    The Rules:

    Each team shall consist of 30 celebrities ("the Team"). In the event of a death you can add any new celebrity to replace the deceased team member.

    Anybody already sentenced to death (at the time of selecting) will not be allowed to be picked, and neither will anyone famous for being terminally ill or diagnosed with a serious illness.

    During each game you cannot alter the Team (except in the event of the death of one). The game runs from 1st January to 31st December.

    You will collect 100 points less the celebrity’s age at death, e.g. If a celebrity were currently 97 and, if he/she were on your Team and were to die tomorrow, you would get 3 points (100-97). Celebrities over the age of 100 score negative.

    You must give your team a name, ie; The Coffin Dodgers, Dead Calm etc

    It is the responsibility of each player to keep their lists current.

    Jokers:

    You may nominate one member of your team as your 'Joker'. In the event your Joker kicks the bucket, you score double points and double vCash.

    vCash:

    In an exciting new twist, starting with the 2013 edition of the game, the winning team at the end of each year earns 500v, second place earns 1500v and third place 3000v. Winners are calculated using the points method, not vCash accumulated. In the event of a tie the pot is carried over to the next year until it is won. All prizes paid at the end of each game.

    *Sent you the list again. Very worried that someone will fall into shadow and I wont see any points for their effort*

    Gazza... source The Times today

    "Gascoigne in hospital"

    Paul Gascoigne was taken to hospital yesterday after staff at a London hotel reported concerns about his mental health. The former England footballer, 40, who was sectioned in February after an incident in Gateshead, was last night undergoing tests. Police said that they would be taking no further action.


    I am very worried about this guy (thats why I put him in my CDL)
