    20 /20

    Had a new idea for a Dead Pool.Fortunately unlike Death by Numbers it will take less input from me.Basically aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the 1920`s.You need 2 from each year of the twenties from 1920-1929 and you must have one male and one female from each year.Candidates only qualify if they have a BBC national news article about their death and or an obituary The game carries on until we run out of names. As soon as one candidate from anyone`s list dies the pool will be immediately restarted and it is first come first serve. You can even be a bitch and steal someone`s entire list if you wish. It is a competitive game. The overall winner will be decided when there is universal agreement that a full list can no longer be made under the requirements. The pool restarts as soon as a link from the BBC is posted verifying age of the deceased (by their own standard).No two players can have duplicate picks and the age given on BBC will be accepted as soon as the article is published and pasted to this site.It has to be decisive at the time the news breaks. As soon as BBC give an age that matches the year of birth you have given them the pool will restart. If the age they give is different to the year of birth you don`t get a hit unless it is amended before another death that meets the criteria of a hit. Person with the most hits wins: Here`s my entry.No limit to how many teams can join Male Female 1920 Javier Perez de Cuellar Clarissa Eden 1921 King Michael of Romania Carol Channing 1922 Denis Norden Lillianne Bettencourt 1923 Shimon Peres Glynis Johns 1924 George H.W Bush Mary Warnock 1925 Hal Holbrook Dorothy Malone 1926 Fidel Castro Cloris Leachman 1927 Bhumibol Adulyadej June Brown 1928 Bruce Forsyth Ethel Kennedy 1929 Roger Bannister Betty Boothroyd

    Georgian Deadpool

    Sort of a reverse pool and the opposite of the Elizabethan Deadpool.Pick 50 names of living people born between 12th December 1936 and 5th February 1952.When the Queen dies the game ends and those with the most names still breathing is the winner.If there is a tie it will go to sudden death e.g if two teams still have 50 names alive the game will continue until one is down to 49. All entries must have their own wikipedia page as of today 17th March 2017. It is called the Georgian Deadpool as King George VI was the Queens father and Prince Charles will become King George when he is King.If Charles dies before the Queen the game is still valid but the title will be an epic fail. Entries open until 23:59 on the 20th April 2017.No entries will be accepted after this.Here is my team. 1)Prince Charles 2)Princess Anne 3)Donald Trump 4)Arnold Schwarzeneger 5)Bruce Springsteen 6)Jeremy Corbyn 7)Jane Seymour 8)Alan Johnson MP 9)Helen Worth 10)Twiggy 11)Paula Wilcox 12)Sherrie Hewson 13)Lesley Joseph 14)George W Bush 15)Elizabeth Warren 16)John Bowe 17)Peter Hain 18)John Nettles 19)Melanie Phillips 20)Peter Hitchens 21)Sharon Maughn 22)Michael Kitchen 23)Nigel Havers 24)Derek Hatton 25)James Mattis 26)Peter Gabriel 27)Wilko Johnson 28)Duncan Bannatyne 29)Jack Dromey 30)Harriet Harman 31)Martin Shaw 32)Peter Tatchell 33)Louise Jameson 34)Meryl Streep 35)Peter Frampton 36)Noel Edmonds 37)Brian Capron 38)Ben Carson 39)David Troughton 40)Jeff Sessions 41)Eugene Levy 42)Elaine Paige 43)Alison Steadman 44)Elizabeth Estensen 45)Graham Seed 46)Jack Straw 47)Virginia Wade 48)Duncan Bannatyne 49) Billie Jean King 50)Mitt Romney

    Roberta McCain

    I wouldn't pick her.Too old.Not enough points.Have set a limit of under 80s.

    10/10

    Like 20/20 and 50/50 pick ten names from the 1910s.First player to have no picks left alive wins (no murdering picks though).Obit rules for this one are any. worldwide professional news souces (In any language) including local news sites.An online link must be provided and the provenance of the source verified.Blogs do not count.If a pick doesnt have a wikipedia profile please list who they are in your entry.Picks dont have to be unique and if it turns out that someone on your list wasnt born in that decade you can replace them.Fill your boots.Here is my team 1)Zsa Zsa Gabor 2)David Rockefeller 3)Ken Hechler 4)Huston Smith 5)Hutton Gibson 6)Clare Hollingworth 7)Irwin Corey 8)Brunhilde Pomsel 9)Roberta McCain 10)Lupita Tovar

    Rush Limbaugh

    Exactly like when Thatcher died and people we celebrating in the street.Made the left a target from the right.I do think Limbaugh would be disappointed if certain people didn't wish him dead.
  16. Sean

    Rush Limbaugh

    If he dies does that mean Michael Moore Tony Danza Lars Ulrich Malcolm Jamal Warner and Fred Savage all die?
  17. Sean

    Rush Limbaugh

    Rush Limbaugh will make the news when he dies in Britain.Wont be a newsflash or headline news but will by no means go unnoticed.

    Seems a stretch that he will see 2021.

    Headline surely will have to be "That's arap!"
  20. Seeing as there is talk in the media about how many famous people we have lost this year following Victoria Wood`s death it strikes me how many have come completely out of the blue to the public (Bowie ,Rickman ,Wogan , Corbett (although he was quite old) Gest and now Wood).So I thought seeing as our comprehensive research appears to be eclipsed by quite a few complete surprises maybe we should do a kind of informal pool to guess the next unexpected celeb or "national treasure" that conks out with no warning. Here are the rules: -1 name per user -Named Celeb must be 85 or under. -The celeb can not be KNOWN PUBLICLY to be afflicted with Alzheimer`s or any form of dementia , any type of cancer, MND ,Parkinsons,diabetes,or have suffered a stroke or heart attack IN THE PAST.They must not have been in rehab or sectioned in the last 20 years also. -Unnatural deaths count as long as it isn`t expected i.e death row inmates. -Celebs can`t be obese. -If your pick announces any issues with health mentioned above that is ok as long as it was announced after you posted them. I am going for William Roache
