Dead pool 2018

Since one hasn't been started yet, I'll start one here:

1) To avoid anyone copying another members choices, all entries to be PM'd to me and I will post everyone's choices on 1/1/17. I won't look at anyones until I have choosen my own.

2) All entries must be messaged to me by 12:59:59 PST December 31, 2017 to be valid, or until I post everone's choices on here. Whichever comes last.

3) Each member chooses 20 celebrities/ famous persons and 2 altenatives in case of death prior to the contest going live or being challenged by other members. Post your most likely expected deaths at number one and your least likely out of your 20 at postition number 20.

4) You may update any choices by pm'ing me until the same time as listed above

5) We'll use the same requirements for celebrity status as for 2017 but we'll extend the challenge to 1/17/18 since the entries won't be posted until 1/1/18:
Fame Disqualification: To encourage players to submit Celebs who are sufficiently famous for use in this pool, the following guidelines will be used to disqualify specific entries:
If a Celeb's death occurred more than 7 days before SUFFICIENT media coverage of their death, then that Celeb will be disqualified and no points will be awarded.
If a player submits a Celeb pick that other players feel is too obscure, they may issue a challenge. If the challenge is upheld by a 2nd player, that Celeb will be disqualified. If this disqualification occurs before the 1/7 start date, the owning player will be allowed to update their list.

6) Winning: We'll do a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. No awards for winning, just bragging rights.
Whichever members has the most correct picks at the end of the year wins. In the event that more than one member has the same number of correct picks, whichever member reached that number first wins. If they both reached that nimber at the same time, we go back to the next previous number and the member that got there first wins. In the event there is still a tie, the winner will be chosen by which member's correct pick is highest on the list (#1 being the highest and #20 being the lowest)

7) Winner will be listed on 1/8/19. Any missed celebrity deaths must be posted here if not updated by 1/7/19. It will be easy for me to miss some of the more obscure people you will all likely pick, so please help out and post on here when you become aware of any deaths so we can update the standings.

8) Don't post or talk about any potential choices on here until after everyone's choices are posted on here.

9) If I've missed anything necessary rule or clarification is needed post on here so we can update the rules.

Re: Dead pool 2018

Post on here if you intend to play this game. We would need at least 10 members to make it worthwhile.

Re: Dead pool 2018

I'm in. I didn't do so well last year. Maybe this year I'll have better luck whereas those on my list won't.

Re: Dead pool 2018

Got 11 notifications so far. I don't know whose they are yet as I won't look at them until the 1st. I've got a few that I know I'll put on the list myself, but I don't have anywhere near 20 yet.
