How to make a tournament bracket for your office wall
When March rolls around, basketball fever sets in. Many offices like to make a bracket to keep up with all the games and see who can do the best job of predicting the winners of each match-up.
If you've got the wall space (and permission), making a bracket on your office wall is a great way for everyone to collaborate on something that's not strictly work-related. For best wall hang, use a smooth surface and position the adhesive stripes horizontally. Cleaning and conditioning products may affect adhesion.
What you'll need:
64 – 2" x 2"Post-it® Full Adhesive Super Sticky Notes, 32 – 3" x 3" Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, 8 – 11" x 11" yellow Post-it® Super Sticky Big Notes, 4 – 15" x 15" pink Post-it® Super Sticky Big Notes, 1 – 22" x 22" blue Post-it® Super Sticky Big Note and one package of Post-it® Arrow Flags.
Center your bracket with a page from a blue 22" x 22" Post-it® Super Sticky Big Note.
Working from the inside out, affix four pages from a pink 15" x 15" Post-it® Super Sticky Big Note to represent the regional final matchups, as pictured. Then, for the regional semi-final matchups, build your bracket out further with eight pages from a yellow 11" x 11" Post-it® Super Sticky Big Note.
Adjacent to the 11" x 11" Post-it® Super Sticky Big Notes, stick one 3" x 3" Full Adhesive Super Sticky Note to denote the winner of each opening-round game to show the teams advancing to round 2 – totaling 32. Now, stick one 2" x 2" Full Adhesive Super Sticky Note on the wall for each team containing its name and seed, then group them together for each initial matchup in the round of 64.
Let the games begin! As the tournament progresses, record the winners and move the winning team's Post-it® Note forward to the next Super Sticky Big Note page, and move the Arrow Flag to whichever team is now the top seed. Repeat as the tournament progresses until a winner is crowned.
Have fun getting in on the madness!
