Death watch 2018



  • To play the game, post a list of 10 well-known people who you think will die during 2018. Also include an eleventh person who will be used if one of the 10 is disqualified. only people who are less than 100 at the time of their death qualify.

    You will receive one point if someone on your list:

    1. Is alive on January 1st 2018
    2. dies during 2018
    3. has their death reported on cnn.
    4. is less than 100 years old at the time of death.

    If an entry is disqualified by early death, turning 100, or not being reported by cnn, your alternate will become part of the list.

    The person who accurately predicts the most death wins!

    KKH: I’m not sure how the editing works here, once upon a time in FW land the edit only showed the posted date, so you never knew whether or not someone had changed their entries after January first. By the time I made the rule, Fw already handled editing differently, so I ended up looking silly.

    You’re late! And I wonder if all your people are gonna show up on cnn. anyway, welcome aboard.



  • Shouldn’t we all have 10 points?



  • @kandykornhead said in Death watch 2018:

    Shouldn’t we all have 10 points?

    I knew, I knew, I KNEW IT! The Rapture happened when Prince and Bowie left, the rest of us are left here in limbo with this mess. Is this inside information you’re leaking?



  • @ganda I misread the instructions. I guess you have to have all four things in ST’s list to get a point. It makes more sense now. I’m dumb. Maybe the KKH is more bone than brains!

    You will receive one point if someone on your list:

    Is alive on January 1st 2018
    dies during 2018
    has their death reported on cnn.
    is less than 100 years old at the time of death.



  • And so it begins…

    Jerry Van Dyke passes at 86.



  • CNN hasn’t reported his death yet, so I guess he may still be alive…somewhere?



  • This post is deleted!


  • This post is deleted!


  • @frugalfreak said in Death watch 2018:

    I think just CNN isn’t acceptable, it should include fox, msnbc, cbs, nbc, abc, etc.

    MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc are fine. Some of us do not consider Faux to be reliable for any news, political or celebrity deaths. 😃


  • 500 Club

    @discretion I like the idea of expanding to include the major networks. Means there’s a chance someone will notice if Walter Perry dies.



  • I think people mostly just like arguing about the rules. I’ve suggested several sources but people complained. I said wikipedia, people complained. I said let someone judge, people complained. Finally, i said somebody else run the game, but nobody volunteered. So the rules are as listed, only cnn counts. Anyone who wants different rules is welcome and encouraged to run another game.



  • @soundtechie said in Death watch 2018:

    Pretty much me right there. 😎



  • I still trust cnn more than faux

    Will not dispute we like arguing about the rules, heck we like arguing about almost everything.

    Even though I’d have preferred slightly different rules, like only folks without redeeming qualities be nominated… the rules were established above:

    remove my name, I’m not gonna deal with game admin who wants to be rude. Thank you, carry on. It was just a discussion that lead to game admin getting pissed because people “suggested” adding networks.

    I removed so there wouldn’t be duplicates, I didn’t want to run “another” variation of the game. All the comments requested it not be a duplicate on my thread, so I honored ya’ll’s wish.
    Your comment here https://phatwalletforums.com/post/21735 is why I created the duplicate in the first place and want my name removed. You want to get snippy, fine, but it won’t be with me.



  • Dan Gurney for those motorheads in the group. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2018/01/14/dan-gurney-1931-2018/?refer=news Was his death reported on cnn to qualify here?



  • Checkered Flag for Gurney. He had quite the life.

  • I think the official list needs an edit: KKH has John McCain listed twice 🙂

    BTW, I think Discretion’s list is wishful thinking, but I like it best (although it’s missing cheeto-face).

    @mom2jel re: discretion’s list. It might be wishful thinking but you never know. Some people generate enough animosity that bad things happen to them. Did I word that vaguely enough to not be investigated by Homeland Security?

    @discretion said in Deathwatch 2017:

    As I said back at FW, “I can’t ‘nominate’ folks with redeeming qualities, only those without.”

    It bothers me to think about ‘winning’ anything off the deaths of folks like Jimmie Carter, George HW Bush, Barb Bush, even GW Bush, Bob Dole, Billy Graham, any Popes, Stephen Hawking, QE2, a lifetime of laughs from Mel Brooks, and even Bill Shatner…

    Save Billy Graham, take that worthless hateful son of his Franklin.

    45 has certainly made my appreciation of GWB improve tremendously, not to the point of his hero dad GHWB, but it has shot up.

    BTW, my 2018 list is almost the same as 2017, but Ray Moore seems more “qualified” than Curt Schilling. 😃



  • I’ve corrected KKH’s, MHK’s and CTG’s list. I think. Any further errors, feel free to post them.
