Default KCSR 2018 Celebrity Death Poll

So we've done this two years running. Each year only having about 4 or 5 participants. Let's really get it going this year with more competition! Please sticky!

Official Rules

Only approved celebrities will be allowed for picks. Per Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, a celebrity is “a famous or celebrated person”. Celebrity can be from the genre of sports, movies, music, TV, media, entertainment, radio, comedy, government (foreign and domestic), person of national/world interest, inventors, etc., but must be a known celebrity.

Picking the mayor of the little town you grew up in will not work, unless that person has received national attention.

Twenty (20) celebrities shall be picked.

Duration of the Funeral home (game time) will be from January 25th – December 31st.

When one of your celebrities dies, their age is deducted from 100 and the remainder is the amount of points you receive for that pick, plus any bonus points that may apply. If your dead pick is over 100 years old, you will be deducted a point for every year over the age of 100.

The basic formula is: (100 - Age) + All Applicable Bonus Points = Total Score

To receive points for your pick, the celebrity picked must die during game time.

If rulings on bonus points occur after game time, those bonus points will not apply.

Picking the same celebrity twice is not allowed.

Picking a celebrity on Death Row is not allowed.

Only human celebrities are allowed to be picked. No animals.

Conjoined twins shall be considered as one (1) pick for each twin.

Only one celebrity per pick. Example – You cannot pick a band, such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as much as some of us might want to.

Some celebrities have common, identical or similar names. It is helpful to be specific.

Spelling counts! Please try to spell celebrities' names correctly. Names that weren’t originally spelled in English can be tricky, I know, but if you aren’t sure of a name, try looking at what a major news outlet, like CNN or the BBC, uses.

Your list must show 0 edits.

Any poster who kills or otherwise contributes to the death of any celebrity mentioned in this thread is disqualified. It's just a game, people. The only exceptions to this rule would be deaths caused by those posters serving as members of the police or armed forces of any country, in the line of duty.

Posting Format


<Celebrity Name> - <Celebrity Profession> ie Bill Gates - Entrepreneur/Microsoft Founder

The Point System

The Magic Formula: (100 - Age) + All Applicable Bonus Points = Total Score
Example: If your pick was 105 years old AND it was a 'Solo Pick', you would get 20 points: (100 - 105) + 25 = 20

Bonus Points

25 Points: The Opening Kickoff
Awarded to the poster or posters who pick the first listed celebrity to die in 2016.

25 Points: The John Hinckley Jr
Awarded for being so obsessed with a celebrity you were the first to put them on your list and then they die (Has to be on more than one list to collect).

25 Points: The Site-Wide Solo Pick
Your Celebrity is not picked by anyone else site-wide.

25 Points: The Kurt Cobain
Celebrity dies from Suicide.

25 Points: The Amy Winehouse
Celebrity dies from an accidental drug or alcohol overdose. Confirmed by toxicology before the end of the Funeral home year.

25 Points: The Whitney Houston
A black Celebrity dies during Black History Month (February).

25 Points: The Bette Davis
Celebrity dies from breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).

25 Points: The Motherscratcher
Celebrity was born a Canadian. Awarded citizenship does not count.

50 Points: The John Lennon
Celebrity is murdered. For the purposes of this game "murder" is defined as being killed against your will, at the behest of another, regardless of the method of killing.
So, a terrorist killed in a drone strike counts as murder.

50 Points: The Machine Gun Kelly
Celebrity dies on their birthday.

50 Points: The Lynyrd Skynyrd
Celebrity dies in an aircraft crash: Plane, Helicopter, Balloon, Hang Glider, Space Shuttle.

50 Points: The Daily Double
2 celebrities die in the same day (25 points for each celebrity). 3 celebs would be an extra 75 points, etc.

100 Points: The Last Call
Celebrity dies on Dec. 31st.
