10 Line March Madness Squares
The 10 Line March Madness Squares are perfect for a small number of people. One 10 box grid can be used for every game of the tournament(creating 63 different winners) or for any individual game. This pool is similar to our March Madness Squares with 100 boxes. The print-out below gives you the option to run 3 different pools on one page. If you prefer you can print a single 10 line game here. To run this pool, have the participants write their name on the line or lines of their choice. Once the 10 lines are filled up you will randomly draw the numbers 0-9 placing them in the boxes on the grid. Full instructions on running this pool are available at the bottom of this page.

How to run a 10 Line March Madness Square Pool
Winning the Pool
There are a couple of different ways to run this pool. The first is to have a winning square for every single game of the tournament, this would create 63 or 67 different winners, depending on if you will be using the play-in games. To determine a winning square, you will add the final score of both teams, and then use the last digit of that number.
Example: The final score is Kansas 101 and Duke 95. Add 101 and 95 to get 196, the person with their name beside the number 6(last digit of 196) would win.
So, you would do this for every final score of the tournament. Remember the print-out from above has 3 separate pools on one sheet.
The second way to use these squares is to just use them for any single game of the tournament. For this method you can have two winners, by using the halftime score and the final score. The winning squares will still be determined by totaling the scores together and using the last digit. To add additional winners you can play the square above and below the winning square are also winners.
