    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.

    My minions are slacking normally someone would have drawn my attention to the fact that Dave Bartholomew was a hit here for @msc and a unique one at that. It doesn't put him on the verge of winning but he is only two uniques or a boxer and Prime Minister away from victory.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    These recall petitions might mean players take a different approach after the next election. Chris Davies (Brecon and Radnorshire) is not a hit here. The Conservatives increased their majority here in 2017 but closest challenges are the Lib Dems. Could be interesting. Chris Davies is allowed to stand.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    Well that was unexpected but we pick ourselves up and start again, so I present to you By-Election Bingo II (2017-22) with increased picks. Just pick 50 MPs who you think might depart their seat before 2022 and I will keep score Death = 30 points Crimianl activity - 20 points Resignation - 10 points (reducing to 5 if they defect and regain their seat) The will be 10 point bonuses for unique picks and a 25 point bonus for the by-elction that wipes out the majority of the governing party and 50 point bonus if the by-election results brings down the government. Be warned this will try our patience as you will need to invest 5 years to play (but we thought that last time). PM me with your teams from June 9 onwards. I will give you until 30 June to have them all lined up. Lets see if we can get more players this time.

    I think my boss is getting suspicious. I am part of a team of six and both the two senior members of the team have lost their Fathers with a two week period. Strange how these clusters come together. But I do appreciate all the support from my fellow Death Listers. I think this thread should be linked from the ranting visitors thread.

    James P McMullan provides a third hit in Dallas for both @Sir Creep and @Grim Up North so whilst they are not one win away from victory if the games goes on a long time they are strongly placed.

    Last Word

    Matthew Sweet tweeted that he had recorded a piece on Paul Darrow. So barring the deaths of all of Kirk Douglas, Olivia de Havilland, Prince Philip and Vera Lynn today he should be on tomorrow.

    Death In The Family

    Fortunately for me my Dad planned most of his funeral many years ago and my eldest sister is an arch organiser so I am not having to deal with admin issues. Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and thoughts.

    Death In The Family

    Last night my Dad died. He had been poorly for a few weeks. He was 90 but despite being blind for the last five years he was not unhealthy. We celebrated his 90th birthday back in February and then he was still able to participate. Things had not been easy for him considering he was a widower aged 50 with four children aged 19 to 9. He eventually started another relationship but she succumbed to Alzheimer's about 5 years ago.
