This is the home page for the '2020 Deathlist' game (convo thread) which is run by Icy North. The game was created by Mu Beta, and has previously been run by Galaxy Babe

The following list of rules are for the Deathlist 2020 game.

Rules of Play

  1. Choose 15 celebrities who you believe may die in the calendar year 2019.
  2. Number 15 on your list must be aged under 50 in 2019 (born after 1970).
  3. Email your list, with your h2g2 user name and U-number in the title, to icyUNDERSCOREnorthAThotmailDOTcom replacing the capital letters with your best guess.
  4. You will be awarded 10 points per correct prediction. If your prediction is unique, then you receive 15 points.
  5. You will be awarded 5 bonus points by a death caused 'not by natural causes', in other words a suicide, murder or accident.
  6. You will be awarded 5 bonus points for a celebrity who dies on the 13th of the month. 10 bonus points if it's Friday the 13th.
  7. Assuming you have followed Rule 2 correctly, then you will be awarded double points for the correctly-predicted demise of Number 15 on your list (all bonus points are also doubled). Only Number 15 is eligible for this bonus, no matter how many under-50s are on your list.
  8. The definition of 'celebrity' is someone well-known enough to have their death reported on the websites of BBC News or any of the British broadsheets. Other international quality broadsheets (e.g. The New York Times) will be considered, but the Organiser's decision will be final. No report; no points.
  9. Any complaints about the poor taste of this game should be addressed to Mu Beta. He started it!

There are 11 players who have chosen a total of 131 celebrities or notable people
