Default Celebrity Croakers 2018

Alrighty, I've got the 2018 sheet up and going.

The sheet is in the same link as previous years, there's a new tab for 2018 now.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

I've preloaded it with the existing picks from 2017 for anyone who took part. If you want to be added, just add your line.

To recap the rules:
--you pick 5 people you think will croak in 2018
--pick one of those 5 to be your joker (i.e., not a sixth pick)
--points are awarded as 100 minus age at death. So if you pick, say, Donald Trump to croak in 2018 at age 71, you'd get 29 points.
--jokers earn you double points
--you get a new pick when one of your originals croaks, and this includes jokers
--you can't change picks once you've made them
--when someone croaks, post any major news source that reports the death (CBC, BBC, CNN, TMZ, etc)
--all picks must be in by 31 December 2017. Picks will be locked as of 1 January 2018!

Be sure to check back regularly to keep an eye on standings, picks, and so on!

Any questions just ask!

Happy croaking.

OK leaving the spreadsheet up until Friday to add/change picks and such, then it's locked down for the year!

Default Re: Celebrity Croakers 2018

I just looked at 2018 and thought eh, I could have sworn I had made changes when it was originally posted but there weren't any there.

It seems I had made the changes on the 2017 grid instead - which I wouldn't have thought possible. But the two changes I made are definitely in the 2017 grid. I did a copy/paste to 2018.

I am surprised that all the "ambulance chasers" aren't scrambling to add Des O'Connor to their lists.

PS Cobourg was the warmest place today in Ontario and points east. Maybe more but I can't remember exactly what Environment Canada said.

If anyone is having trouble adding/changing picks, then just post here and I or someone else will look into it.

Picks should be locked down now (honours system), but if anyone is having issues then we can still sort it!

Just noticed Novo's picks.

That's one hell of a plot.
