When it comes to entertaining guests, the game on TV will do that job for you.
However, if you are looking for a fun game in between quarters or want to keep the kids entertained, a game of cornhole or throwing around a football is a great way to keep guests engaged and active during the game.

By preplanning and working ahead, you can enjoy the time with your guests (and some chicken wings while you’re at it) and enjoy the game. Grab your chips and cocktails and get ready to enjoy the Super Bowl as it's supposed to be enjoyed—surrounded by people you love sharing comradery and healthy competition.
