Death By Numbers 2019

Recommended Posts

The masterlist is now 99,9% finished.

I hope there are no mistakes on it, but you can check it and notify me.

 

As I said before, I will be away from home from the 3rd-6th. I assume there will be hits by then. But the scoreboard will have to wait.

 

Also, if the giant list creates problems for the forum, let me know. Then I change the format to Phantom of the Midway's horizontal listing of last year.

 

Edit: Also thank you to those who added birthyears to the names, that will prove useful!

From my list- "Herb Cox (the politician, I assume)"- yes, that is correct.  Thanks.

Stop the game now! :lol:

 

I've shared the lead sometimes in the Inverse from time to time, but outright first, never. Won't last....but I'll savour this brief moment in the sunshine.

There'll be an update on the weekend.

 

I'm not at home right now to check, but I think @Gooseberry Crumble you also had a hit with Muriel Pavlov.

A quick and dirty update before I collapse from coughing and sneezing..

 

Quite the interesting bunch of hits, Stanley Donen, Peter Tork, Gordon Banks, Bruno Ganz, Michael Murphy, Paul Flynn and Jordan Dawes with the perfect score of 100. 

Bernice McCabe, so far, is a non-obit. Three players are waiting. Will the broadsheets pick up her name?

 

Tanya Gendle... I will let subs come into place. Joey gets Beth Chapman, and Clorox... well, letting her get subbed is me being slightly generous, but his sub, Pauline Maroney, is not famous enough as a fringe pick. His second sub would be Steffan Lewis, which is a problem. Can I award these points kind of retroactively? I decided against it, because he never really was in the game to score. So the third sub Leah Bracknell is going to come into play. Hopefully an acceptable compromise, as there are clouds appearing on her horizon.

 

And Michael Murphy, I know his age at time of death (66) but not the year of death. He could have been born in either 1952 or 1953. I will now award the 52 points. If you come across any proof that he was born in 1953 (and celebrated a final birthday in 2019), show it to me.

 

This is the new scoreboard:

1 Phantom of the Midway 624
2 Clorox Bleachman 506
3 Devon Death Trip 481
4 Cpt Chorizo 477
5 Joey Russ 476
6 GCReptile 464
6 msc 464
8 drol 422
9 Banana 391
10 Sir Creep 381
11 Skinny Kiltrunner 330
12 Death Impends 327
13 Grim Up North 289
14 YoungWillz 268
15 Book 129
16 Fixed Business 84
17 Prophet 83
18 Yorkshire Banker 82
19 markb4 81
20 Gooseberry Crumble 73
20 John Key 73
22 Grave Danger 56
23 theoldlady 49
23 The mad hatter 49
25 Deathray 36
26 The old crem 35
27 Bibliogryphon 0
27 The Unknown Man 0
27 The Quim Reaper 0
27 Pedro 67 0

 

 

If I forgot anything, let me know!

It appears I've made a dreadful and embarrassing mistake, and submitted my inverse pool entry by accident.
