I'll update this later today, incorporating the bonuses outstanding.

Firstly, I'd like to congratulate every entrant as Akihito was picked by no-one and survived the year. So, like, everybody is a winner, of sorts....(Yeah, this is the sort of thing a teacher says at Sports Day!). Anyway on to the final table.

 

So the outstanding bonuses are:

 

+4 if the number of deaths you predict matches the actual number of deaths EDIT for clarity: by which I mean the number of names in your list matches the actual number of deaths

+2 if you only miss the correct total number of deaths by 1

-2 if you miss the total number of deaths by more than 5

 

There were 20 Deaths in 2020.

 

So here we go:

 

Etushispushingupdaisies        +09        10      +2 (19 deaths predicted)

Deathray                                    +08         11      +0 (17 deaths predicted)

ThereWillBeDeaths                  +08         12      +0 (18 deaths predicted)

Buffalo Phil                               +07          8        -2 (9 deaths predicted)

gcreptile                                     +07        10       +0 (16 deaths predicted)

Grim Up North                           +07         9        -2 (12 deaths predicted)

Great Uncle Bulgaria                +06        10       +0 (15 deaths predicted)

The Quim Reaper                      +06        11       +0 (17 deaths predicted)

Banana                                       +05         10      +0 (16 deaths predicted)

Clorox Bleachman                    +05        9         +0 (16 deaths predicted)

nantonian2013                          +04        8         -2 (12 deaths predicted)

The Old Crem                            +04        10       +2 (19 deaths predicted)

Annami                                       +03        8         +0 (15 deaths predicted)

Book                                           +03         9         +0 (16 deaths predicted) 

chilean way                               +03         9         +0 (18 deaths predicted)   

RadGuy                                       +03        8         +0 (15 deaths predicted) 

Skinny Kiltrunner                     +03         7          -2  (12 deaths predicted)

msc                                             +02        9         +2 (19 deaths predicted)

theoldlady                                  +02        10       +2 (21 deaths predicted) 

Bibliogryphon                            +01        7         +0 (15 deaths predicted)

Captain Chorizo                        +01        8         +0 (17 deaths predicted)  

dean1991                                   +01        6         -2 (9 deaths predicted)

DeathClock                                +01        8         -2 (13 deaths predicted) 

Sir Creep                                     +01       6         -2 (11 deaths predicted)

Zefph                                           +01        8        -2 (14 deaths predicted)

Torva Messor                            +00        9        +0 (18 deaths predicted) 

Newjack                                      -01        6        +0 (15 deaths predicted)

Joey Russ                                  -02         6        +0 (17 deaths predicted)   

LizLemon                                    -03       6         +0 (15 deaths predicted)

paddyfool                                   -06         5        -2 (13 deaths predicted)

 

So I'm declaring Etushispuhingupdaisies (good luck with the Hall of Fame, @msc!! Thought Khrushchev was bad?), with Deathray and ThereWillBeDeaths taking equal second (no third place awarded.

 

Well done to our winner (yeah, I'm only typing that once more!). Haven't decided whether to take this forward, but paddyfool is welcome to take it back for this year, as inventor he deserves first refusal.

 

Huzzah!

Pretty pleased with hitting with more than 90% of my picks.... just a shame I was over 100% away from the actual number!

No problem.

 

Go on paddyfool, take it back and make a new game (remember that tricky double bonus needs to be addressed).I believe adding in those "deaths predicted" bonuses at the end rather than through the game made it easier to run. 

 

I think I was lucky (unlucky?) to get a record breaking year! Should be less of a chore this year? (I actually think this is the most in line with my thinking Deathlist ever and think it's a solid 15 hits, maybe slightly more).

Good stuff!

 

Alas, I'm taking a break from many pools this year, so I'll not be entering. But I will always have "Winner of Inaugural Correctlist" to add to my achievements on the Forum.

 

Which makes it my one and only achievement (if you don't count predicting Princess Charlotte's birth date!).
