The 2018 Death pool
« on: November 29, 2017, 09:41:25 AM »
Guidelines are fairly straightforward.  You pick people you think won't make it out of 2018 alive, and I'll assign points (usually 1-3)based on age/health/likelihood to die, and we see who 'wins' at the end of the year.

FYI it is the linebacker. With as many concussions as he had you have to wonder.

I'd like to keep it at around a dozen or so.  This isn't meant to be serious so I don't want a hard cap, but I also don't want a repeat of when someone put in over 100 names.

Dozen sounds good. I think if we get too many, we should remove one in order to add another

You did see the part about getting negative points for picking recently dead and/or dying people, right?
