20/20 + 1

Recommended Posts

The 20/20 game has been a fascinating source of fun and frustration in equal measure but no the first year will all be dwindling Centarians by the end of 2020. @Sean has given his blessing to the continuation of this game in whatever form and we thank him for his initial great idea. 

 

This new version will just last one year and from my point of view is relatively low maintenance.

 

Basically the aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the years 1921-1930.You need 2 from each year and you must have one male and one female from each year.Candidates only qualify if they have a national news article about their death in English and or an obituary. The game does not start until 1 January 2020 (UK Time Zone) and no teams can be posted before this time and will continue until the end of the year. 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 the person with most hits in the year. The pool restarts as soon as a link from the the qualifying Obituary is posted verifying age of the deceased (by their own standard).No two players can have duplicate picks and the age given in the article 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. 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.

 

There is no limit to the number of players and you can enter the round at any point. You may even miss some rounds if they are quick.

You do not need an admin to confirm your pick if you have a QO to post your next round team but you may be challenged if it in any way suspect.

I needed to edit my list since I understood the rules incorrectly at first. I know I posted my edited list some minutes before Yvonne (I refreshed the page and there were no new comments), but there's probably no way to confirm that now since I just edited my old comment and didn't write a new one. I didn't realize I should have, so it was my mistake.

Due to my mistake, it might be fair I would be the one editing my list again, but I don't really have energy for that now, so if that's the case, I think I will just drop out of the first round

You can always edit your list to remove the content and the replace the list in a later post as long as it is in the rules it is a shame to potentially pass up on a future hit for a misunderstanding.
