Dead pool 2020 edition

Dead Pool 2020 Edition

1) To avoid anyone copying another members choices, all entries to be PM'd to me and I will post everyone's choices on 12/31/19. 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 DECEMBER 31, 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. Winner will be the player with the highest number of correct picks. In the event of a tie, we will calculate the numbers that each celeb was on your list. The player with the lowest number will win the tie breaker. If there is still a tie we will go with the player that reach their correct picks the earliest.

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.
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 and player will get 7 days to pick a replacement that is not already on someone else's already posted list.
No death row inmates can be choosen.
6) If a person on your list that you have submitted passes before the beginning of the year, you have until the December 31st deadline to choose a replacement or 7 days after that celeb's death which ever is later. If you make your replacement choice after December 31st, you cannot choose any celeb on another player's already posted list
7) 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 1/8/21. Any missed celebrity deaths must be posted here if not updated by 1/7/21. 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.

Bump. I have 7 entries so far not counting mine. If you want to get your entries entered into the pool, you still have a few days to PM me with your picks.

Re: Dead pool 2020 edition

I sent mine in but may have missed the deadline. I'm ok with my participation trophy going to another needy kid. I started sending it yesterday and had company show up earlier than expected. I do say I have to worry a about all 20 peoples fates being on the line if not under the umbrella of protection my list seems to offer....

I'm fine with letting it count, if the OP agrees.

Re: Dead pool 2020 edition

Stern the first big name to go down for 2020.

I hope this is not like 2016 the blockbuster year of celebrity deaths.

Re: Dead pool 2020 edition

I don't see the harm in letting people join a day or two late... obviously can't count any of their picks that died before they joined.

I forgot about Stern being on his death bed... would've been a nice quick hit on the first day of the pool.

Hmm well I think if you write an essay (nothing big.. like 60-80 pages) detailing why you couldn't submit the list on time we can then go ahead and present that to the full panel for a floor vote. This process can take several years..
