Thank you based god
For some of our events held during this year's festivities, there will be prizes given out to the winners and/or MVPs.

Guess the Results will include some prizes for the winner and the MVP(s) of the Mafia game will be given prizes as well. The SSBB Tournament may or may not include prizes. This is still up in the air. So far, we have the following prizes:

-19 Steam games valued at a total of $230 (ratings E to M)
-iTunes cards
-An interview and special feature in The 'Shroom

If you would like to contribute prizes, you are more than welcome to. This is not necessary at all, but if you feel like contributing, please go ahead.

Suggested items include:
-Games or credit on Steam
-Nintendo Points cards

Because we are going through tough economic times and not everyone can contribute, I'd like to keep donations anonymous. We will recognize donors when prizes are given out but we will not say what they donated or how much they donated. We know that not everyone can afford these things.

If you wish to contribute, please just shoot me a PM saying what you would like to donate.

To determine who wins prizes, Stooben suggested a system of tokens. I have come up with a system of tokens that can be earned. We do not have a set conversion rate of tokens to prizes because we do not know how many will be earned during the events. Here is a list of events that can earn you tokens.

Brawl tournament:
-Win a match: 1 token
-For every 5 KOs: 2 tokens
-Win a match in sudden death: 2 tokens
-Win a match on an opponent's self-destruct: 3 tokens
-Get eliminated in the semifinals: 5 tokens
-Finish in second place: 10 tokens
-Win the tournament: 15 tokens

Guess the Results:
-Get a trifecta: 1 token
-Earn a multiple of 69 points in a category or overall: 1 token
-Earn the most points in the Userpedia category: 2 tokens
-Earn the most points in the 'Shroom category: 4 tokens
-Earn the most points in the Fail category: 6 tokens
-Earn the most points in the Mario category: 12 tokens
-Earn the most points overall: 15 tokens

Mafia Game:

-Vote and provide a logical explanation: 1 token
-Do not get voted against during the entire game: 2 tokens for every four days you live
-Finish with a multiple of 69 lira: 2 tokens
-Get revived: 2 tokens
-Vote for a player who hasn't received any votes (four votes must have already been cast) and provide a logical explanation: 2 tokens
-Get protected by two doctors in one night: 3 tokens
-Lead a bandwagon against a player from another faction: 3 tokens
-Die before the end of the game but be a member of the winning faction: 4 for innocent, 6 for Mafia
-Survive until the end of the game but lose: 8 tokens
-Survive until the end of the game and win: 16 tokens
*Each player will also have individual goals.

Now that all the events have finished, it's time to hand out prizes! Stooben and I have compiled a list of prizes to give out to the top performers in this year's Awards Ceremony.

I will begin going down the list and contacting players that have earned enough tokens to redeem them for prizes.

A few rules:
-You may not give your tokens to someone else to allow them to receive more prizes.
-You may, of course, give prizes to other people after you have exchanged your tokens for prizes. If you want to give someone else one or more of your prizes, please let me know and Stooben will take care of it.
Example: Stoob wants to give me a game on Steam that he won as a prize. He tells whoever is giving out the prize (let's say it's Porple) that he wants to give the prize to me. Porple then gives the game to my Steam account.

We will begin going down the list of players that want to redeem their tokens for prizes. I'm pretty sure we'll definitely get at least to Superchao on the list and we may get further than that. You'll have to wait your turn to redeem your tokens because the people who earned the most tokens get the first choice for prizes.

Here is the list of tokens.

Some of the token numbers from the Mafia game may look odd since players were given tokens for being MVP of their faction or overall MVP, or they met an individual goal. SMB and MCD also received two bonus tokens because SMB tried to redirect MCD's attack onto a player MCD as already attacking. (For you non-Mafia players, a weird paradox happened so I gave them tokens).

List of prizes:

$10 iTunes card -- 10 tokens
RUSH -- 10 tokens
Toki Tori -- 10 tokens
Eversion -- 12 tokens
VVVVVV -- 12 tokens
Audiosurf -- 15 tokens
Cogs -- 15 tokens
Jamestown -- 15 tokens
Braid -- 20 tokens
FarCry -- 20 tokens
Garry's Mod -- 20 tokens
Hydrophobia: Prophecy -- 25 tokens
Monday Night Combat -- 30 tokens
Worms: Reloaded -- 45 tokens
I will begin contacting players to redeem their prizes. Thank you for your patience.

I might just give my tokens to someone else (if that's allowed) because I don't have Steam or iTunes. I might get steam at some point, though.

You can get steam for free, don't give your tokens away!
Get a game!

I might get Steam. (too bad about my slow internet)

If I do I have to choose between three different games.

I got Steam today.

But I don't have any money.

Or much space on my laptop.

I've talked to Stooben about excess tokens and we've decided that if you have tokens remaining after you get your shot at prizes, they can carry over to next year. However, this will only apply to people with at least 10 tokens.

If someone finished with 5 tokens and someone else finished with 36 and had 1 left after picking prizes, it wouldn't be entirely fair, so only people with 10 or more tokens will be allowed to carry over into next year.

Gamefreak75 chose Cogs, Braid and VVVVVVV.

BMB gets the next choice! Worms: Reloaded is now worth 31 tokens since Gamefreak didn't take it.

$10 iTunes card -- 10 tokens
RUSH -- 10 tokens
Toki Tori -- 10 tokens
Eversion -- 12 tokens
Audiosurf -- 15 tokens
Jamestown -- 15 tokens
FarCry -- 20 tokens
Garry's Mod -- 20 tokens
Hydrophobia: Prophecy -- 25 tokens
Monday Night Combat -- 30 tokens
Worms: Reloaded -- 31 tokens

I just looked at the Steam pages for all of this junk and NONE of them support my OLD version of Mac.

And I don't want an iTunes thingie. So I'm screwed.

Can I save up my tokens and spend them next year, or do I have to give them away to someone?

You can hold on to tokens until next year.

Stooben and I have decided that everyone's tokens will carry over next year, assuming they participate in next year's festivities.

Yay!

Next year I'll win the Brawl tourney for sure! (Or maybe the SSB4 tourney if that's out by then, which I doubt.)

And I'll have lots and lots of tokens.
