So you want to join the pool…
First, you need to come up with a list of 15 “significant people” (basically celebrities). Your picks can’t include any names already held by another player in the current season. Also, all your picks must be living when the commissioner/clerk reviews the list. Then you contact the commissioner and he/she guides you from there.
Eventually, the commissioner or the clerk updates the spreadsheet with your name and list and, voila, you’re in.
There are some other rules too, but you can read about those on the rules page.
