    I have enjoyed taking part in a number of dead pools this year, and would like to give back a bit more next year. I'm not talented enough to come up with a brand new idea for a pool that I could run, but there is the low hanging fruit of simply sponsoring a team on the Doug Stanhope Celebrity Death Pool site. I would be willing to put up the registration fee if there is enough interest. Some of you are no doubt familiar with this site, but for those who are not, it's a site where you register your own pool (funeral home) and invite whoever you want (mourners) to participate. The nuts and bolts of it is that you choose 20 celebrities. There are no QOs as such, but rather the celebrity you choose has to be in their database, which you will find is both somewhat American-centric and also sets the bar a bit higher than your average pool as far as celebrity needs to go. Some of your more obscure, especially non-American, celebrities won't be in the database. You can request they be added, but my experience is that they usually get shot down. Regardless, the formula for points is 100-age, with bonuses for pool uniques, site-wide uniques, and various other factors ( ie. suicide, overdose, birthday, airplane crash) each with their own cute title. You are allowed one trade per month, on the 15th, but you can't choose someone who has already been taken in your pool. This pool is how I started out with deadpools, and I take part in about 10 pools. There are other pools you can join if you wish and they have open entry, even some paid pools so you can make a couple of bucks. Pretty sure if we put a pool together, it would vie for the top pool in the site. So tell you what, if you are interested, like this post. If it looks like we can put together 15-20 people, I will register a funeral home for us and send out the invites to those interested. In the meantime, if you are interested, check out the site (dscdp.com) and register a profile. Maybe to keep it simple for invites and competition sake, use your alias on this site, or at least something recognizably similar. If we decide to give it a go, I'm open to suggestions for funeral home names.

    5 folks had Terry Jones at the DSCDP, for 23 points each. More points on the board, we are well into it now.

    So we're on the move! Heck of a hit, Egil Krogh, Chicago lawyer. First blood and solo bonus. 5 hits site wide, so not a total sleeper, but nicely done. Now the grind begins. Can he hold the lead?

    Political Frailty

    I consider anyone not mentioned in the forum as a sleeper, but there are probably 2 or 3 dozen folks scrubbing her from their lists as I write this.

    My top pick sleeper pick that I was hoping would hold on until the Deathlist Cup didn't make it to the start line. Allison Copening, former Nevada senator, dead at 55 from apparent cardiac issues. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.fox5vegas.com/news/former-nevada-legislator-allison-copening-has-died-family-says/article_b52ee986-3a1c-11ea-8d0a-63b0aeed3a7e.amp.html

    The 2020 Deathlist Cup

    My crystal ball just had the flux capacitor go, and these fucking chicken bones just keep telling me something about an overinflated orange, whatever that means. I might need some new ones that aren't from KFC.

    If you get a hit, you will get an automatic email from the site. Aside from this, the hits there get put up on their dashboard page, and the score totals are managed for us by the site as well. I'll probably make note of some of the significant hits here, but others can feel free to as well if the mood strikes them. I'm not possessive of this. I'm hoping there will be some form of running commentary here over the year by participants.

    Congratulations on First Blood, but I'm guessing it was in a different pool than Fossorius Endeavour? We all still seem to be at zero there, meaning this bonus is still up for grabs here.

    I don't know. He still looks ridiculous with his orange skin and hair, if you ask me.

    Not to be a dick about it (except that's exactly what I'm doing), we all have a 100% chance of dying this year. There is always the chance.

    Now we wait for the ever-sexy First Blood bonus. Who will it be? I say Neddy Smith.

    I took a chance on the Galyon boys, world's oldest conjoined twins. If one dies, they both die, so Daily Double is a good chance, plus solo points, for up to 164 points if it's their year. And if they die on their birthday, oh baby!

    Apparently they have 2 committees, one American and one international, that vote on submissions. I dont know what criteria they use, but I agree, inconsistent. The mandatory requirement is a wiki page, but its certainly no guarantee.

    Quick preview of the lists is pretty impressive- I see dead people! The biggest surprise to me is the solo for HdS for Daniel Arap Moi. Guess every figured he would get taken and wouldn't be worth more than 5 points, but now HdS is in line for the extra 25. Higher level thinking!

    What's the name, Torva? Is it public, or do we need an invite? I definitely have some ideas!
