40/40

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised that a game around the 1940s hasn't come into fruition, especially since there's a game around the 50's! I figured since baby boomers are starting to decline, this pool should be started. 

The rules are simple, pick 40 people from the 1940's on your team. If they die and receive a DDP eligible obit, then you get a hit. If they don't obit within three months, you replace them with another person. The first person with all 40 people dead and have a QO wins.

After the first 15 names, coming up with the rest was actually quite difficult for me, so here goes nothing:

  1. Kathleen Blanco
  2. Pat Bowlen
  3. Eric Clapton
  4. David Crosby
  5. Tim Curry
  6. Gerard Depardieu
  7. Oliver Dragojevic
  8. Donald Fagen
  9. Aretha Franklin
  10. Superstar Billy Graham
  11. Jimmy Greaves
  12. Luke Halpin
  13. Stephen Hawking
  14. Cynthia Heimel NQO
  15. Bill Heine
  16. Mazie Hirono
  17. Tony Iommi
  18. Mick Jagger
  19. Terry Jones
  20. Jose Jose
  21. Tessa Jowell
  22. Peter Lorimer
  23. Stan Mikita
  24. Joni Mitchell
  25. Olivia Newton-John
  26. Jalal Mansur Nuriddin

Oh no, not another "starts now and here's my team" DP.  

Sooo much better to give notice of a starting date, with teams only revealed once the game is underway.

I wanted it to be one of those can join any time pools for those who missed out on the major dead pools, hence why I revealed my team now. You can join anytime if you want.
