Inverse Dead Pool 2021

Recommended Posts

INVERSE DEAD POOL 2021

 

No doubts 2020 was a bonkers year. Somehow we have survived it, but the same could not be said for 19 of the selectables for last year's Inverse Dead Pool. There were a number of hits that were selected by at least half the participants - Jill Gascoine, Michael Robinson, Little Richard, Olivia de Havilland, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Barbara Windsor (34 out of 36 teams!) - and the end result was the Quim Reaper winning with the highest score yet. But even as the farewells to Kirk Douglas and friends leave us wondering who could be left, fear not, there's still plenty of popular DDP pickings to root for the survival of...

 

Rules

 

  • From the list of the 50 most popular DDP picks of 2021, pick a team of 25 names who you think will survive the year.
  • Rank your list in order of least likely to die to most likely to die.
  • Post your team in this thread.
  • If someone dies and they are listed on your team, then you will receive points according to their position. If your #1 pick dies you'll receive 25 points, whilst if your #25 pick dies you'll receive 1 point. If someone dies and they are not on your list, then you receive no points.
  • In case one of the names available for entry dies before the submission deadline, you are allowed to have one sub. The sub can be anyone from the top 50 or the 51st most popular name, who will be revealed alongside the top 50. The 51st name can not be part of the original 25 if no one dies. In the case of one of your original team dying pre-deadline, the sub goes into 25th place by default, but if the sub was previously the 51st, you are allowed to change the position of the new pick. If the above scenario happens, you are also allowed to name a new sub and I will reveal the 52nd most popular name.
  • Whoever has the lowest score at the end of the year is the winner. If two or more teams are tied at the end of the year, the tie will first be decided by who has less hits. If they have an equal amount of hits, then whoever among the teams died latest in the year, and thus came closest to being a correct prediction, will decide the winner. If said name was on multiple teams in the tie, whoever had said name lowest will win. If multiple teams had said name in the same position, the second most recently-deceased name will be referred to, and so on, until a winner is found. If, by some alignment of the stars, the tie is of either no hits or of all of the exact same hits in the exact same positions, all teams in the tie share victory.

 

 

Credit to Toast for inadvertently coming up with a peach of a topic description, and of course, credit to Spade for creating this wonderful game. Credit to Dead Cow for his job as previous host, laying the framework for the Inverse Dead Pool's OP, and the idea for a "dies during entry period" rule. Credit to machotrouts for the suggestion of the latest hits factoring into tiebreakers.

This was hard. The first half dozen were not too difficult but then everyone  else was a potential land mine.

 

Am hoping that other people score big rather than I score small. Tough year.
