Default Celebrity Croakers 2016

It's that time again - who do you think is going to bite the dust in 2016?

Here's the link to the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=2007261358

There are two tabs, one for 2015 (last year), and one for 2016, the current one. For now I've just left it filled in with everyone's 2015 selections, but feel free to change them for 2016.

The pink boxes are for those who made guesses in 2015 whose current selections are incomplete.

For those new to the game...

Here's how it works. Pick 5 celebrities who you think will croak in 2016.

Points are 100 minus the age that they died. Cilla Black was 72, so she score 28 points. Sam Simon was 59 so he scored 41 points.

In addition, you can pick a joker. The joker must be one of your 5 choices. Your joker will score you double points.

When someone on your list croaks, they'll get struck out and you put in a new selection. If you have a look at the 2015 tab it'll be pretty obvious.

The spreadsheet is open for editing so just go ahead and add or change your line. If you are having trouble, just post your selection in this thread and someone will get you added in.

Happy croaking!

I'm a bit confused- Partially Discharged nominated Bobbi Kristina Brown- no points given and nominated for 2016... Am I being dim?

Overlooked. Will correct as soon as Mr Schnooks gives me the laptop back.

Thanks for being in my corner. Shane McGowan may not be a 2016 victim..he's got better teeth now.

Oddly, his second death occurred last year.


Is he having a third one now?

Hi Schnooks,

Tried to update, can't remember my google password!

Can you please amend MVG to Clive James, bit of a banker!

Castro to John Prescott, fat twit is due a heart attack.

Thanks. Y

exchanged Bashir al-Assad for Hassan Rouhani - pitching for an early win if Saudi-Iranian relations worsen significantly

Might have to change out the Duke of Edinburgh too - even if he does croak this year, he's worth a measly 6 points, so hardly worth the effort...

OK I think I've fixed the ones I'd missed, BKB and Keith Harris.

Assuming I didn't miss anyone else, and let me know if I did, that puts the 2015 standings:

1st - tied, Schnooks and Yorkiechef with 82 points (Sam Simon joker)
2nd - Partially Discharged with 78 points for BKB
3rd - tied, DaveLovesDee and haggis88 with 41 points for Sam Simon
4th - Oink for Keith Harris
5th - bats for Cilla Black
6th - tootlepoodle for Leonard Nimoy

Looking at the 2016 sheet...

Partially Discharged - the "new picks" section is where you put new picks when one of your originals croaks... so I just updated your first section. However, for the joker, you'd put "The Donald"... the joker hast o be one of your original 5... so I've just left your joker box as Rob Ford for now, if you want to change to The Donald then remove one of your other picks.

haggis88 - you have the royal baby #2 as a pick, not sure if you still want that?

not2old - don't think "a beatle" counts...

bats, oink, tootlepoodle, willf - missing picks, the boxes are in red.

I think that's everything!
