for the most part the set up of the game is the same the only difference is how one might buy the squares and the pay out of the pool of cash will differ . . .
but the bottom line you make a grid of boxes (squares) which is 10 x 10 or 100 total boxes . . . along the top you label on team and on the side you label another team . . . the top team relates to the columns and the side team to the rows . . .
then each colunm is given an number and the same with each row, from 0 to 9 . . . to makes things easy the first column 0, second col is 1 and so on till the last one is 9 , and the rows are down the same way with the top row being labeled 0 and bottom one 9 . . .
so the upper left box will be column "0" and row "0" the upper right box would be column "9" row "0" and these are the corresponding numbers for each team . . .
so say for example you pool is set up like above . . . and the top team (who has the column numbers) is the 49ers and the left team is the Ravens (who has the row numbers) . . . if you have the upper right box then you would have a box that would be column "9" and row "0" and so it would be 49ers "9" and Ravens "0"
now these two numbers signify the last number in their score . . . so for teh 49ers it would be "9" or 9, 19, 29, 39, 49 and so on, and for the Ravens it would be "0" . . . so 0, 10, 20, 30, and so on . . .
now comes how does your pool distribute the money, if it is $5 per square, we would have $500 in the pool and you pool might divide the money 100 per qtr for the first three quarter and 200 for the last . . . so there are four snap shots in which the money is paid out and is at the end of each qtr . . . so if your square is matching the same numbers at the end of any quarter you will win that payout . . .
or bottom line if at the end of any qtr the 49ers score ends in a 9 AND the Ravens score ends in a 0 you win . . . you need both to match and with the respective team . . .
i know this is long but i hope it helps , , , much easier to explain it in person with a 100 square matrix . . .
