    Deathlist Correctlist 2021

    Running this again, for better or worse. Please submit a list of names from this year's deathlist to predict who on the list is actually going to die this year. Points will be allocated as follows: +1 per death correctly predicted -1 per death incorrectly predicted +4 if the number of deaths you predict matches the actual number of deaths, i.e. the number of names in your list matches the actual number of deaths +2 if you only miss the correct total number of deaths by 1 -2 if you miss the total number of deaths by more than 5 +1 bonus for a "unique" correct prediction (predicted by no other punter here) +1 bonus if you pick the bookie's favourite (single most popular guess in this contest) and they are a hit. -1 penalty if you pick the bookie's favourite and they are a miss. A further +1 bonus for every 3rd correctly predicted death (+1 on 3rd, 6th, 9th etc) You may if you wish select one entry as a joker. We are changing the rules for the Joker this year: you get an additional +2 if correct, and an additional -2 if incorrect; no more multiplication. In the event of a tie on points, the dead-lock (see what I did there) will be broken by the following: 1) Whichever team had the most hits 2) If unbroken by 1, whichever team was closest in their guess of predicted deaths for the year 3) If unbroken by 1 and 2, whichever team was submitted first. Entries in by Jan 10th, please, either by pm or by posting here. Any deaths before then will still score for any lists entered at least 24 hours before the death and will still count towards the total deaths for the year. Good luck.

    And now we're closed to new entries. I've got a busy week of work ahead, but I'll try and draw up a spreadsheet of entries soon with these and the entries PM'd.

    Deaths of The Silver Screen Deadpool II

    I go looking for vaguely thematic movies with sufficiently famous cast to be certain to obit, with the probability of dying being more or less a tertiary consideration. Which definitely shouldn't be a winning strategy, nor have done as well as it did in the first round.

    How many hits this year (Pauls version)

    19. Very old and frail list this year, and excess Covid mortality will still be a thing for much of this year.

    How many hits this year?

    Yet another silly forum game: How many hits will the list generate this year? Forumites may guess a number between 0 and 50, but nobody can pick a number someone else has already guessed. Entries open until all the numbers have gone. And as the fool starting this game, I'm going to start the bidding high with 15...
  24. Let's see: - Covid excess mortality will still be a factor for much of this year since vaccine roll-out will take time - World's population, including its famous people, gradually getting older https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.POP.65UP.TO.ZS - Early TV era of celebs getting ancient now, and TV rather expanded the celeb population I expect there will indeed continue to be many famous deaths this year. Not sure how many though.
