So, is the 1937-52 game still at "everyone wins" then?

Well Joey is losing by a couple of miles and ZZL lost Art Bell so is at 49.Everyone else still has a full set.

Ah good. I'll have you know I spent a whole 30 seconds or so looking up "births in 1950 and 1951" on Wiki in research for this game.

With McCains illness, I realized why no one had him on the list:As he was born under the reign of Edward VIII.In order not to leave the majority of 1936 births out this theme of games I am proposing an Edwardian Deadpool on this thread.Pick 12 names (one for each month) of Edward`s disastrous reign and the first person to get all 12 wins.DDP rules apply.Any nonscoring hits can be replaced after 3 months.Entries open now and only close when the game ends i.e someone gets a full house!

 

1)John McCain

2)Burt Reynolds

3)Colin Meads

4)Bill Wyman

5)Glen Campbell

6)Peter Swan (Football)

7)Richard Wilson

8)Albert Finney

9)Glenda Jackson

`10)F.W de Clerk

11)Ursula Andress

12)Sepp Blatter

4/10 for me  now.

Another disclaimer.If the Queen outlived all 50 picks put forward by the four players each player will have to submit another list of 50 names born on or before 20th January 1936.Again the  winner would be determined by the highest number of surviving picks upon QE2s death.In the event of a draw it would again go to sudden death until a winner is found who has the highest number of survivors.Highly unlikely scenario but you never know.

Bloody hell this is going badly.

A lot can happen in this game though.Still very much an open field.It is by in large your older older picks that have died.

DL-y?  I mean, I'm clearly biased given he's Ian, but... ignoring Who, he was also a leading TV actor of the 50s (Sir Lancelot, Nicholas Nickleby) and an RSC actor for 30 odd years (including the lead in Hamlet more than once), plus The Great Escape, Superman, The Man Who Never Was, Above Us the Waves, Blackadder, Corrie, etc etc.

Is Scott Walker the first hit of the other Georgian Pool of those actually trying to win?

EDIT: No, Art Bell died before Walker, and he wasn’t on my list...
