Right I thought this was going to be easy with months between hits! Jeez Louise, whoever she is!

 

Subject to correction I'll provisionally update here for Kirk Douglas:

 

Hits for Skinny Kiltrunner, msc (3rd hit); Banana (3rd hit); theoldlady (3rd hit); Deathray; ThereWillBeDeaths (3rd hit); gcreptile (3rd Hit); Zefph (3rd hit); Book (3rd Hit); Etishispushingupdaisies (3rd hit); RadGuy (3rd hit); Buffalo Phil (3rd hit); Torva Messor (3rd hit); chilean way (Joker); Annami; paddyfool; Grim Up North (Joker);  Great Uncle Bulgaria.

 

So if I have this correct, +2 for the hit, if you have a 3rd hit extra +1. Both Jokers only have 2 hits so your hit total is doubled to +4. Cue paddyfool's entrance....

That's another miss for me. Also, 5 hits so far is a good outlook for those betting on a high total... so also not a good outlook for my guess of 13 in total.

 

EDIT: Very impressed by Radguy's 5 for 5, however.

You're going to hate me YoungWillz... but have you updated the scores by removing the -2 penalty for being more than 5 out from the total for those who've got within 5 of their total? Because, for instance, dean1991 should probably have gone up by 2 when Mubarak died... unless you're waiting for the end of the year to factor this in?

 

(I apologise for having designed an excessively complex scoring system).

Hmm.

 

Dean picked 9 hits. By my reckoning on the system, he needs to get 4 correct hits to be 5 out.

 

Now what you are suggesting is that it doesn't matter how many hits a player predicts correctly (i.e. Correctlist), the actual number of hits determines whether the penalty is removed. Now that becomes incredibly complex. Incredibly. I think it's only fair if the correctly predicted number of hits falls within the actual number, and certainly the rules can be read that way.

 

What say you? Will it matter?

Eh, the point was to reward guessing the correct number of deaths independently of whether the individual guesses are correct.  It was a nuisance to update, though, even though it didn't interact with the joker... maybe leave it until the end of the year and update that bonus all at once?

I think I will have to leave it to the end. Might lead to some huge last minute swings, but hey, it'll be more exciting!

More than halfway to my prediction of 9 deaths, on the 5th March. I may have gone a little low...

Update for P-Orridge

 

Hits for Clorox Bleachman (4th Hit +Joker); Skinny Kiltrunner (3rd Hit); msc (4th Hit); DeathClock (3rd Hit); Banana (5th Hit); theoldlady (4th Hit); Deathray (3rd Hit); gcreptile (5th Hit +Joker); Joey Russ (3rd Hit + Joker); Bibliogryphon (3rd Hit); Book (5th Hit); Etushispushingupdaisies (5th Hit); The Quim Reaper (4th Hit); RadGuy (6th Hit); Buffalo Phil (4th Hit); Torva Messor (4th Hit);  chilean way (5th Hit); nantonian (2nd Hit); Captain Chorizo (4th Hit); Annami (4th Hit + Joker); LizLemon (3rd Hit); The Old Crem (4th Hit); Grim Up North (4th Hit); Great Uncle Bulgaria (3rd Hit); Newjack (2nd Hit).

 

For now Buffalo Phil is breaking even.

 

RadGuy hits again and is the only player 6 for 6. Can he ever fail?

 

Joey Russ by hitting his Joker on the 3rd hit doubles the extra point bonus, hence his jump in the standings. (Yeah, getting lucky seems to part of this game, and one of paddyfool's regrets comes into play).

So I design a game, and then it turns out I'm not very good at it.  (Just 2 hits out of 7 deaths so far).

Those previously on 5 and 6 hits didn't have Moss, which ironically makes it more of a race!

This looks terribly exciting. I have only faint traces of remembering entering, and no clue what the scores mean, but I'm doing well, right?

Nobody really knows, ha!

 

At the end there will be adjustments for various bonuses. All depends on the total horror of death for 2020.

 

I thought this would be a nice easy game to run, turned into part time job!
