2019 Celebrity Death Game
« on: December 21, 2018, 02:55:30 PM »
Since no-one else has volunteered, I will kick off next year's game.

It will be similar to the currently running game with a few scoring changes to make every death (on the list) worth points to every player.
I will use the same list as Friendly Angel's. Adding 4 new names to replace the 4 deceased celebrities. If any person on the list dies between now and the end of the year, I will replace them with another name that can be placed anywhere you like on your list

Rank the 50 celebrities in order from 1 to 50. With 1 (Top) being the most likely to die and 50 (Bottom) being the least likely.
Scoring will be (51-R). Where R=where you ranked the celebrity.
Top of your list will be worth 50 Points. Bottom of your list will only be worth 1 point.

As per a suggestion by brilligtove there will be incentive to place younger celebrities higher.
There will be a bonus 20 points for whoever ranks the youngest person to die, highest on their list
There will be a bonus 10 points for whoever ranks the 2nd youngest person to die, highest on their list
There will be a bonus 5 points for whoever ranks the 3rd youngest person to die highest on their list
If more than 1 person ranks a celebrity highest then those bonus points will be divided between them.

Obviously the bonus points will apply at the end of the year. I will add them provisionally as each celebrity dies, and adjust them if a younger celebrity dies.

I will be adding each players list to the spreadsheet linked below.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OPkAca9WNMmnUD-iz9LqF1zzRc7SIXWIUoXOezMT2v8/edit?usp=sharing

A little bit of good news on the impending celebrity death watch

Australian media has been speculating that Olivia Newton-John was worse that people though and had only a few weeks to live.

ONJ responded as only she could  ;) she's not 100% and still has a long battle ahead, but at least she can stay upbeat and joke about the speculation.

Olivia isn't my style, but she's blessed with a nice set of pipes!
