2012 Dead Pool

It’s time to, once again, root on some celebrities to kick the bucket.

Here are the rules:

Each player submits a numeric list of 10 celebrities they think will kick it in 2012. The order listed determines the points available.

ie:

1. Celeb A (10 points)
2. Celeb B (9 points)
3. Celeb C (8 points)
4. Celeb D (7 points)
5. Celeb E (6 points)
6. Celeb F (5 points)
7. Celeb G (4 points)
8. Celeb H (3 points)
9. Celeb I (2 points)
10. Celeb J (1 point)

If a celebrity on your list shuffles off, you may then replace them in the same numeric spot on the list with another name not already on your list. EJSIC is NOT responsible for replacement picks that go unpicked. All participants are responsible for giving a replacement pick in the comments section below or via the EJSIC message board once their pick requires a replacement.

This year, there will be an added 10 point bonus awarded for any correct pick made of celebrity under the age of 40 who actually dies. The bonus points will be given in addition to the points from one’s list.

All submissions need to be posted by 11:59:59pm on January 6, 2012. All picks at that time are final. Picks prior to that deadline can be edited. Play continues until the end of December. Player with the most points at the end of 2012 wins*.

Any correct picks before the deadline DO NOT COUNT. No exceptions.

Get out there and pick some winners!

5 thoughts on “2012 Dead Pool

  1. Sprry I missed the deadline gang. Getting prepared for a new baby and have pretty much spent the last week tearing apart my house – jut snow beginning to reassemble. If I would have put together a list in time this year, it would have been: 1) Etta James, 2) Zsa Zsa Gabor, 3) Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi, 4) Robin Gibb, and 5) Billy Graham. Good luck to all!

  2. Oh, and 6-10 would have been 6) Stan Musial, 7) Marcia Strassman, 8) Ronnie Biggs, 9) Annette Funicello, 10) Abagail Van Buren (Dear Abby)
