Whether you’re an avid football fan or have barely watched a game all season, there’s a good chance you’ll be tuning into the Super Bowl this year. One of the most anticipated sports events each year, the Super Bowl is jam-packed with entertainment — from the athletic competition to the memorable commercials and energizing halftime performances from some of the biggest names in music. The only thing that can make Super Bowl Sunday even more fun is watching with family and friends, preferably with fun Super Bowl party games and activities.

Organizing games for your Super Bowl party is a failsafe way to keep the event lively and enjoyable for all. Especially if you have kids in attendance, it’s essential to have some structured activities to occupy anyone who can’t sit through several hours of football on TV. This list includes a variety of off-screen games that everyone can participate in, from doughnuts on a string, to backyard flag football and football-themed cornhole. There are also a few options that will give sports buffs a chance to test their knowledge, such as trivia, mascot matching, and football word scrambles. By incorporating any of these into your celebration, you’re sure to score major hosting points. Just don’t forget the Super Bowl snacks!
