Play the “Bigger Game” During The Big Game
There’s a bigger game at stake during the Big Game on Sunday. The advertising game. With sponsors spending billions of dollars pre, post and during the game and consumers wondering what outlandish entertainment the branding game has in store. And now, statistics are proving what we’ve always known to be true.
39% of people prefer the advertising to the Super Bowl game. Of those, 64% said they talk about the ads the next day.
At Halo, we play ad games every day but this one’s for you to play.
How To Play BIG GAME ADVERTISING BINGO.
1. Print out the Bingo-style game boards where numbers are replaced by the advertisers (and in some cases, potential advertisements). The center square, the Halo logo, is played as a free space. Share them with your friends, and you’re ready to play.
2. When one of the ads on your board is televised before, during or after the game, cross it off.
3. The first person to get five in a row (vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) wins.
Of course, you’re welcome to create your own unique ways to play.
WARNING: This may prevent more conventional use of commercial breaks for eating, calling home or relieving oneself.
