2014 Dead Pool

After a slow start and a LOOONG dry spell, 2013 went out with a bang. If the celeb-death ball keeps rolling at this rate, we want to keep right on top of it. So, it’s time for the 2014 edition of the Dead Pool.

Here’s a reminder of the rules:

Each player submits a numeric list of 10 celebrities they think will kick it in 2014. 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 by sending capnwacky a personal message on the EJSIC message board once their pick requires a replacement.

As with years past, 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 delivered by 12:00:00am on January 1, 2014. All picks at that time are final. Picks prior to that deadline can be edited. Play continues until the end of December and the player with the most points at the end of 2014 “wins.”

Good luck to our players. Not so great luck to our picks.
