To everyone that has ever played, contacted me, thought about playing, or hated what we did – thank you for the many years of fun and enjoyment this game has brought me and all of you. We had a great run – from 2000 to 2012, and it’s bittersweet that Ghoulpool.us will no longer exist. I’ve made many friends from this game, and hope that those friendships continue past the game. It’s also made me the star at many parties when we start the “Alive or Dead?” trivia.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy 2013. Read more... (105 words, estimated 25 secs reading time)

We have a new overall, #1, Numera Uno, Top Dog in the game. Russell Means, an Indian activist that has been fighting the pale skins since 1964. He brought a lot of attention to the plights if indigenous people, including the North American native Americans, as well as the people of Central and South America. Means passed on October 22nd, and we had to scorers. Capitals grabbed some points with Means as his Number 4 name, while Scott A moved up to the Top Spot with his score.
Congrats to both, and keep looking for those points.

Well, five players earned points this week with the death of two politicians, half a world apart.
First, King Norodom Sihanouk of Thailand died at the age of 89. Four players had him, including Dr. Death #2, One Deadbeat Off, Pining for the Fjords, and Team, Dirt. Pining, in all her beauty, moved in to fifth place on the leader board and earned her way back into the main page info. Then today, George McGovern died at the age of 90, earning a solo shot for The Ghoulish One – Congrats on the Solo!! Read more... (150 words, estimated 36 secs reading time)

I’ve been slacking on my Ghoulpool duties. There’s something about summer, swimming in the pool, drinking frothy adult beverages, and smoking a ton of meat that just resonates. As much as I love the kill game, it doesn’t beat summers. So, now that I’ve sobered up and recovered from my most recent sunburn, I’ve got some catching up to do. Three deaths in the past two weeks, and people want their points. Mostly Drop Dead, who scored points on ALL THREE deaths this report!! Can you say Harvey Wallbanger?? Read more...

It was a busy two days for the ol’ Grim Reaper. Not only is he out collecting well-done people across the midwest and mid Atlantic states, but he found the time to grab a couple of celebrities while he was at it.
On July 15th, Celeste Holm dies at the age of 95. She was a Solo Shot for Dead Right, and he earned 42 points for the effort.
On July 16th, Kitty Wells went deep at the ripe old age of 93. Yet another solo shot – this time to You Might Try Dying. He earned 48 points for that score.
And then later on July 16th, Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord went down, scoring Dr. Death #3 and Scott A (who picked up Lord on the July 1st waiver wire) with 49 and 48 points respectively. In the process, Scott took over first place, and is the first player to break 500 points this season. Read more... (159 words, estimated 38 secs reading time)

Ernest Borgnine died. Eight people had them on their lists: 3JCmusic.com, Boston Mike #2, The Caps, Dr. Death #3, Drop Dead #2, Herman’s headstones, Lady Morte, and The Ghoulish One. All scores updated right here.

Thanks, Jen, for reminding me to score this one. Five players had the former Prime Minister of Israel on their lists, adding points to their totals. Pining For The Fjords moved in to the Top 5 (actually tied for 5th place with Mom With A Dark Side). Boston Mike #2, One Deadbeat Off, and Team Dirt also celebrated just a bit when they heard the news.
Shamir died on June 30th, and was our 23rd scored death.
Congrats to all!!

Happy Fourth to all! Here’s to many good barbecues, adult beverages, and a fireworks-laden night. With any luck, we’ll have a story or two to post in the next couple days of some dumb-ass blowing themselves up… Here’s a little montage of idiots-past doing serious damage to themselves.
A couple orders of business:
1) Darrel Akerfelds dies on June 24th, and four players had him, causing a shake-up in the standings, including a new leader (cough-cough, it’s me). Dr. Death 1 & 3, 3JCmusic.com, and Scott A all had him, and were rewarded handsomely. And Go Fish let me know he couldn’t believe he missed him, especially since he played him in a different dead pool. Suckaaaa…. Read more... (408 words, estimated 1:38 mins reading time)
