Oldest Living State Leaders DP

Recommended Posts

Rules:

*Whoever wants chooses a pick from this list, which contains the names of the 20 oldest living state leaders at the moment. If your pick dies you get one point.

* Whoever gets the highest number of points wins the game.

*Any obit in any language is qualifying, if the man is really dead.

*A new round is started whenever a state leader dies, even if he has not been picked by anyone.

*You have to pick a name at every round. You can keep the same name if you want.

*Every leader can be picked by a single user. Once the leader is already picked you can't choose him. 

*Game ends when all the original 20 leaders (the first list, including Anton Vratusa) are dead.

I'm sorry but Jean of Luxembourg is already picked. You have to pick another name.

I'm sure there's a logical reason for this pool starting 6 months before being posted.

I think it's better if a person can be picked by several people. Lest it turns into a game of musical chairs.

Mustafa Ben Halim for me. Partly because he's apparently resident in Libya again, which is hardly the safest place on earth.

I'm forced to add Suriname Prime Minster Jules Sedney, born in 1922. 21 names up now, which means no new entries for next round.

Since I fear I'll not live enough to see a hit, beginning from next round there will be 30 names to choose from and the list will be really complete, including Janez Stanovnik and that Montenegro president I forgot about. Plus the one and only Bobby Mugs will make his debut. Anyway from how slow this is going you get an idea about how difficult it is for an over 95 head of state to Die.

My son will probably run this 20 years after my death and I'm not ill at the moment!

Don't fret drol, I feel like Le Duc Anh is going to settle things very soon.
