Wow, is it that time again already? We'll announce the winner for 2016 as soon as the year ends, but for now:


To play the game, post a list of ten well known currently living†people that you think will die in 2017.† add an eleventh "alternate" that will become part of your list if someone on your list dies before the beginning of the year. Only an unedited post dated before January 1st 2017 will be considered (so don't edit your post!)

The winner will receive a stern look and be asked why he or she does these sort of things.
