The 2018 Kim Jong-il's Uncle Memorial Dead Pool

Welcome one and all to this year's Dead Pool. Rules in first post.

All new players welcome. The rules are simple: ten choices, one your Joker (double points). You get 100 - your choice's age if they die (e.g. if they are 56, you will get 44 points). Choices made up to January 7th will be active immediately; after that, we return to the usual anti-ambulance-chasing rule of a one-week wait until you get the points.

If you made new selections on the old thread, I will amend the google doc accordingly. If you want to continue with last year's choices, just let me know here. If you want to play for the first time, post your selections here.

I'll ask the mods to post a link to the google doc listing selections when it's ready. I'll also ask to have the old thread closed.

How many popes are there?


I believe the preferred formatting is all names on a single line, with the joker at the end.

cozzer - 30 Dec 2017 13:51:25 (#18 of 3936)

Like what MsChardonnay did.

LemonGrass - 30 Dec 2017 13:52:40 (#19 of 3936)

Valerie Harper will never die. I am going to abandon her for next year. She is fools gold for the deapooler.
