Rules for game:
Select a team roster of 20 celebrities. Sign-up and picks
open Thanksgiving - Dec.31 of year prior to game, eligible for prizes. (since this is a US based game we try to get everyone here until the very last moment to join. So we go by Hawaii time which is the last to turn midnight.)
Rosters entered Jan. 1 to Thanksgiving will not be competing for prizes in any year, but may join along.
A death must be confirmed by name in the Associated Press, so
stick to celebs and other high profile individuals.
Player is responsible for own picks. So if pick is already dead,
illegal pick or doesn't make headlines; player will be able to make changes up until Jan.1 of game
An illegal pick shall be defined by the following:
5 a. Each roster my only have one each of a particular person.
If a duplicate dies, the roster will only be awarded once for
5 b. No one on death row prior to start of year. (You are
fine if you pick them before they make death row, and that death
sentencing occurs after Jan.1 of year's game)
i.e. Timothy McVeigh was sentenced Dec.28, 2000 so even if you
picked him on Dec.25, 2000 for Deadpool2002 he still wouldn't
have been a valid choice.
6. Scoring will be based on 100 minus age. Minimum 1 point.
Team with the most points by 12:00 midnight of that years game, wins.
6a. In the event of a tie, the following criteria will be used
to select a winner amongst the tied teams; total number of deaths
predicted , if teams are still tied, youngest person on team to
die. If a tie persists, then Co-winners will be declared.
The deadpool shall not be held responsible for any errors in awarding
of prizes. And no refunds for entry fees will be offered.
