Call whoever you think is going to die by the end of the book. Call any other face or heel turns (Snape, Percy and Harry's Aunt are tweeners and count for either). Make one other random prediction about whatever else.
One point for each correct call. Minus one point for each incorrect call. Two points for the random prediction, with no loss if it's wrong. High total wins. No playing if you've read the spoilers.
Dead - Daddy Weasley, Remus Lupin, Lord Voldemort Turns - Snape is good, Percy is evil, Harry's Aunt is good, Draco Malfoy turns face. Random Prediction - Neville Longbottom kills Voldemort, not Harry.
Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe. - Euripides
Dead: Voldemort, Snape, Bellatrix Lestrange, Tonks, and let's say....George Weasley.
Turns: Snape, posthumously
Random Prediction: Harry visits Azkaban to hunt down a Horcrux.
Wait, there are spoilers?
According to Wikipedia: "...Bloomsbury invested 10 million pounds in an attempt to keep the book's contents secure until the July 21 release date. Despite this, an advance copy was scanned and leaked to the internet several days before the official release."

Or just stay off it completely. Right now there's a fuck-tard running around on youtube posting death spoilers everywhere in the comments sections (don't worry, I managed to avoid them by only seeing a comment complaining about them). Just about every website that has public posting is having them thrown up by professional and amateur assholes.
WoW Wisdom: "And then there's aggro to worry about." "What's 'aggro'?" "Well, it's complicated. But loosely translated, it means 'the priest dies.'"
"Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!" "It was nice of you to give that dead woman another chance." "All right, look alive everybody...oh sorry Susan."- MST3K: Space Mutiny Click Here (myspace.com)
It's hard to determine what you might believe that is out there anyways, so might as well stay away completely. A guy at work Emailed a PDF file around that supposedly is the book. However, the first paragraph is different from that which is posted on-line. Who the hell knows, I think I will wait until the real thing comes out.
Now for the pool...
Dead - Voldemort, Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, most of the order, Neville, Lupin (killed by Fenir Greyback)
Face turn - Snape is a given, I think, Percy is not really a heel, but he will help in this one..., Kreacher the house-elf
Heel Turn - Bill Weasley (bitten by werewolf at the end of book 6), one of the Hogwarts teachers (McGonagall?!)
Prediction - Dumbledore isn't dead as he has a horcrux, RAB is Regulus Black, who is not dead
There's a World Container with your name on it, and a billion ways to go bezerk!!
Dead - Snape, Lupin, Hagrid, Voldemort, Wormtail, Bellatrix (by Neville), Arthur Weasley dies at Bill/Fleur's wedding. Cho bites it.
Face turn - Draco, by killing Nagini. Snape sacrifices himself helping Harry.
Random Events - Kreacher tells Harry about Regulus' getting the locket horcrux, leads him to another. Rita Skeeter covers the wedding. Victor Krum helps the trio as they travel to find a horcrux. Harry contacts Sirius through the mirror, and uses it to sacrifice himself through the veil of shadows - to remove his scar. But, being the boy who lived, he finds a way back using the power of love, from the room (of love) not specifically mentioned at the Ministry of Magic.
Heel turn. Here, I have no good ideas, so I'll say James was even more of a prick than we thought. I also think Voldy learns of the prophecy by getting it out of Trelawney.
Random Event: Voldemort is related to Harry in some form. The horror!

Here's something a friend and I were discussing the other day. Can you name one good thing that has come out of Countdown? At least at the end of 52, there were some new things that were interesting (or had the potential to be). Evil Mary Marvel?
