- Names can be shared across lists, but the lists won't be posted until the game starts
- Each pick is worth 100 pts. minus the pick's age (yes, if you pick some one over 100 you actually lose points, but is a perfectly legit pick)

- The pick must be famous; no kin, and no one on the lyst
- "The oldest man in the world" or the "tallest woman on Earth" is no good either- we need a name
- No pulling a Terry Shaivo; you cannot pick a person who is dying
- No Scott Petersons- the pick cannot be on death row
- Pick must be human (Koko the signing ape is not an eligible pick)
- Anyone can play, lystoid or otherwise.
