play from scrimmage, predicting 34 yards, and instead, the Away team posts the longest play from scrimmage, for 30 yards, the Participant will receive no Tie-Breaker Points, despite having missed by only 4 yards. (Note: If both teams have the identical distance, both team selections will be correct).
The most Tie-Breaker Points that can be earned in a single game is 3.0000.
Close Out Your Game Show to Reveal and Post a Score
You’ve reached the one yard line – Checking In early, and on time for every Game Break. But to post your maximum Game Show score, you need to finish the game, and post your Final Game Show Score.
Be sure to Check In during the Final Game Break; there are 2 final commercials to watch and rate, 4 more Quiz Questions to answer, and those 10 points are vital. Sure, any prizes or Grand Prize entries won from matching a Perfect Super Square in a Game break remain yours. But to maximize your Game Show score, Check In during the Final Game Break.
NOTE: The final Game Break is referred to as the “Post-game Break.” It takes place at the end of the sporting event. So, if a football or basketball game goes into overtime, a hockey game into overtime or a shootout, or a baseball game into extra innings, the final Game Break will not occur until the official end of the event.
Super Squares™ Super Tips:
- Wear earbuds or headphones. Our host, game announcers, and advertisers all have something to say. You’ll want to hear it – but your friends might not! If you’re competing in a crowd, be smart – and courteous.
- Check In and Square Up before the event starts. You’ll usually have from midnight (or before) to the start of the event to Check In. Do it. Your 3 Tie Breaker Predictions MUST be on the books before kickoff, tip off, puck drop, green flag, or first pitch – or your Predictions won’t count.
- Check-In. Every time and on-time. Starting to see a pattern here? You react, play quizzes and “claim” Super Squares™ in one Game Break, but you need to Check-In next Game Break to earn them and post them.
- Pay attention to what’s important. There’s a lot to watch in a sporting event and our Sponsor’s commercials may seem to be full of info, too. Relax – as long as you’re paying attention, the answers won’t be too hard to recall!
- Don’t sweat the Score Combos. Tracking the 4 Score Combo’s inside your Super Square takes getting used to – but the game does it for you. Relax!
- Don’t quit – even if you start late. Missing a Game Break may hurt your score, but a Perfect Super Square (and 19-26 points) may be one Game Break away. You can join a Game Show late, and even miss a Check-In or two, and still win!
- Post your Final Score. It’s like getting to the one yard line and then taking a nap. Not a good idea. Cross the goal line, and maximize your Game Show Score by Checking In during the final Game Break.
