    It's been a while since we've done one of these and we've had some people die so far in 2019 : ) Anybody interested in doing one?

    Rules:

    You get points based on the age of the person you select should they die, for example Charlie Sheen is 53 years old, you would subtract 53 from 100 and that leaves you with 47 points. Martin Sheen is 78, you would subtract 78 from 100 and that leaves you with 22.

    The person selected must be a celebrity, politician or athlete. No terrorists, no people on death row and no animals. There would be a panel of THREE VOLUNTEERS who would be interested in being an admin to determine whether or not the selected person qualifies as a celebrity. For example nobody knows who the drummer of some crappy band is but everyone knows who the drummer of Def Leppard is. Obviously these things are subjective which is why I would have 3 well known posters to help judge.

    You will get 5 picks and the pool will end on January 1, 2020.

    There would be a snake draft and you will have 10 hours from the time the last pick is made. Should you miss your pick you will have to wait until the end of the round to pick and should you miss twice you will be removed and your picks will be forfeited and cannot be picked up by any other players.

    Any other suggestions would be awesome.... think something like this makes for a more interesting time between today and the time FA and the draft.

    Thanks for the reminder:

    - 10 bonus points for 'first blood'

    - 25 bonus points for 'first blood' if they off themselves

    As with previous death pools give a "10 party" limit?

    Last year we all said we should get it going multiple times, then for some reason we never did anything about it haha. Can't believe the whole year went by.

    Sure. . Better yet, .Skype the dirty deed in an Applebee's parking lot and it's "game, set and match - you" for the full '100'
