Professor Hawking was not on the list, so no one has to take the pyrrhic point.

She's not on the list, but Margot Kidder left for Krypton on Sunday.

Well Phillip Roth isn't on the list, and GHWBush seems to have dodged another bullet.

So the score is still tied:

Friendly Angel        0
Morvis                   0
Tassie Dave           1
DevoutCatalyst      0
Brilligtove              1

3 way tie now with Devout Catalyst scoring with John McCain


I have a thought, (for consideration), how the scoring could be made more dynamic for future years and more easily avoid ties, if the same format is played:
Players could score points for where they positioned the deceased. With the lowest score at the end of the year the winner.
It makes every death a score (good or bad) for every player.

A reasonable suggestion. Perhaps you get N-I points for each death where N is the number of people in the list and I is where you had the person in the list? For example, I had McCain at 40/50 so I'd get 50-40=10.

I like TD's idea also, and nominate him to run this game for 2019.  Hell, we might only need to replace 3 names for the new list.
