RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 24th

But one door remains on our RPS-approved fairtrade advent calendar. Behind it lurks the truth, the wonderful, chocolately truth. Our game of the year. And, thank heavens, the end of about half a dozen increasingly laboured running gags. Oh, lawks. We’re going to have to think up new jokes next year, aren’t we? Aaargh.

It’s okay. Let’s not think about tomorrow just yet. Let’s think about right now, and the game behind this final, inviting flap of coloured tree-pulp:

Would you kindly open this calendar?

Whatever could it be? Last chance to guess. The clues are all there. It’s a door, after all. Or, to put it another way… Read the rest of this entry »

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 21st

If I could have a supernatural power – any supernatural power – it would be to turn whatever I touched into chocolate. The Chocolate Midas, they would call me. And I would be feared across the world: “Don’t mess with me, Capitalists, or I turn your economy to chocolate!”

Yeah.

The sad reality is that I can’t turn anything into chocolate and I have to rely on the sweet brown goodness turning up randomly as I travel this mean old world. And hey, perhaps there’s even some inside the RPS-approved Fairtrade Advent Calendar

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 19th

So, you collapse in, drunk. It’s Christmas. That’s how it works. It’s you and the screen, trying to make some sense of your relationship. You know you should just crawl into bed, but you know that sitting in front of that monitor just makes more sense. You sip your drink and realise – hey – you haven’t opened the RPS-approved fairtrade advent calendar so you turn to it and pull away the recycled cardboard to reveal…

DUNK? It's not big or clever

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 16th

I have to be honest: I nearly forgot to open today’s window on the RPS-approved Fairtrade advent calendar. Thank f*** Alec reminded me.

Um…

There is no window sixteen. What the hell? Kieron!

It’s okay, we’re professionals… And, yeah. Anyway. Let’s travel through the electronic cardboard portal, and into a fresh kind of Wonderland…

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 13th

The 13th of December is traditionally the day when we celebrate being hungry here at RPS. There are numerous ways to satiate that hunger, and therefore celebrate it. You can have a bowl of Weetabix, eat an apple, make a sandwich from last night’s curry, or, more seasonally, open a window on our Fairtrade advent calendar.

FIVE GOLD WORMS!

Because you know what’s in there.

Chocolate. There’s got to be some around here somewhere. There’s none in the cupboard. There’s none beneath the desk. There’s none in any of the RPS-towers crates. There’s no chocolate any-bleeding-where. I give up. Better open a window on our Fairtrade advent calendar.

FIVE GOLD PIECES!

Mein Gott! What’s this?

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 6th

Like you, we can’t wait until December 25th. On that day we can all happily celebrate the birth of Father Christmas and put our troubles aside. But there’s still weeks to go, so we’ll have to think of something to pass the time. One thing we can do is open a window on our RPS-approved Fairtrade advent calendar. What’s behind the door…

Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other: Does this taste funny to you?
