2012 - Scorge (TBC)

2013 - ???????

Want your name to go down in Aberdeen-Music folklore? Get your team in. Closing date for entries January 21st.

The Rules

Pick 20 different celebrities who are alive, but who, in your opinion, will no longer be with us by 31st December 2012.

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 be deemed 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.

OTHER RULES:

All of your chosen celebs must be:

-Human.

-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.

SCORING:

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.

First pick: +1 for being the first person to have that person in their team.

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

(All times and dates will relate to local time at place of death)

Last year I started the thread then put my team in straight away which gave me an unfair advantage because it meant that every person I picked I got the first pick bonus for.

Bigsby has beat you to the punch on t' other thread.

Happy new year everyone!

Yeah but I always put him in my list.

Other years he's been completely funked and survived, this year he's healthy.............and doomed!!

Also, which Billy Graham are you picking?

Wrestler "Superstar" Billy Graham or evangelist wanker Billy Graham?
