View Full Version : 2013 Celebrity Death Pool

It's time to get ready for the 7th annual Celebrity Death Pool! Start compiling your lists for 2013. Rules are:

- Pick 25 celebrities that you think may pass away during 2013.
- Points are earned based on age. 100 minus their age. So if someone on your list dies and was 88 years old, you earn 12 points. If someone was 24, you earn 76 points.
- Celebrities are allowed per my approval. They need to be pretty well known. George Clooney's nephew does not count, but Michael Lohan would be allowed.
- No terrorists allowed. OBL or Saddam was one thing, but if you have Al Qaeda's top 25 most wanted for your list, that's not going to work.
- Winner will receive a prize TBD.

- Send completed lists to me here via PM. Lists will be accepted through Jan 2nd, 2013. Let me know if you have any questions.

- We've had over 20 participants the past 4 years. Let's make it even more this year! We've only had 2 champs in this game. Myself in 2007, 2008, and 2012 (if standings hold for the next 3 weeks) and batista4goldglove in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Who's going to beat us?!?!

In my world he's very famous, and his 'victory' over the 'cold war Soveit Union' (in 1958) was as great as the U.S. hockey victory in 1980; again, in my world. Wouldn't be truly surprising someone else was familiar with him. However, he was a very famous person that announced in late August that he had bone cancer. wouldn't take much, when compiling a death list, to google 'famous people with cancer' and come up with a few notables to put on one's list.
