    DEATHS OF THE SILVER SCREEN DEADPOOL

    As promised a movie survivors deadpool. RULES Pick a film with at least three (or four) remaining cast members and submit the name of the film and the three selected cast members on this forum The first player to have all three of their cast members die wins the round. No two players can pick the same film but are allowed to duplicate cast members If two players end up with their single remaining pick being the same performer then they are obliged to add a tie breaker to their team this can be any member of their film's cast or crew. At the end of the round entries are wiped and everyone picks again. All films in the previous rounds are out of bounds (though could be reintroduced in the subsequent round). Winning films will go into the Hall of Fame and are out of bounds for the whole game. Entries start from Monday 20th August but late entries will be permitted. However late entries may not duplicate actors.

    Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool II

    SCAVENGER HUNT BINGO DEADPOOL RULES Each player picks five selections in each of five categories (for categories see below). There are three ways to win 1. You get at least one hit in each of the five categories 2. You get all five hits in one category 3. You get three unique hits across the whole game. There is no fixed duration you play until there is a winner. In the event of a tie number of uniques will be the next determiner followed by total number of hits across all categories. Obits will not be stringent (more akin to Deathrace requirements). However the Game Controller will be checking that picks meet the category criteria at the start of the game. A unique pick is considered unique in category. For example if two categories were Conservative MPs and Contestants on Strictly Come Dancing/Dancing with the Stars and three players picked Edwina Curry in the first category and the fourth player picked her in the second category. If she eggspired then Player 4 would get a unique bonus. When a winner is declared the selection of the next categories passes to the victor and they get to select the new categories. The winner may opt to pass or play on the organisation of the game. If they pass I will run the game based on their selections or they can take the whole thing. The Categories for the second game are: 1. Presidents and Prime Ministers of the current 28 European Union countries (past and present). 2. Boxers who have held any of the world title belts of any 4 organisational bodies WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO. 3. Any actors who appeared in the TV series Dallas. Including cast members, co-stars, guest stars, special guest stars "and staring" actors (357 episodes over 14 years.). As per the wiki page "List of Dallas (1978 TV Series) cast members. 4. Grammy award winners 5. Anyone who has been in a film with Kevin Bacon. Teams must be PM’d to avoid revealing those unique picks. Starting Date is 01 March 2018.

    If the game is ended by say jimmy Carter, Leon Spinks or Valery Giscard d'Estaing then this will be a busy day on the forum anyway but it could equally be ended by Charles Maina or Lubomiv Strugal

    Four players score a boxers hit with Curtis Cokes For @YorkshireBanker it is his fourth hit, second in this category but does not give them any new ways of winning For @Spade_Cooley it is a seventh hit, second in the category but does not increase his current ways of winning (but see below) For @RoverAndOut it is his seventh hit but first boxer so now only needs a Grammy award winner. None of his picks are tied so he now has five shots For @Grim Up North it is another seventh hit and another first boxer needs an EU leader to win but two of his are tied so only three of his picks will result in a GUN victory however if he were to get another hit in any category he would steal the two finishers from Spade Bibliogryphon* bg 1/0/1/1/1 Fixed Business fb 1/0/2/0/0 Captain Chorizo cc 0/0/1/1/2 Time** ti 2/0/3/1/2 Toast to 2/0/2/0/1 YoungWillz* yw 2/0/0/0/3 msc* mc 0/0/2/1/1 Yorkshire Banker** yb 0/2/1/1/0 Sir Creep (Do I Need A Joker?)* sc 0/0/3/2/1 GCReptile* gr 1/0/2/0/0 Death Impends** di 0/0/3/2/1 Spade Cooley** sp 0/2/1/3/1 Rover & Out ro 2/1/3/0/1 Grim Up North gn 0/1/3/2/1 FujimoriNoMorey fm 1/0/1/2/0 All the finishers now 1.

    Once again thanks for flagging this up. A quick look suggests this could massively increase the finishing list and possibly throw in some ties. Update coming when I am on my laptop not phone.

    Room 101

    Well it is as you can imagine Mrs Biblio used to having the upstairs of the house to herself even when I am working from home was headed for her bath as God intended. I encountered her on the landing and accosted her. However in an effort to catch up with her in the lack of clothes I was rather hasty in using my foot to remove my trousers and I heard a sharp crack from the phone in my trouser pocket. Fortunately it is only a cheap phone & the damage is not too bad. But considering that neither of us are in the flush of youth it is a pretty embarrassing way to wreck your phone. Just glad it was not my work phone.

    Room 101

    I am not a massive technology addict but I have had a number of work phones and personal devices. I have dropped them in water and left them in taxis but I always wondered about how people managed to crack their screens so easily. I had never cracked a screen...... Until the first day of my furlough when I cracked my personal phone screen in the most embarrassing way possible.....

    Team sent. It was my Liz Dawn team updated off the top of my head. No new research. Probably why I forgot Julie Goodyear

    New round started with the death of Stanley Ho. Nicking other people's picks is legit if you get in first

    @YoungWillz gets his third hit in Kevin Bacon territory so he now needs two more uniques or two more Kevin Bacon co-stars. Thanks again for flagging this up.

    Her recent turn as King Lear should give her some comebacks on that little git. The one about the serpent's tooth springs to mind

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    I read a fair bit of Jean Plaidy when I was at school. Very easy to read and quite informative. Mrs Herald is currently reading The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    I bought Moon over Soho and Whispers Underground from the Works on two books for a fiver. Libraries are great but they have limited stock. There is a charity book stall at our station paperbacks 50p Hardbacks £1. However if I never bought another book. I still wouldn't run out for years.
