Game of Thrones Death Pool

Anyone up for a Game of Thrones death pool? We can bet on who we think will die this season. How will it work? Ante up $5. That gets you 10 shares to distribute any way you choose between up to 10 characters you think will fail to survive this final season.

When a character dies, they generate 100 blood. The blood is evenly divided among all shares. For example, if Abed bets 1 share on Brienne dying and Shirley bets 4, Abed would get 20 blood, and Shirley 80.

The person with the most blood on their hands at the end of the season will win the pot because: When you bet on Game of Thrones, you win or you . . . lose $5. Or I guess you could tie, and split the pot with the other winners. (Clearly, I'm not as pithy as Cersi. Sorry.)

When everyone has placed their bets, I will post shares and standings both here and on facebook. For transparency, my bets are at the bottom of this post.

Fine Print:
  • Need help? There is a list of living characters here - http://time.com/5539248/game-of-thrones-season-8-who-is-alive/
  • You can bet on any character you can unambiguously identify. You don't have to stick to the above list.
  • If someone goes from being alive to undead, that counts as dying.
  • Death must last until the end of the season to count. If someone dies and then returns to life, no blood is scored.
  • A character can only score once, no matter how many times they die.
  • If other weird corner cases come up, I'll make a call as fairly as possible.
  • Pro-Tip: Bet on one or two of the characters you least want to die. That way you'll feel less sad when they do - at least you earned points!
If you’re interested, send me your list (privately) before midnight, April 13th.

My Bets:
Jamie - 2
Arya - 1
Sansa - 1
Tyrion - 1
Melisandre - 1
Cersi - 1
Lyanna - 1
Missandei - 1
Yara - 1
