One of our Super Bowl traditions every year is to play bingo during the commercials with these free printable Super Bowl commercial bingo cards. It’s a fun way to get everyone involved, even people who may not be the biggest football fans! And Super Bowl bingo is definitely one of the most fun games out there! Just print out the cards, hand out to everyone, and enjoy the best commercials of the year!
Super Bowl Commercial Bingo
One of my all-time favorite Super Bowl party games to play during the year is Super Bowl commercial bingo. We started doing this three years ago, and it’s been a tradition ever since! And I know it’s been a big hit with readers at Super Bowl parties, so I keep making new printable cards every year.
I created printable bingo cards that have the names of brands and celebrities that are scheduled to appear in the 2018 Super Bowl commercials this year. Everything on the cards has been confirmed as of publish date on this post but if someone pulls out last minute, sorry! I tried to mix things up a bit more this year, so there are about 30 different options that could be on each card rather than all of the cards having the exact same options, hopefully that’ll make it a bit less likely for people to bingo at once.
If you want more generic cards that might work better for kids, these football bingo cards fit the bill. Do this football scavenger hunt for kids before the game and play football bingo during the game; the kids will be entertained until the timer runs out!
Super Bowl Bingo Instructions
You’d think that Super Bowl bingo would be pretty self-explanatory, but I still get a lot of questions, so here are some clarifying rules for playing! If you have more questions, feel free to leave comments, and I’ll do my best to answer. And honestly, it’s just a game so if you want to change things or make up your own rules, feel free!
Give everyone one of the Super Bowl bingo cards along with some markers. We love using things that are actually part of the commercials, so this year Skittles would probably be a good bet! Although those might get eaten, so you could definitely do something like Cheerios or uncooked beans instead. Or buy these bingo markers you can reuse year after year!
Determine a couple of things before the game and make sure the entire group knows you’ve decided:
- How many times can one person bingo? With large groups, I recommend once. With smaller groups, you could easily do 2-3 with small prizes.
- How many bingos will you play total or will you play until everyone bingos once?
- Once someone bingos, are they done playing or can they go for something like a blackout prize?
Once everyone has a card, the game is on.
If you see or hear something on your card during one of the commercials, cover it up! The key word is during the commercials – not during the game, halftime show, or the announcements – this is commercial bingo after all! Whoever covers five squares in a row (including the free football space) first calls out bingo and wins a prize! Five in a row can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
Super Bowl Bingo Fine Print
A brand name can only be covered when that brand is shown or said.
A celebrity can only be covered when that celebrity is shown or said.
Two squares can be covered during the same commercial as long as you see both the brand and the celebrity. For instance, Tiffany Haddish will be starring in the Groupon commercial. You can cover up both Tiffany and Groupon when you see that commercial.
Super Bowl Bingo Prize Ideas
Since it’s bingo and not a big group thing like these Super Bowl minute to win it games, you can go a little more expensive on the prize. So instead of a bag of candy for instance, a gift card. I’ve put down a handful of ideas that would be great bingo prizes, ranging from more expensive to not so expensive.
- Gift card to a great place to watch games like Buffalo Wild Wings or any of these others
- A popcorn bowl full of prizes from the Super Bowl advertisers – Skittles, Doritos, etc.
- Football stadium chips and dips serving set (this is just kind of cool)
- Football socks (just bought these for my husband!)
- A mini or full size football
- A customized football
- Team memorabilia from their favorite NFL team
- Adverteasing – an awesome sounding board game
- A custom football tumbler (perfect for the big game!)
- Inflatable Football game (with a mini football)
- Invincible or any other football movie
Print Out Your 2018 Super Bowl Cards
Before the party, all you need to do is print out the PDF document below, cut them into four, and pass out a the party. I’ve created a set of 80 Super Bowl bingo cards. There are twenty cards that are green and an additional 60 cards that are white since I had a number of people concerned about the amount of ink it would take to print out 80+ green cards! If you’ve already downloaded the 20 I had included previously, they are the same green ones as in this new 80 card bundle.
