    Games Game of Thrones Death Pool

    Ok for fun here:

    Pick 5 named Game of Thrones characters that you think will die between now and the end of the series.

    -Top billed characters (i.e. their name appears in the opening credits) are worth 10 points
    -Major supporting characters (i.e. have appeared in more than 10 episodes at the time of their death) are worth 5 points
    -Minor characters (i.e. 10 episodes or less at the time of their death) are worth 2 points
    -One bonus point for each episode before the final episode that the character dies (i.e. if a character dies in tomorrows episode, that is worth 10 bonus points, a character that dies in the second last episode of season 8 is worth 1 bonus point)
    -Each player can select one "guaranteed death". That character will be worth triple points (including bonuses). However, if that character is still alive at the end of the series, you lose the equivalent number of points that they would have been worth.
    -Characters must stay dead to be counted (i.e. a character raised by a red witch or a white walker does not count as being dead until s/he is permanently killed)
    -named pets count (i.e. direwolves or dragons)
    -double points if you pick a character that is currently dead, and then that character comes back from the dead and then dies again

    The deadline for entries is 6 pm MST on August 6. However, if you want any deaths that occur tomorrow to be counted in your score, your entry needs to be in by 6 pm MST tomorrow (July 30).

    Once your entry is received, you cannot change it (no saying "I meant to put that other guy instead")

    I don't know if this is even possible, but if the mods wanted to make this more interesting, we could play for vBookie credits? Say 100 credits to enter, winner take all (credits divided in the case of a tie).

    I'll play. Really looking forward to the next episode like usual.
    I never read the books.

    Gregor Clegane -- just copying you NNF you seem kind of adamant on this
    One of the dragons-- I don't know their names, but i am really positive one of them WILL DIE Update: i'll pick Rhaegal as the dragon that dies
    The red beard wildling guy who likes the blond woman knight -- i think he gets it fighting against the dead
    Lady Tyrell (last Tyrell)-- something sneaky happens or something
    Cercei Lannister -- the witch prophecy it will happen this season or next

    All storylines have passed the books, so it's safe to play this game now as no-one short of anyone involved in the TV series and George Martin himself knows who lives or dies from here on out.
