Square Pool Contest

What is a Square Pool?

Square Pools or just "Squares" as they are commonly referred to are perhaps the most recognized form of sports contest and by far the easiest to run for large groups on specific events for various types of sports.

A square pool is a 10x10 grid in which participants select random squares from the grid.  To select your squares you simple click on it and your contest user name will be displayed on the square for all other contest participants to see.  The contest manager has the option to allow from between 1 - 99 picks per player depending on their preferences.  For example, if there were 10 people in your square pool then you would set your max picks to "10" when creating your pool. If there were 100 then the max picks would be set to "1".  

Each team will be assigned to either the X or Y axis of the grid designated by the Contest Manager or will be randomly assigned by our system if he or she so chooses.  Upon the actual game starting, the numbers 0 - 9 will be randomly assigned to each row of each axis.  This will be the grid of numbers used to determine winners.

How are Winners Determined?

Contest General provides you the option to choose which quarters,periods, or innings you would like to include in the scoring of your pool.  For example, in football you could choose to use the 1st quarter, 3rd quarter and Final for your scoring which presents a possible 3 winners in your pool.  After the game begins the square pool will lock, from here winners will be determined by the last digit in each teams square for that designated period.  For example:

You are playing in a football square pool based on the game Dallas vs Detroit

Your square is 1 on the Dallas X axis (horizontal row) and 7 on the Detroit Y axis (vertical row).  This would give you the square 1,7.  The final game score is Dallas 21, Detroit 17 your square would hit and you would win because the last number in their respective scores lines up with your square.
