Most Views - Pretty much explains itself - winner receives a Hand Painted Higby Looper

Most Comments - Let’s see who’s trick causes the most commotion - winner receives special red/black variant of The Ghoul Counterweight

Happy 5A Vibe - This is where the pageantry comes in, show us how much 5a spirit you got - winner receives Special Clear Edition of The Ghoul

Random Picked Winner - One lucky entrant will win a surprise yoyo
