Windy City Deadpool 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

Ah, April. As the weather gets warmer, the DDP hits get fewer.

But - not to fret - as the Windy City Deadpool is here to save us all from a summer of deadpooling boredom!



Pick a team of 21 people.

The higher their rank, the more points they get when they die and obit.

Submit it to me via PM or on this thread, by the end of April.


Scoring System:

1st pick: 500 points

2nd pick: 450 points

3rd pick: 400 points

4th pick: 350 points

5th pick: 300 points

6th pick: 275 points

7th pick: 250 points

8th pick: 225 points

9th pick: 200 points

10th pick: 180 points

11th pick: 160 points

12th pick: 140 points

13th pick: 120 points

14th pick: 100 points

15th pick: 85 points

16th pick: 70 points

17th pick: 55 points

18th pick: 50 points

19th pick: 45 points

20th pick: 40 points

21st pick: 21 points

As you can see the margin slowly decreases from 50 to 25 to 20 to 15 to 5 until the 21st pick.

In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by whoever has the most unique hits.


Bonus Points

The Good Die Young Bonus-The Youngest Celeb Picked who dies is a 100 Point Bonus

Lucky 7 Bonus- 77 Points Bonus for anyone who dies in the last 7 days of the game April 24-30

Luck Of The Irish Bonus-Anyone who dies March 17 is worth a bonus 50 points

Día de Muertos aka Day Of The Dead Bonus-Anyone who dies btwn Oct 31 and Nov 2 is worth 31 points

Belsnickel Bonus-Anyone who dies on Dec 25th/Christmas Day get's a 25 point bonus

Festivus Miracle-Anyone who dies on Dec 23 get's a 23 point bonus

You're Tearing Me Apart Bonus-Anyone who dies on Dec 8 the birthday of "Juliette Danielle" aka Lisa from The Room,get's an 8 point bonus

Auld Lang Syne -Anyone who dies on New Year's day get's a whopping 1 point bonus




Acceptable Obits:

Anything accepted by the Derby Dead Pool, plus The Independent.

Plus the following national American news sources:

- New York Times

- LA Times

- CBS News

- Fox News




Plus the following International news sources:




* Cancer Mum's/Athlete's Wives(IE Tiffany Youngs) and other Famous For Being Ill Types will not be accepted even if they get a qualifying Obit


*Some name's may appear like  a gray area(ie Roz Patterson).Notable in her Native Country as a reporter and would easily get a QO with a plane crash or auto accident type death.However if none of her QO obits mention her journalistic career and is just an angle about her being a Cancer Mum then no points will be awarded.




The competition lasts from May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020.

Get your team in before Big Ben welcomes the month of May.
