Ready to do battle and steal those picks from your fellow players

 

Its fast and fun but you need to be on the ball but if you miss a round or two you can join in at any time

 

Basically the aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the years 1924-1933.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 2024 (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. Its 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 article 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 have been a number of  cases where two or more deaths break at about the same time. If a later breaking death occurs but it actually happened before the start of the new round you will be awarded the point if you had the earlier death in your team at the point that they died. I will do my best to be fair and even handed.

 

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 changed Jimmy to Jack Burke which was wrong and he has now been changed to William Russell, hopefully that is okay now
