The Super Bowl is the most-watched American event of the year, as both casual and hardcore NFL fans tune in for a variety of reasons.

But there are a ton of ways to make one of the best days of the year even more fun, so let's break down how to play some of the best Super Bowl party games.

In this article, we will cover Super Bowl Pick-a-Player.

Pick-a-Player Rules & Explanation

This is another simple game, but it's a fun one. Have all of the participants put a pre-determined entry fee into a hat (depending on how big you want your pot to be). You put all the names of the key players into the hat and pick them out blindly. Whoever's player is named MVP at the end of the Super Bowl wins the pot. 

While the most well-known players generally win the Super Bowl MVP award, you might want to consider adding "the field" (i.e. any player whose name wasn't written down) into the hat. This way, you can ensure that this game won't end in a tie.
