The show must go on: A.I. to replace players for tonight’s postponed NFL game on Super Squares platform

October 15, 2020

More than $40,000 in prizes has already been awarded to players across the U.S. since the NFL season began.

TAMPA, Fla. – As millions of Americans were disappointed to learn that Thursday Night Football had been postponed by the NFL, a new live mobile game show is working to make the scheduled game between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs still happen tonight, albeit, with artificial intelligence playing the game in lieu of real players.

Super Squares, the free family-friendly game show app where anyone 18 years of age or older can compete against friends, family members and celebrities for the chance to win real cash and prizes, rolled out last month in time for the NFL season. But, in order for the mobile game show to be played the way it was designed, there would normally be a live game on TV.

“As a result of tonight’s postponed game, we looked at different options to still host our game as scheduled. We saw an opportunity to see how our app would work if the  football game was played online using computers, instead,” said Frank Maggio, the inventor of Super Squares® and CEO of React. “We thought, ‘What better than Madden 21® to take the place of real players?’, and to commemorate the event, we’re giving away a rare John Madden lithograph from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

As a result, the simulated game will air on the Super Squares Twitch channel at 8:30 p.m. EDT. The game will be viewable for free from PC’s and mobile devices, the Twitch app, and at

To make things even more interesting, viewers of the simulation, viewable only on Twitch, will be able to play the Super Squares® game show on their mobile devices, to gain access to over $240,000 in prizes.  Gift cards from national sponsors including the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Peatos® snacks are available for prizes, as well as a $20,000 credit towards a Polaris® power sport product on November 2nd. A $100,000 jackpot is available to any player who score a Perfect Game.

“This is a great opportunity for someone looking to learn how to play Super Squares,” said Maggio. “Our host and special guest streamer, Action Jaxon, will walk first time players through it prior to the simulated game beginning and we will be answering questions, live, though it is pretty intuitive for most players.”

The game will be hosted by Twitch channel host, Jonathan Blevins. Under the leadership of React’s Commissioner, Super Bowl Champion Matt Birk, the young channel has already garnered a reputation for attracting nationally recognized athletes and celebrities to their pre-game shows.  Recent guests have included NFL Hall of Fame players Morten Andersen and Brian Urlacher, Pro Bowl / Super Bowl standouts Tom Crabtree and Jared Allen, and popular streamers including Tyler “Ninja” and Chris “Invictus” Blevins.

Since mid September, more than $40,000 has already been awarded, with a much larger prize announcement scheduled for later this month.
