Greetings CrimsonAti Bama Fans!
It's time for Bama's 18th National Championship! We completely filled The Big Board squares at past watch parties (see below) and raised some much needed scholarship funds! We are so grateful for everyone's support, so why not do it again for the National Championship game with Clemson? Squares are only $5 or five squares for $20. The actual Big Board game will be played at our Alabama vs. Clemson Watch Party. You don’t have to be present to win, however we’d love to see you at March First Brewing on Monday, January 7th, at 8:00 pm. Winners are announced after every quarter. If we fill up the Board, we meet our scholarship goal and the max amount will be given to the winners after every quarter. First come first serve. If there is no winner after each quarter, the winnings will go to the scholarship fund.
When the game begins we will shuffle 10 playing cards. Ace (1) through 10 (Acts as 0). The cards will be dealt to each row, assigning a number value (0-9) to each row at random. The process is completed for each column. After the rows and columns are assigned random values, players at the watch party may buy remaining empty squares for $20 after the 1st quarter. You may buy 'rebuy' only between quarters. At the end of each quarter, the winning square is determined by the last digit of each teams total score.
EXAMPLE: At the end of the second quarter, the total score is Alabama (Always Columns) 17, Clemson (Always Rows) 3. The winner would be the 7th Column, 3rd Row. The owner of that square gets 25% of the pot allowed for that quarter. If all 100 squares are sold before the game, the total pot would be $125 (if everyone bought $5 squares). Keep in mind, most people take advantage of the 5 for $20 deal. Half of each square sold goes to the Scholarship Fund. The process is repeated each quarter, giving 25% of the available pot to the owner of the winning square. Any single square may win multiple quarters. Just before kickoff, we will take a photo of the Big Board so you'll know the location(s) of your square. The photo will be posted at our Watch Party Fans Facebook group, so if you haven't joined, you can here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/watchpartyfans/
