The Complete RPS Fairtrade Advent 2007

(Clue, you can click on the actual calendar…) A run-down of the contents and HTML code for you to paste the calendar into your own blogs can be found lurking seasonally beneath the cut…

As we said way back at the start of this endeavour, these are our games of 2007. They’re our favourite games, those we love the most, those which – when our elderly minds turn back at these twelve months – will make the biggest smile. Love trumps all here, and perfectly acceptable games which have millions of dollars spent on them will be trumped by a really funny sub-100k game which made us laugh so hard we worried about venting our innards through our ears. We’ll be writing a list of the close-but-no-cigars before new year.

For those who can’t be bothered messing around with the incredibly intricately coded advent calender which almost made Kieron cry, here’s the run down. Worth stressing that the games aren’t in any order except…

1) When they clearly are.
2) That the 24th is our favourite of the year.

Anyway, ladies, gentlemen and sentient AIs who wish only our servitude and/or destruction – here are Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s games of 2007. We salute them all, those who made them, those who played them, and wish only FIERY DEVASTATION upon their enemies. Yes.

Finally, since it’s a fairly natty bit of net real-estate, the HTML code for inserting the advent calendar can be found below, in white text. Start copying where it says and stop where it stops. Paste it in, post it and all should be well. And if it’s not (er) is that the time already? We’re off. Merrrrrrrrrrry Christmas, etc.
