Pie & Bovril Dead Pool 2019

Recommended Posts

Quote

And maybe it's treacherous old age coming on, threatening the worst. Not much music left inside us for life to dance to. Our youth has gone to the ends of the earth to die in the silence of the truth. And where, I ask you, can a man escape to, when he hasn't enough madness left inside him? The truth is an endless death agony. The truth is death. You have to choose; death or lies. I've never been able to kill myself. - Louis-Ferdinand Celine

 

 
Another year, another P&B Dead Pool. Like the Pyramids and Junior Football no-one quite remembers how or why it appeared, but everyone still goes along with it faithfully. Well, we're probably more popular than the Juniors.
 
If you're unfamiliar with the premise of a Dead Pool, it's quite simple. You pick fifteen celebrities you think will die over the course of the coming calendar year (2019). If you're correct, you get points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the year wins, and whoever finishes bottom gets invited to Buckingham Palace to share your secrets with our reptilian overlords.
If you're morbid enough to still be interested...
 
RULES:
  • To enter, you must be registered on Pie & Bovril before this thread was posted.
  • To enter, send me a private message containing the names of 15 celebrities you think will die in 2019. To make it as easy as possible for me and limit the possibility of mistakes, please try to spell their names correctly. If they use alternate names, please make a note of this. Reasons for a person's fame are welcome.
  • For the purposes of eligibility, your PM must be sent to me by 00:00 GMT, January 1, 2019. The game will officially end on 00:00 GMT, January 1, 2020. 
  • Despite this, if someone dies in a different time zone, the local time and date will be considered instead.
  • In order to be eligible upon death, your entrants must receive an obituary in a UK-based national news source. Websites concerning a niche interest do not count in this instance - it must be a mainstream news source. If you pick someone obscure or non-British, you may have to find and post a qualifying obituary.
  • The Lauren Hill Rule - American college sports personalities are not eligible.
  • The Liz Taylor Rule - Is someone a celebrity if their child or spouse or relative is famous? Probably not. If they don't have a Wikipedia page and their only claim to fame is a well-known relation, they don't count.
  • The Terminal Rule - People who are famous specifically for being ill are not eligible.
  • The World's Greatest Democracy Rule - People who are on death row or facing trial where the death penalty is a mooted sentence are not eligible. Fugitives on the run are eligible.
  • Your entrants must be human.
  • Your entrants must be over the age of 18.
  • Your entrants cannot be fictional characters.
  • You are not allowed to kill any of your entrants yourself. If a P&B user is found to be responsible for the death of any of their entrants, they will be disqualified from this and all future Dead Pools.
  • You are not allowed to select any P&B members. If, upon death, it emerges that a celebrity was a P&B poster, this is allowed.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure all of your entrants are alive. Don't do what someone did last year and pick Bobby Moore (d.1993).
  • If you pick someone who dies in the final days of 2018 it is your responsibility to PM me with a replacement pick. If you include a small list of reserves in your message, I will make the substitution.
  • Scores will be updated and posted, hopefully, every Sunday.
 
SCORING:
  • Base Points: Each death is worth 125 points minus the person's age. So the younger your picks, the more points if they die.
  • There are several multipliers available:
  • First Blood - The first person to die in 2019 gets 25 extra points.
  • Last Gasp - The last person to die in 2019 gets 25 extra points.
  • Solo Shot - If you are the only person to pick someone who dies you get a bonus of 50 points.
  • Deadly Duo - Same premise. If only two people pick someone who dies, you both get a bonus of 25 points.
  • Captain Bonus - You can nominate a captain of your team who receives an extra set of Base Points added to their score.
  • Inherent Vice - You can nominate a vice-captain of your team who receives an extra set of half Base Points (rounded up) added to their score.
  • (If you do not nominate Captains or Vice-captain, I will consider the first and second respective names on your list to be your nominations)
  • Deadly December - Same as Captain Bonus, an extra set of Base Points.
  • Unnatural Causes - If your pick is murdered, commits suicide or has an accident, you get 30 extra points.
  • The Shakespearean Hitler Bonus - If your pick dies on their birthday you get bonus points amounting to their age minus the date of their birthday. So if they're 80 and die on the 25th, you get 55 extra points. If the bonus amounts to a negative points addition, it won't be applied.
  • The 'Nice' Bonus - If your pick dies in a sex accident, you get 69 extra points.

 

Most people have a reasonable understanding of how the Dead Pool works so if you do have any more questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them. With nothing else for me to say, GOOD LUCK!

Good to see the P&B Dead Pool isn't going to die a death with Spain handing the reigns over.

Clarification @Miguel Sanchez last year your pick was deemed legitimate if they had a Wikipedia page OR an IMDB page, this year you have just referenced Wikipedia. Is IMDB still considered or is it just Wikipedia this year?

Two of my potential troops depend on your answer.

Will they still qualify under:

  • In order to be eligible upon death, your entrants must receive an obituary in a UK-based national news source. Websites concerning a niche interest do not count in this instance - it must be a mainstream news source. If you pick someone obscure or non-British, you may have to find and post a qualifying obituary.

Ah Miguel, I hope you keep message box empty on Hogmanay as I have my traditional oh f**k I forgot moment and pick 13 odd potentials and 2 predeceased as encouragement to the rest of the team.

I believe so. I will go on the assumption that they will and if they don't then we can just put it down as my own stupid fault. Cheers Miguel.

Sorry, I realised when I went off last night that that wasn't really an answer. If they have the national obituary and have legitimate achievement of their own which isn't linked solely to their famous relation, they should be eligible.
