Kirk Douglas is 102.  So is Olivia de Havilland. 

Those two are wrecking lots of death pools.  

This year I'll read the instructions better.  Didn't see the "under 100" part.  But still...I think they have Kirk Douglas and Olivia de Havilland on a machine just to keep them alive.  Either that or they are both bots...

We're playing this game at work for 2019.  The key is the scoring system.  Subtract their age from 100 and that's the point total you get for each celebrity.  Bob Dole would get a measly five points but Pete Davidson brings an impressive haul of 75 points.  You're rewarded for either risk taking and getting one big total or trying to be a volume player but Betty White, Jimmy Carter, and Bob Barker.

You don't get any points for Kirk Douglas.  He's 102 for God's sake.
