Dead pool 2019

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 1/10/19. I won't look at anyones until I have choosen my own.

2) All entries must be messaged to me by 11:59:59 PST January 9, 2019 to be valid, or until I post everone's choices on here. Whichever comes last.

3) Each member chooses 20 celebrities/ famous persons. 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 2018 but we'll extend the challenge to 1/17/19 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 2 more players, that Celeb will be disqualified.

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, we will add the numbers on the list of each deceased celebrity that you had correct. The contestant with the lowest number wins

7) Winner will be listed on 1/8/20. Any missed celebrity deaths must be posted here if not updated by 1/7/20. 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 2019

I've modified the rules to make this easier to track. No alternatives this time so be careful not to pick already desceased celebrities. Highest correct picks wins. In the event of a tie we will add up the numbers each deceased celeb was on the your list. In the event of a tie, whomever has the lowest number wins.

Remember to PM to me and not post them on here.

Re: Dead pool 2019

Since this is starting a little late, deaths on or before the due date for entries do not count. Deaths starting 1/10/19 after all entries are in will count.

Re: Dead pool 2019

What if you submit your entry today, but someone on it dies before the 10th? Do you get to pick an alternate or are you just SOL?

Re: Dead pool 2019

1 week for entries sounds kind of long. I think if you've got a good number of entries after a couple days, shorten the deadline - because I've got some picks who could drop any minute now.

Re: Dead pool 2019

My God! The madness of death! I think we may be killing celebrities by not capping the list sooner...

The Captain of Captain and Tennille and Blake Nordstrom, the 58-year-old co-president of Nordstrom, died today....

Re: Dead pool 2019

So the "Captain" from "The Captain and Tennille", Mean Gene and Super Dave all died today... all at the age of 76. Interesting.

Re: Dead pool 2019

This week has been rough.

Mean Gene, Bob Einstein (Super Dave Osbourne), and Pegi Young Neil Young's ex are all gone.

Sent. And sure enough, I go to some news sites and see two celebs who are allegedly "near death" that I hadn't considered.

Re: Dead pool 2019

I'm up to 13 entries so far and mine will be 14. There's still plenty of time for those that want to play.

Remember that any deaths that occur before the 10th PST do not count, so if any occur before the deadline, remeber to update your picks.
