Speaking of charity auctions, it took us a little while to tabulate the results of our Gears of Peace charity gaming contest, but we've finally got some stats for you. But first, the players:

Joseph Alminawi (winner)
Bushslap (friend)
jedite (friend)
Neologism82 (friend)
Over1 (friend)
Conrad Quilty-Harper (Engadget)
Paul Miller (Engadget)
Peter Rojas (Engadget)
Ryan Block (Engadget)
Chris Grant (Joystiq)
Ludwig Kietzmann (Joystiq)
and our guest of honor, Major Nelson (Microsoft)

That's obviously more than the 8 that Gears of War needs for a complete match, so please keep in mind that some players swapped in and out. In other words, the players that played the longest stood the best chance at ranking highly. Big ups to Joseph for his generous donation to Save Darfur! Good game! Stats after the break.
