The best way to enjoy every game and never worry about a bracket busted is an NCAA Square. Only 100 squares are made available at $20 each and must be purchased with a regular pool entry. Your square is good for every single game of the tournament and can win you cash prizes and free pool entries.

The first set of squares have sold out and for the first time, a second set of 100 has been made available.
