The Complete Magnificent RPS Advent Calendar 2012!


And so it is complete, all 24 doors ripped open, the destination reached. What a time it's been, as we've divulged our 24 favourite games of 2012, and you've expressed why we're wrong. Please do continue to do so, as you spend a tired Christmas afternoon exploring our celebratory articles, while your relatives begin the traditional zebra jousting in the courtyards.
