    Default 2014 Celebrity Death Pool

    The Rules:

    1. You pick 10 celebrities whom you predict will die within the calendar year 2014. For each of your picks who dies, you score 100 points minus their age at death. Whoever has the most points at the end of the year wins.

    2. All picks must be made prior to January 1, 2014.

    3. You can pick people who are 100 or more years old but you won't score points for them. See the "Quantity Not Quality" award, below.

    4. Your picks must specify a name: listing "anybody from [the cast of your most hated TV show or boy band]" as a pick will be ignored.

    5. Persons under sentence of death will be valid for scoring points only if they die by means other than official execution.

    6. Any poster who kills or otherwise contributes to the death of any celebrity mentioned in this thread is disqualified.

    7. Editing your choices: You can make changes to your list before the end of the year, but it has to be clear which names are your final choices. It might be advisable to submit one or more "alternates" with your list, in the event that one of your picks dies during December 2013.

    Good luck.

    If we guess the cause of death correctly do we get bonus points? Especially if they were not ill before posting our choices?

"The Ghoulkeeper," nickname of the person running the pool, decided to shut it down right after the terrorist attacks against the U.S. on September 11th, 2001. That pool wasn't as complex as this one. In that pool each person simply selected one celebrity to kick the bucket. When someone's selection passed away they won. Then the pool would start from scratch and everyone would choose again. This is a better pool! I'd like to play. Picks coming soon....
    Glad you like it!
    Buried here in the archives, you can probably find our past Celebrity Death Pools. I don't believe we had one for 2013.

    It's really sad about Paul Walker...from what I hear, he was a really nice person (and btw, would have been worth 60 points.)

    umm, are you gonna make a list?
    and would Paul Walker be worth 60 because he was only 40?
    also, no, we did not have one for 2013, cuz you were not here much in late 2012, I'm guessing

    Yes, the younger the celebrity, the more points you earn. 100 - the age at death = # of points.

    And yes..I'm going to make a list!
