The Generation Game

Recommended Posts

I know I said I would never do another pool but I have come up with a cracker.Pick 20 names from the G.I Generation (1901-1924) Silent Generation (1925-1942) and Baby Boom Generation (1943-1960) and the first entry who has all 60 of their team snuff it wins.Obit rules are the same as the Derby Dead Pool ones.Duplicates are allowed.I have got my definitions of generations from the Strauss-Howe generational classification.Fill your boots.

So if even one single person dies without getting an obit then the player falls into permanent limbo?

If there is no deadline, when is the start line? Otherwise, how can someone die before the game started, as it technically started with your opening post.

Are you sure, he's got no baby boomers and literally cannot win the game.

 

No deadline.Piet de Jong died before the game started.Will replace him with Zhou Youguang.

 

In that case whats to stop me waiting for an imminent disaster involving 60 celebrities of various ages and entering them all? I suppose realistically the later you enter the less likely you are to "win" not that any of us will ever win this ridiculous game.
