This bring to mine an idea I had a couple of days back. I haven't seen the Football pool game being done using bitcoins.

For those who don't know the game. It is a 10 by 10 grid of squares. Each persons buys one or more squares for a standard price. Sometimes a dollar. Often a quarter. Normally, all 100 squares must be sold before the game. Each person chooses they squares they want from among those remaining. The are all arbitrary at this point so none can be known better than others.

After all are sold, a random process is used to assign the numbers 0-9 to the horizontal and vertical axis. The horizontal represents the low order digit of one teams score. The vertical represents the low order digit of the other team.

At the end of each game quarter. The square owner who matches the digits of the score is awarded 25% of the pool.

I doubt the game generalizes to low scoring games like the other world football/american soccer.
