We sometimes deserve your scorn. We sometimes deserve your shame. But never let it be said we don't deliver eventually. For the last six months, our team of judges have been quietly deliberating beside a heated swimming pool in a five star hotel with an open bar and all the amenities paid for by us… in fact, now that we're thinking about it, maybe that's the reason why it took so long for them to come to a consensus!

But regardless, they've finally made their pick, and after the jump you'll find the final results plus our Torch Contest winners. Relive the excitement! Get some closure! See you inside?


 

On the off-chance you're coming in late, here's a recap: in the summer of 2012 we continued our tradition of the Woot Monkey Games. Here's a recap one of our employees made in his own free time:

And today, at last, we're giving the final scores, and finally awarding the three Monkey Games torches we promised long ago. First up, The Final Medal Count.

Team The Assets scored the most, with 19 total points, four individual medals, and two golds, but they were followed closely by Flying Pu with 15 total points, four individual medals, and one gold, and then Atomic C++ Vikings with 14 total points, three individual medals, and one gold. Congrats to all our staffletes around the world, mostly in Seattle and Texas! You did us proud.


 

AND NOW, THE MOMENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! We've chosen our three Torch designing champions, and we'll announce their names in May! No, no, no, that's just a joke, seriously, the names are coming up. We just want to take a second and thank everyone and also say, because we love you, that every person who entered will be getting a free Woot Screaming Monkey of their very own. See? It pays to be patient!


 

And now, here's our list of winners, who will each be receiving one of the three special 2013 Monkey Games torches:

GOLD: niloc225


 

SILVER: reg036's girlfriend



 

BRONZE: lichme


 

But don't feel bad, curtise, baybei, squirtle456, because you'll still be getting a lovely new Woot flying monkey of your very own. See? Today, everyone's a winner! Except for us, because we've got to take a second job to pay off that stupid hotel bill the judges rang up. How do you even get $14,000 into a vending machine?

And those final results, which will be released in 2014!

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

Kinda wondered about that. That's for setting our expectations early.

I've been all excited waiting for it to show up for 3 weeks. I found out today that it was shipped to the address I last had an item sent to instead of my default address. Purchased a shirt for somebody 1000+ miles away. Doh!

I hadn't checked for the results of this in a while, so I was kind of shocked to have a square large-ish box from woot! arrive today that weighed next to nothing. The Fed-Ex guy even said, it's got to be empty, lol! The enclosed note made it all worthwhile! Thanks for the Flying Monkey, now...off to torture my cats!

Oh no! Let me see what I can do about that.
