2018 Celebrity Death Game
« on: February 07, 2018, 03:22:55 PM »
OK - I'm in charge now.
Here's a list of 50 celebs that have a good chance of passing away soon.
If you want to play, copy them into a spreadsheet and sort them into the order you predict them to die, and post back - I'll keep track on the master spreadsheet.
The scoring will go like this:
Celeb X dies, whichever player has that celeb with the lowest number gets one point.  Ties will get fractional points. 
So the initial buy in will take a few minutes, but list upkeep will be simple and fast for me, and we should have enough deaths to keep the game rolling.

This list sorted alphabetically for convenience.  I found it somewhere - no thought went into it at all.  I didn't even check to make sure they're all still with us.
