|Celebrity Death Pool, 2008
||[Dec. 13th, 2007|03:33 pm]
My adviser seems to have blown off our meeting, and I'm bored. So lets play!|
You pick 13 celebrities whom you think will shrug off this mortal coil in 2008. If any of your celebrities dies, you score 100 points minus their age at death. If you have the most points at the end of the year, you win!
-2. All picks must be submitted before EST, Dec. 31st, 2007. They must all still be alive at that time.
-3. Allowed picks are not:
a. a fictional character
c. under age 18 at death (cause that makes me sad)
d. Someone you know personally (cause we don't want a repeat of last years "unpleasantness", also again: sad)
-4. You can pick people who are 100 or more years old but you won't score points for them. See the "Quantity Not Quality" award, below. You won't get "negative points".
-5. If there's uncertainty about the age of the celebrity at time of death, we'll go with the higher age.
-6. Persons under sentence of death before the first day of 2007 will be valid for scoring points only if they die by means other than official execution.
-7. Any player who kills or otherwise contributes to the death of any celebrity mentioned in this thread is disqualified. Again, last years "unpleasantness". Remember, its just a game.
-8 A choice doesn't have to be original to your list, but don't copy someone else's list in entirety.
-9 Be specific. Ex. not "George Bush", "George Bush Sr"/"George Bush II"
-10 Feel free to submit a list for someone else if they don't have a livejournal account
-12 You can specify some alternates in case your a little too good at this and some of your choices die before the start of 2008.
Goddam it, I was trying to make it to 13 rules, but thats all I got
The "Quantity Not Quality" Award: to be awarded to the participant who has the most people on their list die, regardless of their point values.
The "Inside Track With the Grim Reaper" Award: to the person who picks the most dead celebrities no one else picked
The "Opening Kickoff" Award: to be awarded to the people whose pick dies first in 2008!
