Well, it took over two months, but this giveaway is finally complete! Sorry again for the big delay at the end, but I had a blast doing this with my son. He absolutely loves this Smash Bros. game, and I'm glad we were able to do this together. I have a hard time keeping up with all of the details of what's going on in the game, but his analysis and my yelling hopefully make for an entertaining combination.
Congratulations again to @Lars , whose character won this tournament with a perfect 6-and-0 record; @WedgeRock , whose character didn't look intimidating, but he made an impressive run to the final match; @Josh Kifer , whose "wrestling tiger" character was maybe the most entertaining of the entire bracket; and @VivasTable , who may have ended with two straight losses, but still walks away with a major prize for winning his region.
As promised, here are the final prizes that were determined when our final four matches were decided.
@Lars : NUTS tournament sample set / Teddy KGB Oreo DB / Tigerhawk Card Room DBs (black + gold) / Cleopatra's DB / Big Top Poker Hi/Lo chip @WedgeRock : NUTS tournament sample set / Bomb Pot button / Pillage & Plunder DBs (pieces of eight + sunset) / The Shed DB / Big Top Poker Hi/Lo chip @Josh Kifer : NUTS tournament sample set / River Rat DB / Monopoly Railroads DB / Fox Run DB / Utah Jazz DB / Big Top Poker Hi/Lo chip @VivasTable : NUTS tournament sample set / River Rat DB / Monopoly Railroads DB / Fox Run DB / Cherry Hills DB / Big Top Poker Hi/Lo chip

It looks like almost all of the prizes are scheduled to be delivered today, except for the two Canada deliveries and two people that I am holding off to ship with other items that will be shipped out at a later date.
I have a tendency to to labor-intensive giveaways, but nothing like this.
Thank you once again, @Himewad for all the effort you out in to this giveaway. I didn't even know who Ness was, and I certainly wasn't thrilled to get him in the draw because, as you said, he's not very intimidating. But I had fun watchinh him sail through matches, especially after Match 3 or so when I could actually follow the action.
