SCAVENGER HUNT BINGO DEADPOOL RULES

Each player picks five selections in each of five categories (for categories see below).

 

There are three ways to win

 

1.       You get at least one hit in each of the five categories

2.       You get all five hits in one category

3.       You get three unique hits across the whole game.

 

There is no fixed duration you play until there is a winner.

In the event of a tie number of uniques will be the next determiner followed by total number of hits across all categories.

Obits will not be stringent (more akin to Deathrace requirements). However the Game Controller will be checking that picks meet the category criteria at the start of the game.

 

A unique pick is considered unique in category. For example if two categories were Conservative MPs and Contestants on Strictly Come Dancing/Dancing with the Stars and three players picked Edwina Curry in the first category and the fourth player picked her in the second category. If she eggspired then Player 4 would get a unique bonus.

 

When a winner is declared the selection of the next categories passes to the victor and they get to select the new categories. The winner may opt to pass or play on the organisation of the game. If they pass I will run the game based on their selections or they can take the whole thing.

The Categories for the third game are:

 

1. Any actor (gender neutral term) who has appeared in an official EON James Bond film between Dr No & No Time To Die (

2. Any player who was part of a FIFA Men's World Cup Finals squad (don't have to have played in the tournament) 

3. Anyone who has won a Nobel Prize in any category

4. Any human deemed to have achieved spaceflight (according to this wiki list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_astronauts_by_first_flight )

5. Any on-stage performer for a country in a Eurovision Grand Final.

 

Teams must be PM’d to avoid revealing those unique picks.

 

There will be a two week period at the beginning of September after the lists are published for disputes to be settled people whose picks are removed at this point will be allowed replacements but will not be allowed to pick another person's unique pick.

Starting Date is 01 September 2020

All PM's to me.

 

Please feel free to include a sixth pick in each category in case of any issues

 

These sixth picks will not need to abide by the not taking another person's unique as they will be submitted before the lists are published so could still be played if one of the other five is challenged

Hi Could an admin change the title to include III after the name to avoid confusion with the earlier topics?

 

Sub heading should have an apostraphe

Either they were favourable categories or you didn't put much effort in! :lol:

Eurovision and Bond were easy, FIFA some usual suspects, Nobel's more a shot in the dark.

 

The Wiki list for space flyers - dropped a pin in 5 plus one sub!

 

Took 2 and a half hours. Now they just need to survive for 6 weeks - I'll bet I lose a few, though that's why I'm confident - when I pick them it's generally a gift of immortality.

Don't know how much effort you put in last time, but your record on Scavenger Hunts 1 and 2 is currently 13/50 dead (and the first one started in 2016!) Good luck. :D

I have a friend who is interested in this game, but he isn't registered on the forum and wouldn't do it as he has a phobia about signing up to things on the internet.   Would it be permissible to submit his team by proxy in the (unlikely) event that he gets one together?

Two slices of Toast?

 

Don't mind if I do....

 

How's that going to work for you, though? He gives you a team and it's open for snaffles...though I believe Toast is an honourable person. ;)

Let's put it this way...I expect at least 3 of my 5 Eurovisions to die within a year.

 

Expectations are never lived up to though, ha!

Well, music is one area Willz is quite good at sniffing out possibles. He got ahead of everyone else on the Ranking Rogers ill health news before anyone else.

It would be no fun at all to steal his picks.  I doubt he'll get round to it anyway, just thought I'd ask in case.

I'd have no problem with it, after all didn't someone else get a team for one of their kids in another pool?

0/5 Grammy Winners dead thus far for @YoungWillz and 1/5 #1 Hit Artists dead (that one after the game had finished). #justsayin :lol:

 

Still, if you can't be optimistic before the game has started when can you be? Good luck, Willz, maybe it's your time!

Yeah, music biz is full of spiteful people determined to live!

 

Ranking Roger was pure speculation - extremely ill about June or July the previous year, but his condition didn't escalate to possible and then ultimate terminal status until the year I picked him.

Two separate people have asked me the same question on James Bond films.

 

Uncredited appearances are acceptable if they are backed up on either Wikipedia or IMDB.

This is the one month countdown. I have five teams in already but full verification has not started yet. August is your month of research for this most unpredictable of Deadpools
