Celebrity Dead Pool


Recommended Posts

So, who wants to play then? I know it's halfway through the year, but there's still plenty time.

Basically, you pick a team of celebrities, and you get points if some of them die.

The rules, lifted from derbydeadpool.com


Pick 20 different celebrities who are alive, but who, in your opinion, will no longer be with us by 31st December 2010. Celebrities can be of any age, and can be suffering from illness.

Nominate one of them as your "joker".

For each celeb demise that you guess correctly, you'll score points, and if your joker sadly passes away, your grief will be alleviated by the fact that you'll score double points.

The team with the most points at the end of the year will, unsurprisingly, be deemed to be the winner.

In the event of a dead heat on points, the winner will be selected according to the following criteria, applied in this order:

-The most hits (i.e. correctly-chosen deceased celebs).

-The youngest average age of hits.

-The most amusing team name.


All of your chosen celebs must be:


-At least 18 years old at time of selection.

-Not on any form of "Death Row" or scheduled for execution.

-Actual real-life people, not characters out of soap operas and the like.

-All entries must be celebrities. Your Great Aunt Jenny doesn't count

-Named individuals, not just "Pope Wotsisface" or "the oldest person in the world".

-Players must not murder their chosen celebs. That's cheating, and cheating is wrong. Anyone caught breaking this rule will be disqualified from the game.


The value of the basic death depends on the person's age:

18-29 years: 12 points

30-49 years: 10 points

50-59 years: 9 points

60-69 years: 8 points

70-79 years: 7 points

80-89 years: 6 points

90-99 years: 5 points

100-109 years: 4 points

110+ years: 3 points

On top of this, bonus points are awarded as follows:

Unique pick: +3 if you were the only competitor to pick that person.

Unlucky 13: +2 for a celeb who dies on the 13th of any month.

Unnatural causes: +3 for murder, suicide or accident (but not State executions).

Party pooper: +5 for a celeb who dies on their birthday or Xmas Day.

Joker: Take the total of all the above and double it.

(All times and dates will relate to UK time)

That's my favourite team name so far...

Two Feet In The Grave

Ronnie Biggs

Isn't he already dead?

Lucius's Lucky Ladder (Of Death)

Christopher Lee

If he dies and then turns into a cloud of dust and then reforms again when no-one is looking that doesn't count.

I'd like to make a change to the rules if I may - instead of UK time, we'll go with local time in the place where they died - that's what will be on the official death certificate, and ergo what will be reported in the news and Wikipedia.

No. Ronnie Biggs was released from prison in 2009 by Jack Straw on compassionate grounds. He was not expected to live until Christmas. He is still living in a nursing home.

I had some good ideas for a few long shots after I went to bed last night actually.

Also, Paul Gascoigne has to be worth a punt too eh?
