2013 CELEBRITY DEAD POOL!!!

Postby Minneapolitan » 19 Dec 2012, 01:18

Who's going to "kick the bucket" in 2013? Pick TEN celebrities you think will die. Whoever has the most correct picks at the end of 2013 wins! Be sure to spread the word about this Dead Pool before January 1st, 2013!

Rules of the Dead Pool

1. The game ends at 11:59pm, December 31, 2013.

2. All picks must have some element of celebrity, fame or political relevance so that an announcement will be mentioned in some credible news source.

3. No pick may be currently under a state-mandated death sentence, nor may their celebrity or fame be based solely on their moribund state or terminal illness.

4. You may choose less than ten celebrities, but may NOT choose more than ten. Multiple individuals under one name will not be allowed (i.e. The Rolling Stones).

5. No pick may be older than 99 years of age as of December 31, 2012. All picks must be human.

6. In the unlikely event of a tie, the ages of the dead celebrities picked will be averaged. The player with the YOUNGEST average wins. However, this matters little if your celebrities don't die! So pick wisely.

Notes

- You are allowed to change your picks at any time before January 1st, 2013. Everyone can see when a post has been edited, so any list of celebrities submitted after 11:59pm, December 31st, 2012, will be disqualified. Because players live in different time zones, I will go by each player's zone (this likely won't be an issue).

- If you have questions about the validity of a celebrity, send a private message to Minneapolitan (me).

- If rumors exist about an actual date of death, I will go by the date most agreed upon by the press.

- I keep a close watch daily for dead celebrities, and I will make the official announcements of death.

- Previous Dead Pools: 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009.

Rolan won't let that happen. He'll wait until everyone else has given up on her.
