In 2008 the 7th Death was day 120 (29th April) and in record breaking 2017 it was on day 162 (10th June).

 

I think the next hit will be before the end of April

Yeah, it's very likely one hit before that date... I will say maybe 2

I’m a bit more cautious. Sure, there’s a lot of low hanging fruit but there’s really only a few names (Trebek, Tom Smith, probably Prince Philip) that you can call to be locks for the list. Still, if enough of the frail but not cert folk do end up dying, it could easily be record breaking imo...

It's possible some geriatrics on the list who would have otherwise made 2021 will end up Covid victims particuarly because the Usa and Uk could head to an Italy like curve

Pretty much the whole of the list is at risk because of the Corona Virus.  What happens if there is less than 25 people left on the list at the end of the year ? , hopefully I haven't jinxed getting a decent number of hits this year

Will the number of new picks be increased or will people who have previously been on the list make up the "returning 25" ?

 

Ive always wondered and this year is probably the best chance of this happening

I believe the rule is always up to 25 names dying, which allows for less than 25 to be carried over. Which I believe actually happened a couple of times even without more than 25 deaths...

I don't think the whole list is at risk with the corona, I doubt there is a chance one of them is getting it or dying of it this year honestly

Please, a big death (ODH, Carter, Vera or Phil) to distract us from corona for a moment...

Beginning of April and we're already on hit Number 7 (Thanks to the news about Honour Blackburn.)

This is a storming start. The closest year to 2020 at this stage is 2008

 

In order to keep ahead of 2008 there needs to be an eighth hit before 27th May

 

Considering the talent on the team and the underlying conditions in the environment I think that should be doable

We are now ahead of any recent years and will be for about the next three weeks

There is an updated version of this?
