Football Charades  Ingredients:
  • Pen 
  • Paper
  • Bowl
To Play:
  • Split into two teams. On pieces of paper, write down football related words, such as helmet, cheerleader, touchdown, or even players, mascot and coaches names. You can also include food items such as chips, salsa and wings.
  • Put the pieces of paper in the bowl.
  • Have one team member pick from the bowl and act out the word on the paper. The other players on the actor’s team have to guess the word. The time limit should be 1 or 2 minutes per word.
  • Once the team guesses the word or the time runs out, the charades continue with the opposing team.
  • The winner is the team with the most correct guesses.
Betting Squares Ingredients:
  • Poster Board and Markers
  • Bowl
To Play:
  1. Set up a 10x10 grid on the poster board and write one team on the top. The other team is on the side.
  2. Sell each square on the grid for a set amount of money. Play big or small.
  3. Numbers 0-9 are assigned randomly across the rows and down the columns after bets are places and squares are bought. (Draw out of a bowl for the order of numbers for each row and column)
  4. The numbers beside each team name represent the last digit in the score for that team. For example, if the score were "Team A: 14- Team B: 3", then whoever's name is in the square under the "4" of the Team A and the "3" of Team B would win.
With these tips and tricks you will have a flavor-tastic party, that will leave guests feeling like they just won the Superbowl of gatherings. Enter the SUNSET Flavor Bowl™ Sweepstakes! Win up to $5,000 worth of amazing prizes!
