Popular Secret Santa Sweepstakes (2011)

Some Holiday Cheer!
*** Sweepstakes now CLOSED for entries ***
The Secret Santa Event gets bigger every year! This year we have over 2100 participants. And if past years are anything to go by, some folks may receive more than one game from their Santa. This would suggest that several thousand games will be given out this year.
I thought it would be fun to hold another sweepstake this year, (see last year's), based on the results of The Most Popular Secret Santa Games (2011) geeklist.
** Winners Announced Below **

After the January 14th, 2012 update of the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist, the entries matching the top three games in that list will share the geekgold pot for Win (1st), Place (2nd), and Show (3rd), dividing the pot 60%/30%/10% respectively.
The Prize Money will be 100 GG from me, plus the contents of the tip jar from this geeklist.
To try and make this clearer...
You will win some geekgold in this sweepstake if:
You added the geeklist-item (to this list) that matches one of the top three items as reported in the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist on January 14th, or
You commented on the geeklist-item (in this list) that matches one of the top three items as reported in the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist on January 14th
At the end of 1/14/2012, the most popular games recorded as BGG Secret Santa gifts were:
1st Place : 7 Wonders (gifted 47 times)
2nd Place : A Few Acres of Snow (gifted 45 times)
3rd Place : The Resistance (gifted 41 times)
There was 161.00 in the tip jar, making a total pot of 261.00 for prize fund:
60% = 156.60
30% = 78.30
10% = 26.10
156.60 split 61 ways (for those who guessed 7 Wonders) comes to 2.57 each.
78.30 split 23 ways (for those who guessed A Few Acres of Snow) comes to 3.40 each.
26.10 split 9 ways (for those who guessed The Resistance) comes to 2.90 each.
Entries have been re-ordered to match popularity.
All the winners have been tipped their winnings.
Thanks for playing!
