The aim of this is pretty simple, to pick 25 celebrities who you think will see out most of 2014 and then kick the bucket in December, preferably December 31st 2014. The aim is to be the person with the most points on December 31st 2014, although finally tallies will continue to be amended in the case of new year reports of people who died before the years end until January 31st when the list will be frozen in time.

The Rules
  • All picks must be humans aged over 18 on January 1st 2014.
  • Death row prisoners only score if they die of other causes, those still on trial will still score points if executed,
  • Celebrities qualify if they achieve an obituary or article about their death in a local, national or even specialist newspaper. or website/magazine/paper. If in doubt cite your death note for approval.
  • Entries must be posted by 1600 on December 31st 2013, no exceptions except if a pick dies post-deadline, they may be replaced until 1200 on January 1st 2014 provided the replacement hasn't died between 0000-1200 on January 1st 2014.
  • Murdering your chosen "celebrities" is both against the rules and illegal.
  • Celebrities are disqualified if they are a celebrity because of their impending death.
  • All entries must be posted in this thread or PMed to me, they'll then be posted in this thread as one post.
Scoring

1 Point for each day of the year that passes before your celebs death (if they die on the 10th of January you are awarded 9 points for example).
250 point bonus if one of your "celebrities" dies on 31st December 2014 (i.e a 31st death will score 565 points)
Pick 1 of your celebrities as a wild card to double the points for that pick upon their death. (i.e if they die on the 9th you'll get 16 points)
500 point bonus if your entire list perish of this mortal coil in 2014.

So let the games begin who do you think will very nearly make it to 2015 but alas lose out?

Teams available in post 36.

Captain Chorizo 1164 points

Bit similar to MPFC's game?
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

It's the opposite, you're aiming for people who'll last until the end of the year rather than people who will croak in the first week, so you should be picking different people. For mpfc it makes sense to pick the 3 months to live brigade for this it doesn't.

Absolutely, the whole point here is that they only score if they die, and assuming they die, they get a point for every day of 2014 that they lived. So Mandela would be a big hitter this year, Biggs a non-event (probably), I may well give this a go and line up some vulnerable types famed for general coffin dodging - Gazza, Clive James etc.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Vulnerable coffin dodgers sounds like a decent tactic.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Reet, I'm in.

Had some agonising over this one. I mean, do you go for the perenniel hangers on like Run Run Shaw or pack the team with nailed-on death (like Wilko Johnson) on the basis of assuring some points.

Just PM'd yers with the 20, let battle commence.
