One of the biggest projects we have going on in 2014 is the celebrity death pool we’ve put together with our buddies at Icon Vs. Icon, and the death pool administrators at Doug Stanhope’s Celebrity Death Pool. While the rules do allow for us to allow participants to join after the season’s kickoff, Jan. 15, 2014, we’re closing the door to newcomers Jan. 14.
In other words, if you don’t get in this year, you have to wait until next year, and trust us when we say, you don’t want to wait until next year.
If you want to be competitive in the league, it’s also a bad idea to wait until the last minute to get registered at DSCDP.com, and establish a presence in the Bad Karma Body Count Celebrity Death Pool. The basic formula for scoring is 100 minus the age of the dead celebrity, plus bonuses for being the only person in the pool to select that person. There are also bonuses for having two celebrities on your roster who die on the same day, who die on their birthday, and several other scenarios.
Helpful Tip: The solo pick bonus points are the easiest bonuses to harvest. If you don’t put in enough research to find picks outside of the obvious ones who others will most certainly have selected also, then those potentially easy bonus points will be hard to get. Other bonus points scenarios have lottery-like odds of hitting, whereas solo-pick bonuses are somewhat more predictable … as predictable as guessing when someone will die can be.
So now is the time, and the time is now, for getting in.
It’s free to play.
it is important that you like our Facebook page and follow along there, because this is where we will make announcements regarding prizes, future leagues, and more pertinent information regarding the death pool. Yeah, that’s right, I said prizes. So far, we have some Blu-Rays, gift cards, and a few other exclusive prizes in the works for players in the league, and we intend to use the Facebook page to manage it.
