Jerry Van Dyke gets the party started

Comedian Jerry Van Dyke has died at 86, giving us our first action of the game. Scoring the solo hit is Laura Welliver's Jerry Jerry Jerry List.

Congratulations, Laura!


2018 KDP is live!

The 2017 edition of Kaufman's Deadpool is over, and a big congratulations goes out to Kevin Byrnes, who snagged a record 8 hits to take home 75% of the collected $620 pot, or $465.

Mike Spinney came in second place, earning 15% ($93).

Bob Razem picked up 3rd place and the remaining 10% ($62).

We've got 57 entries this year - a few people didn't return (but they're all welcome back for 2019!), and we have our first new player since 2016 - Paul Lineback joins us via Bob Razem's referral

Now that the game is all fully updated on the site, please take a moment and verify that I've got your lists entered correctly and let me know ASAP of any errors.

Congratulations, everyone! Good luck to all in 2018!
