The 2017 Fatal Forty

Recommended Posts

TRoyConcepts    376

Since Mac seems to be inactive and there seems to be interest for another one this year, I decided to start this thread. If there's not enough entries by January 1st, we could delay the start and the rules would then be subject to change for the new deadline date. 


Same rules as last year:

  1. Each contestant lists up to forty (40) people they believe will meet their demise between January 8, 2016 and December 31, 2016.
  2. Lists may be submitted and edited until 11:59 p.m., North American Eastern time, on January 8, 2016. After that, no changes or additions will be valid.
  3. Should someone on your list die prior to January 8, 2016, no points are awarded. But such person may be replaced.
  4. No more than forty (40) people may be listed, and only human beings may be listed.
  5. Each deceased person listed is assigned a point total in inverse proportion to their age from 100. For example, someone dying at the age of 71 would award 29 points to those who have them listed.


My Hit List:

  1. Bashar Al-Assad, Syrian President

You don't think it would be awesome if you were running in a distant third place at Christmas with almost no hope and then...

As an executive moderator decision we're extending the deadline to Sunday (⅛).


You can make changes to that point but nobody who scores before then will count.
