    Posted: 13 Dec 2021 at 1:52pm
Who is on the list for 2022? Which celebrities will depart us? Which will we share fond memories of? And most important of all, who will take home the prize and etch their name on the Dead Pool virtual trophy for 2022?

With just under three weeks to go until 1 January its time to get your entries in. Plenty of time to think carefully about who will be visited by the grim reaper in the next 12 months. Entries close 11:59pm Sydney time 31 December.

Rules:
- List 10 people (celebrities preferably) who will kick the bucket in 2022
- No people with already known death dates (eg death row inmates) OR with pre-existing terminal illnesses where death is likely in 2022
- Death must be confirmed by a reputable source as occurring during 2022 in the location of their death – IE Someone dying in the USA at 6am Sydney time 1 January will not count.

Scoring:
Correct selection = 10 points
Bonus points = 100 minus age at death (eg a 75 year old correct selections scores 100-75=25 bonus points. NOTE: If your selection is over 100 you will lose points here.

Prize:
I will again put up a $20 bonus bet to the winner.
Scoring to be done individually at the end of the year
I may or may not check these reported scores. Depends if I could be bothered.

Enjoy this wonderful competition!

Yes E&E - always creates interest amongst the long suffering TBV membership. ALMOST as good as your Word Association thread.

I think you could improve it further by giving daily - or at least weekly scoreboard updates. Wouldn't take you more than an hour or so a day

And further - even more so this year with the likes of JJ, Baghdad & TJ lurking around. I mean you can hardly use poor numerical skills as the reason for inflating your score when it only ever seems to go in one direction

 Just for the record, I scored 30 points for this current year (unless anyone else on my list of only 8 people cark it before New Year) 

 I had Christopher Plummer=19 points. And Prince Pip=11 points.  Total 30.

 I'll start 2022 with the remnants of last year, plus a few new additions.

 Jimmy Carter  
 Christopher Lloyd
 Terence Stamp
 Clint Eastwood
 Glynis Johns
 Liza Minnelli  
 Kerri-Anne Kennelly
 Jane Fonda
 William Shatner 
 Donald Sutherland

 Ouch

 Bill Clinton looked worse than Carter, last time he surfaced. 

 I might sub him in my list for Liza Minnelli.

 Jimmy Carter  
 Christopher Lloyd
 Terence Stamp
 Clint Eastwood
 Glynis Johns
 Bill Clinton 
 Kerri-Anne Kennelly
 Jane Fonda
 William Shatner 
 Donald Sutherland

 I upgraded my list, replacing Liza with an 'L', with Bill Clinton who looks like 'ell. 

I don't think we will know if Jane Fonda dies, she's so full of filler she could already be embalmed.

Still a few days to get entries in. A reminder there is the $20 bonus bet up for grabs. No word yet whether Bob will through in a bottle of wine again, or indeed whether he intends to give this years winner one either.

Alright lets see if we can use our targeted groups to gain some points. An actor, a athlete, a royal, a politician and a musician are needed. You also need a young actor who is a chance of an overdose.

Bill Clinton
Elizabeth Regina Windsor (QE11)
Ric Flair
Clint Eastwood
Jeff Bridges
Neil Harvey
Willie Nelson (toss up between him and Loretta Lynn we will lose a older, legendary country music star this year)
Steven Segal
John Sattler
Ron Barassi

Good luck to all the players Wink
