3: Get a Game Ready

We complain about commercials for 99.9% of the year, but when the Super Bowl comes around, we take our bathroom breaks during the game and save our viewing time for the commercials. So make sure and have some fun with it by planning some group games.

a) Commercial BINGO. Generate your own BINGO cards at this website with slots for different commericals you might see from the 2013 ad list. Make sure you have a prize for the winner!

b) Quiz your friends with a Super Bowl trivia game. Test yourself with this online version and get more question ideas here.
