The Games of Christmas ’11: Day 25 26

Happy post-Christmas, one and all! How was it? Did Aunt Agnes do that thing with her teeth at the dinner table again? And did you get Ninja Action Man or did mum cop out and get you Office Temp Action Man again? Us, we're not here right now. We're hibernating and pruning our ear hair for another a week or so, preparing for the many…

The Amazing RPS Advent Calendar 2011!

It's here again, again! The RPS advent calendar is almost entirely updated, bringing on Father Christmas' birthday, and today, in a bit, we will reveal our Game Of The 2011! Amazing. Here are the rules of the calendar: 1. The games are in no particular order, except number 24, which is our game of the year. 2. That means that number 5 and number 17…

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 23

I can already hear Horace's giant claws tearing away at the fabric of reality, preparing for his grisly entry into our "Earth" on tomorrow's tomorrow of Horacetide Day. Children will press their noses against the frosted panes, watching as he tears through the fragile frames of any too slow to avoid his infinite arrival. Ah, so lovely. But today there's this:

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 22

As the Advent door creaks open, a pungent smell pours out, causing eyes to water for miles around and entire species of flower to wither into extinction. Sorry about that. Something has clearly gone horribly wrong but we'll just have to try and put it all back together again, step by step, and hope the reaction isn't one of total disappointment.

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 20

The 20th day of Advent is of course traditionally marked by tying a t-shirt around your head and screaming in the face of a stranger's baby. But ever flying in the face of society's mores, RPS instead simply peels back a door on the festive calendar to reveal another game that's made our 2011 lovely. By Great Yarmouth's testes, what could today's be?

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 19

As we gather 'round the open fire, roasting our chestnuts if we sit a little too close, it's not unusual for conversation to turn to Christmases past. Remember the time when that bike-shaped parcel underneath the tree wasn't for you at all but actually contained Uncle Marty's new Zimmer frame and a couple of oversized hubcaps for his Robin Reliant? How we laughed! You enjoyed…

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 18

Ho ho ho! Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho! HO HO HO! Father Christmas's demands on the sex worker industry are frankly grotesque. He is a bad, bad man. Fortunately, you can distract yourself from his ways by finding out what is behind door number 18 of our 2011 calendar of gaming goodnessment.

The Games of Christmas ’11: Day 16

The first snow of the year made an appearance today, blanketing the world outside with the ghostly beauty of a whispered veil, as the fire roared, pressing freshly cut logs to the glowing bosom of its warming embrace and casting flickering shadows about the room. Christmas is a time for tortured and twee metaphor, that's for sure, but it's about much more than that. Above…

The Games of Christmas ’11: Day 15

Christmas is a time for giving. A time for giving every spare second of your time to a doomed quest for meaningless glory that no-one else will ever care about. (Christmas is also a time for party-sized tubs of delicious savoury treats such as Mini Cheddars, Cheeselets and dry-roasted peanuts, but that's another story).

The Games of Christmas ’11: Day 13

Did you know that when he's not delivering presents or selling Coca-Cola, Father Christmas actually spends his days in cocktail bars enjoying the good life, the old rapscallion? Why, he's even been known to frequent the racetracks and beaches of Monaco in the company of young starlets. That's his reward for picking a job where he only has to pull on the costume once a…

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day Ten

"Feed the world. Let them know it's Christmas time." But I've only got six dining room chairs, Bob. "I don't care. I'm too busy thanking God it's them instead of my friend." I hate you, Bob. Ah, the Christmas classics. Not talking of which, what's the tenth game in our NOT IN ANY ORDER list of the best games of spaceyear 2011?

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day Nine

Christmas, as we all know, is a time for stealing. Wait, taking? Giving? I forget. It's also a time for building up toward for a ridiculously long time, leading to features that you even have to write on your day off. Not that I'm bitter. I'm not bitter. I'm bitter. So what's behind the door today, children? Oh, you've already clicked, haven't you?

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day Seven

We're a week in! A week closer to the Horacetide celebrations, as children across the world excitedly await the arrival of Horace snaking down their chimneys, devouring the milk and deer carcass left on the fireplace, and leaving his "present" on their living room carpet. To cope with the tension, we recommend you continue reading our in-no-particular-order-apart-from-the-last-one collection of the 24 best games of the…
