2013 Celebrity Death Pool

#1 Post by knarf » 04 Dec 2012, 21:00

Each entrant selects 13 people that are listed in IMDb with at least one movie credit (TV movies and straight-to-video are acceptable, mini-series do not count, unless IMDb lists them as a TV movie) as an Actor, Actress, Director, Himself, or Herself. That should make quite a few politicians, athletes and musicians available as well.

PM the list to me between now and Dec. 31, with Death Pool or something similar in the subject. I will not read these until 2013, and will then post everyone's entries. I'm entering too, but I won't look at yours before I've settled on mine. If you want to make changes before the deadline, please send a complete list, and I'll go by the last one I receive. If someone you've picked dies before 2012 ends, its your responsibility to make the change, or they'll remain in your list for no value.

Your score for each accurate guess will be 120 minus the age in full years of the deceased. If there's any conflict, I will go by the birthdate listed at IMDb. If that isn't present for some reason, I'll try to find it elsewhere.

Deaths qualify as being in 2013 by whatever timezone the person dies in. This should only matter on January 1 and December 31.

Damnit. I rarely ever check quizwise. Now I'm a day short for one of the only things in here I care about. That's two years in a row that I've missed out. Somebody please do me a favor and remind me about this game next year a couple of days before the deadline.
The :) means it's all ok.

So, if it turned out Chavez died in 2012 and nobody knew, does he count for 2013?

I'd have to say no. But if the "official" day is in 2013, it should still be counted.
