The Joker's Dead Pool

Recommended Posts

So here are the standings right now:

 

1st: CaptainChorizo - 27 points

2nd: The Unknown Man - 25 points

3rd= Msc - 22 points

3rd= RadGuy - 22 points

5th: Death Impends - 19 points

6th: YoungWilz - 17 points

7th= Dead Cow - 16 points

7th= Pedro67 - 16 points

7th= RishCast - 16 points

10th: Bibliogryphon - 10 points

11th: Joeyruss - 7 points

12th: Shaun of the Dead - 5 points

13th: Goosberry Crumble - 3 points

14th: Cat O’Falk - -1 points

 

CaptainChorizo remains in the lead, taking a bigger lead in front of everyone, with only The Unknown Man close behind. The question I'm wondering is this: Will anyone take the lead from Chorizo? Only time will tell...

Honestly I'm just happy at jumping from the bottom of the table to somewhere in the middle!

 

They're going pretty fast - Skellern's another significant hit, I'm guessing, given the drop 40 bonus he brings to the table. Not a joker for me, but I'm just happy I had him in there!

I don't do micro points, unlike the Hartlepool...

That'll be the secret Cat bonus. Somewhere, Cat Stevens, Cat Power, etc are consulting their lawyers...

Here's an update for Coward and Skellern:

 

Coward will be getting a basic point as well as 3 bonus points for a bonus that have yet to be revealed, the 69 bonus, in which they'll score 3 extra bonus points if they die at 69. Shaun found secret spot #2, while The Dead Cow found secret spot #8.

 

Skellern is another hit, receiving the drop 40 bonus and the 69 bonus. Chorizo is rewarded a bonus point for finding secret spot #45. Other people rewarded an extra bonus point are Pedro for spot #45, joeyruss for finding spot #1, Death Impends for finding spot #2, and Dead Cow for spot #16.

 

New scoreboard:

 

1st - Captain Chorizo - 43 points

2nd - RadGuy - 40 points

3rd - Death Impends - 39 points

4th= - Dead Cow - 37 points

4th= - msc - 37 points

6th - The Unknown Man - 32 points

7th - RishCast - 31 points

8th - Shaun of the Dead - 29 points

9th= - Bibliogryphon - 28 points

9th= - Pedro67 - 28 points

11th - YoungWilz - 17 points

12th - joeyruss - 15 points

13th - Gooseberry Crumble - 3 points

14th - Cat O'Falk - minus 1 point

 

Shaun, Dead Cow and Death Impends in particular made a huge jump this round, with Death Impends entering the podium. RadGuy climbs up to second place, but still cannot grasp Chorizo, who's increased his lead once again by one point. Will he be taken over, and if so, when?

 

Also, I know people are going to call this complicated, but you have to have those critics. I'm open for suggestions to improve this for next year... (and before you ask, the bonus list will not be revealed).

I think the currently DDP update only contains Hewlett as a joker who was picked in this one?

Hewlett is in fact the only one who was picked for this update, as while Abdel-Rahman was eligible, no one selected him (shame). Not a huge change in the scores this time, as he only gives a basic point and a DQSBP point. The only people who will be getting more than two is msc for finding secret spot #25 and Bibliogryphon, who jokered him. Here's the scores:

 

1st - Captain Chorizo - 48 points

2nd - Death Impends - 44 points

3rd= - msc - 43 points

3rd= - RadGuy - 43 points

5th - Dead Cow - 42 points

6th - Bibliogryphon - 35 points

7th - RishCast - 34 points

8th= - Shaun of the Dead - 33 points

8th= - Unknown Man - 33 points

10th - Pedro67 - 32 points

11th - joeyruss - 18 points

12th - YoungWilz - 17 points

13th - Gooseberry Crumble - 3 points

14th - Cat O'Falk - minus 1 point

 

The biggest place change this update is Bibliogryphon, who jumped from 9th all the way to 6th due to a group of people who didn't have Hewlett. Meanwhile, not only did RadGuy drop a place in the podium, he also now has to share his spot with msc. Chorizo maintains his lead, but Death Impends has been slowly climbing up the leaderboard. Will he finally replace Chorizo next time?

A quick update for Jay Clark. You all who selected him will get your expected basic point and DQSBP point, but there's a twist. Shameless types will actually make you lose a point, so Dead Cow and msc will receive one point, with Chorizo, who jokered him gaining 2 points... until you add that he found secret spot #16, meaning he's now in the lead by 8 points. I call that luck right there. Have we found our winner already? 

 

 

New Leaderboard:

1st - Captain Chorizo - 52 points

2nd - Death Impends - 44 points

3rd - msc - 44 points

4th= - Dead Cow - 43 points 

4th= - RadGuy - 43 points

6th - Bibliogryphon - 35 points

7th - RishCast - 34 points

8th= - Shaun of the Dead - 33 points

8th= - Unknown Man - 33 points

10th - Pedro67 - 32 points

11th - joeyruss - 18 points

12th - YoungWilz - 17 points

13th - Gooseberry Crumble - 3 points

14th - Cat O'Falk - minus 1 point

Once again, just the one hit with Ronald Drever - I think DI was the only one who had him?

Magill was a hit as well. Update will come later tonight.

I just looked at the front page, completely forgetting that Magill wouldn't be there but in the vault :banghead:

A potentially decisive hit comes in the form of Ronald Drever. Let me clarify on how you get unique points, you can get three extra bonus if either the joker is a unique pick in the DDP or if you are the only person who selected him. And if the pick fall under both, you get six points. Well, Death Impends got lucky, because he will be receiving a total of 8 POINTS!!! The basic point, the 6 unique points, and a lucky find of spot number 20. This means that Death Impends now reached the score of Chorizo...

 

That is, until you include Magill in the scoring as well. Her scoring is the same as Jay Clark from earlier, 1 basic point, 1 DQSBP point, and a point taken away for the shameless. There are people gaining an extra point, Pedro for spot #32, and The Dead Cow who jokered him, and now shares a podium spot with msc.  

 

1st - Death Impends - 53 points 

2nd - Captain Chorizo - 52 points

3rd= - Dead Cow - 45 points

3rd= - msc - 45 points 

5th - RadGuy - 43 points

6th - Bibliogryphon - 35 points

7th= - Pedro67 - 34 points

7th= - RishCast - 34 points

9th= - Shaun of the Dead - 33 points

9th= - Unknown Man - 33 points

11th - joeyruss - 19 points

12th - YoungWilz - 17 points

13th - Gooseberry Crumble - 3 points

14th - Cat O'Falk - minus 1 point

 

That's right. Death Impends has now made the race a lot tighter with Chorizo, and currently leads by one point. Meanwhile, msc, The Dead Cow, and RadGuy are hunched very close, with any one of them having potential to make an upset with the top 2, and you never know, someone outside the top 5 could make a comeback at any moment. I don't think Cat O'Falk will win though...

He's one of those heavy hitters.

Hit for me too!

 

Will admit that I'm surprised he wasn't on the Drop 40 (and thus worth more here), though I guess that while his age made him an (almost) sure shot, it also meant fewer points. And he just wasn't exciting enough, I suppose :P

Two teams thought Colin Dexter would die, and they're right. This is probably going to be a massive update next time I'm guessing.

Ah, but you guessed Berry, the only one in fact, and your one of many who guessed Rockefeller. Though he was sub #5 for Death Impends, so he's joint leader now if I remember correctly instead of leader. I'll know for sure when I do the update.

Massive update? Why, which popular pick just got the last rites?

I'm guessing it's a result of the David Rockefeller death more than anything - everyone else has just been chosen by 1 or 2 people.
