Will you watch the Super Bowl for the game, the commercials, or as an excuse to eat as many chicken wings as you want? Whatever your reason, Big Game parties come with more etiquette rules than you may realize.

Avoid a Super Bowl party faux pas by following our advice below.

Then tell us if you agree and you'll be entered to win a YETI Ramber Lowball 4-Pack, the insulated cups everyone's talking about.

Issue #1: You hate the game but love the commercials. When can you chat with your friends?

The Super Bowl party is not the best time to catch up with a friend you haven't seen in a while. If you both agree that football is not your priority, pick a spot away from the TV to chat while the game is playing. But remember that everyone in the room will likely be able to hear you, so if you are loud during the game, you can't shush others during the commercials.

Issue #2: Half the people coming to your party are on diets. But a Super Bowl isn’t a Super Bowl without your Famous Cheesy Bacon Nachos. Do you serve them?

YES! Serve a veggie plate next to it for people who care, or make the night a potluck so others can bring what they want to eat. Have those once-a-year treats, and enjoy them. Just don't push your delicious nachos on guests who don't want them. After all, with less people splurging, there will be more for you!

Issue #3: You have friends who are diehard fans of the Eagles. Other friends are extreme Patriots fans. Should you invite them both?

Of course! Trash talk is part of the fun. However, you might want to have a spare TV in the basement or bedroom. If things get too dicey, be prepared to separate your fans.

Issue #4: You get up to refill your drink. Someone takes your seat. Should you ask them to move or sit elsewhere?

In most cases, you should find somewhere new to sit. But if you really want to keep your seat, try this: As you get up, shout "fives!" This reserves your seat for five minutes. If your crowd accepts this, you are good - but make sure to come back quickly. However, if someone comes by, sees the empty seat and screams "MOVE YOUR FEET, LOSE YOUR SEAT" before sitting down, then you better find a new place to park.

Issue #5: The host wants to have fun bets about the game but you don't want to play. Should you participate?

It's best to join in to some degree. If you really don't want to play, offer to be the official judge of the game, though this may involve you counting talking animals or "wardrobe malfunction" mentions. But try to participate. After all, you are a guest and sometimes you just have to play by the house rules.

We avoided all party faux pas by staying home and watching as a small family. We ordered burgers and fries and ate in front of the tv. There are only 3 of us so we all agreed to each teachers our favorite commercial after the game. We also rated the commercials as they came on. It was very enjoyable.

I'll be avoiding channel surfing and will plan to watch as much of the game I can.

It's hard for me not to talk during the game. But, I'm going to try my best.

I honestly avoided this Super Bowl due to living in Minnesota and having to work in Minneapolis a couple of days during the festivities. Not a big party person because i tend to just find the pet and make it my friend.

I agree with the etiquette rules. I try not to talk during the game and I enjoy the food, commercials and half-time show.
