    So I am in process of running some super bowl pools and I am surprised at how many people lately are looking at me like I a am crazy when I ask if they want to buy in. I have always played in Super Bowl Pools since I was a young boy and I think they are a lot of fun. I thought almost everyone plays in them but I guess I was wrong.

    I even have a free pool going
    Free= this is for our company winner gets $250 (when I went to have people sign up for free so many people did not know what I was talking about)

    I am having some other low stakes Pools going and am having problems filling. I thought this would be easy to fill.

    So do you play in Pools? Anything crazy you have seen or been involved in?

    My dad tells me stories of $10k pool back in the day, winner take all. I don’t know if I believe that is real, but if so must have been insane.

    I assume you are talking about buying squares on a board. I love to gamble, so I am very familiar. They are popular around me. I don't play high stakes. Just up to $100 per square. The more expensive ones usually pay a little if you are touching a winning square or have the reverse numbers. Adds fun to watching the game.

    Man who holds the money? Does the winner just get a briefcase with a million bucks in it?

    I guess I have wrong friends

    The best numbers are 0,3 and 7. Followed by 4 , 6 and 9. Worst are 1,2,5,8. You pretty much know what your chances are once you learn what numbers you draw. I always got crappy numbers and never won. There was one Super Bowl where there was no scoring in the second quarter and the numbers in the 4th were the same as the 1st. Someone won 3 quarters. Would of been 2004-2006. One of those.

    The two point conversion has changed this somewhat. Before the implementation of the two point conversion, is you had a 5 of a 2 you were in tough shape.
