Death Race 2018

Death Race 14 - 2018 Edition
Rules:
1) Pick TWENTY celebrities who you think are going to pop their clogs in 2018.
2) The only restrictions are that they have to be real people, 18+, and can’t be on death row / scheduled for execution.
3) The score you get for a death depends on the celebrity’s AGE as follows:
18-29 years: 12 points
30-49 years: 10 points
50-59 years: 9 points
60-69 years: 8 points
70-79 years: 7 points
80-89 years: 6 points
90-99 years: 5 points
100-109 years: 4 points
110+ years: 3 points

4) BONUS points are awarded as follows:
Unique pick: +3 if you were the only competitor to pick that person.
Unlucky 13: +2 for a celeb who dies on the 13th of any month.
Unnatural causes: +3 for murder, suicide or accident (but not State executions).
Party pooper: +5 for a celeb who dies on their birthday or Xmas Day (date of death is that of the region where they died).
Joker: Nominate one of your celebs as joker - if your joker dies you get double points for that person.

5) They must be famous enough to get a major news website obituary or to have a wikipedia entry that isn’t a stub
6) In the event of a tie, the following criteria is used in this order:
a) The most correctly-chosen deceased celebs.
b) The youngest average age of hits.
c) The first to score points that year.

7) The deadline is end of Jan (but we won’t be too strict with that)
8) Remember to check that your entrants aren’t already dead
9) Committing murder is cheating
10) Good luck! :-)
HALL OF FAME / SHAME:
2005: Deadsetgav
2006: Ci? (Lola)

Terrible news about Dolores O’Riordan. Shocking. I think she had youngish kids. What a voice. “Everyone else…” is a favourite album of mine. I remember seeing both Dolores O’Riordan and Harriet Wheeler singing live within a few weeks of each other in Dublin.. both amazing voices

RIP. That’s a weird one. I loved them when they first came out. Had the first 3 albums. Saw them support REM in 1995. Zombie was pretty much the first song I learned to play on guitar - and I always taught it to other beginners
as it’s quite a simple song for a beginner to learn.
RIP.

^ that’s an interesting idea. Or perhaps where you have to tag a certain amount, say, a half of your picks as ‘unique’ so they can’t be repeated.

It’s a gamble in death race… the longer you leave it in Jan, the less likely other people are to pick your picks. But every day you wait is another day of possible death that you’re missing out on haha

Just you I'm afraid! (I think?)

Moldenwibe had Burt Reynolds, so Molden moves up to joint 1st with Cuchulain.

That bumps you and Chr1s down to joint 3rd, cos there's 2 people ahead of you both
