Death Pool 2023

Post by Captain Hobo » Fri Jan 06, 2023 1:43 am

Pick 10 celebrities who you think may not have much time left with us. Points will be allocated based on their age as of January 1 2023. If it has previously been announced they had cancer or a terminal illness, I may reduce the point total for that celebrity. See post 8 for updates.

90+ - 1 point
80-89 - 2 points
70-79 - 3 points
60-69 - 4 points
50-59 - 5 points
49 and under - 10 points

All entries must be finalised by January 13 at latest.

Far be it from me to tell you how to run this but wouldnt it be better and more amusing if everyone picked 10 names and then points were distributed based on the age of death?
Big changes on the way ! We've heard it before but it's different this time !!!! , I believe Bdo gonna grow x

My first post was a direct copy of SAFC's previous one that Randall won.

😄

OK, I'll edit the first one and see how we go.

Happy now Ginge? 😄

Is attempting suicide "cancer or a serious illness"?

Serious mental illness.

You really reckon it should be 10?

I certainly dont think it should be the total you have decreed.
Also "mental illness" is a personal opinion, seemingly.

But you didn't pick him because you thought he'd die of old age. See why I said the rulings are final?

If I make it 5 will you shut up?

No i picked him as I think he is a Peaches Geldof-esque drug nutter, didnt even realise about the suicide attempts.

Yes, if you like.

Already done.

On another note, I had forgotten that Henry Kissinger was still alive. He might be like Tom Hanks in The Green Mile.
