    Inverse Survivor Dead Pool I

    I am thinking of a new tiebreaking criteria, that would only currently harm one player by implementing it after the game was begun (Madhatter). And if madhatter doesn't get a team in soon, he may be eliminated anyway by the end of this month. The new criteria would be that the first tiebreaker will be cumulative points scored in previous months. Right now, madhatter is the only team with any points from round 1 and it is only 1 point. If anyone has a problem with this new rule, speak up before the end of the month, and preferably before any hits are recorded here in Oct. Check your Oct teams for accuracy (other than minor typos). Game on!

    I do like your thinking. I may take it exactly as you suggest, or maybe do something like this: Upon any death, the penalty is the highest number of points scored by an active list, +2. Or something similar. And since there has been no incident to invoke it yet, as long as it does not happen to the two late comers this month, I may install it as a rule starting in round 3. I think the reason that I did not go that high originally is because if someone is just a day or two late and for a good reason (who knows, death in the family, illness, etc) a 10 point penalty would almost surely spell their deathknell. But I agree that is more logical than having someone else go home that submitted on time. Thanks! WF

    No fear, the thread is lying to you. Your entry was read and booked some time ago. I get the message via an email, and when I see it there, the site evidently doesn't know it. The only two players that currently may run afoul of the late entry rule are The Unknown Man and Madhatter 1. And John Key's list is just for fun, as with the dawn of October round 1 is over and he is the first casualty with a big 4 points. Round 2 runs until the end of Oct. Who's next?

    Sep was a slow month, only 2 hits. Could mean good things for Oct. The Slavic Death returns to action after a self-imposed hiatus. The game is chronologically 3/4ths over and there are (in my estimate) 7 teams still in the running (allowing for Sean to regroup and put in a team or two before the end of the year). Maybe another 3 teams are a longshot with some real hot lists and a bit of luck to match. We are coming down the stretch, it is time to whip your horse . . . .

    A reminder to folks who play a lot of pools. I know it can get confusing to remember the specifics of each. But here, there are NO LATE ENTRIES. You potentially penalize yourself by entering late, as you may miss some low hanging fruit that drops, or miss out on a big name that gets selected at all 5 spots for the month. But you can submit your team at anytime in the month with no "official" penalty. Carry on.

    Please be sure to check for any obits prior to early posting of a new team, so that you may be credited for a legit score. If you post early, and do not report your score first, you can lose those points. If you wait until the start of the new month to post, but a late obit comes in for a name you had in that previous month, you will still get the points. Joey Russ loses his #2 slot for Oct, after forfeiting his 3 spot last month. It appears he is trying to win this thing with a self imposed handicap of 4 names per month . . . . what a brute. Would "Joey Rush" be more appropriate? My Oct lame-O's: Roberta McCain Johnny Clegg Clive James Gene Cornish Richard A Overton

    OK, I'm going to be lenient just this once and give it to you, despite the mistyping on my part.

    Remember to get your lists in for Round 2 (even you, John Key, in case there is a last minute change in the standings) anytime before the end of the month. You can post here or PM me if you prefer not to share until the round has begun. Late lists will incur a penalty if ANYONE on the master list dies in Oct prior to their list being submitted. See details in the intro to this thread. Remember, no names can be reused from your round 1 list, but 5 new names have been added for your selecting pleasure in round 2. John Key's time may be running out . . . . . . By the way, I thought it very amusing that British musician Chas Hodges, keyboardist of "Chas and Dave" died yesterday of . . . wait for it . . . . organ failure. How appropriate.

    Standings list is updated for all scores discussed above, plus a solo hit Denis Norden by Wouk This Way (at the D spot). Phantom is off to a helluva start. All is updated.

    I don't know what you mean by make some noise. Do you want a PM when someone scores? I will update the table fairly regularly as needed.

    Nice breakdown above, paddyfool. I had already looked at that for myself, but hadn't thought about doing it for all lists. Thanks for the work. It is interesting to see that only Bibliogryphon's list is impervious to a single death month. Lots of us can go home with as many as 4 or 5 different one-and-done scenarios! Some further stats: Yes, 50 of the 56 eligible names in round 1 were drafted. Only Don Lusk, Beverly Cleary, Leslie Philips, Herman Wouk, Norman Lloyd and Lucia Hiriart went untaken. Most common name was QE2 on 13 out of 17 lists. Second was Kenny Rogers at 9. Many names (13) were only taken once. Remember, I will likely add some names prior to round 2 so that the pool doesn't get too small. My goal will be to make the new names unattractive. Will you have the cajones to select them?
