RAPS 144 ½ – aka “PRAG”

Something weird has popped up in my mailbox.

.

Unidentified sources have also supplied me with some inofficial photos of this mysterious superfluous new product. This is what the game looks like:

It apparently first turned up somewhere over on Twitter, as a supposed thank you gift for Plushie-maker Sinnamin. Well, I think that is commendable – although not as commendable as Sinnamin’s contributions to the birthday auctions. She really deserved more than just a silly mint tin…

The whole game comes with a few bits and pieces, cut-out figures, and a little fishing rod.

That rod looks rather fishy to me… quality materials, my arse…

Apparently it is some sort of game. 

Like, fishing for plushies?

Here are the rules:

.

I wonder whether that’s going to be a hit…

Maybe RAPS Inc. should make an angling game with some other chaRActers. I can think of a few who are already in costume…

What do you think? Is that game a goer? Or has the ship sailed for RAPS Inc.?

  1. It’s WONDERFUL! Oh dear, I’m practically speechless 😍 Though it’s true there are some characters missing… definitely need Ricky and Chop… but the whole concept is brilliant and should go into production immediately 😄

    • Hehe, I’ll tell you the truth, Helen – I wanted to make a thank you present for Nancy, but I knew that a RAPS wouldn’t really be up her street. And she already has one (or two) with plushies in it. So it had to be something else. And then I was reminded of my favourite game as a child – the angling game… 🎣…
      It was only when I was writing today’s post that it occurred to me that there is actually quite a number of “Wetitages” out there that could swim… eh… sit… equally well in such a game box… I might try and get a RAPAG together…

    • Hehe, glad you like the silly wordplay 😉. How did you like the “ego-angler”?
      And how are you, btw. I realised the other day that it was exactly a year ago that we were all in Greece together!!!

      • Your wordplay is an enduring pleasure of mine! Yes, “ego-angler”… *snickers* and I also always imagine you at your keyboard with a lightly sardonic smile as you write your fabulous advertisements… LOL! I am doing fine, healthy… just watched those first couple of episodes of Berlin Station season 2, and it triggered me to finally go finish watching the last 4 episodes of season 1- somehow with the holidays I never did that, then never got back into them. I’ve been a pretty crap Armitage fan, but he pulls me back in, doesn’t he? Hard to believe a year has passed since Greece… the best of times. =)

        • Hehe, less sardonic and more impish delight! I admit to occasionally even breaking into giggles while writing up the pieces – although it’s slightly embarrassing to say that.
          Glad to hear you are doing ok – and that RA is still drawing you in, even if you are not actively blogging at the mo. Those two episodes from season 2 are actually a much better advertisement for the show than season 1 ever was. I find myself mesmerised by Trevor, against beards and better judgment. I am slightly alarmed by the irrepressible sensation of attraction I am feeling, actually.

          • Lol- ok, lightly sardonic was my way of saying impish… and I love picturing your face as these over-the-top endorsements roll out onto the screen! Yes, the beard never is a problem for me, and I’m not the least alarmed by the attraction… if Francis Dolarhyde couldn’t put me off, I doubt that Trevor can. =)

            • That’s exactly what I find worrying. First there was a serial killer with a deeply sadistic streak whom I found worth saving; now it is a neo-Nazi sympathiser who deals in weapons 😱. What the hell is wrong with me???

              • Aw, I have every faith that at some point there will be a reckoning, and Trevor’s façade will crack, hopefully revealing more than we currently know about the inner life of the inscrutable Daniel Miller. I was obviously fairly detached from the character heretofore… I’d love it if that changed in season 2.

  2. That’s the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time! Adorable beyond words. Who wouldn’t want to try and catch a “Richie” character?

  3. Cuter than a basket of kittens or puppies. Love the game. There are so many Rich fish I’d love to hook. It doesn’t seem possible it’s been a year since the AHA members were cavorting in Greece. At least I had a lovely reunion with one of them. Miss all of you crazy fun girls.

  4. I LOVE IT! What a great game idea, Go Fish for adult women. I’m having a brain fart here. What’s an OR? And how does the hook work? I’m having trouble recognizing 3 of the plushies and I thought I knew them all.

    • OR stands for “Original Richie”. The hook is a magnet and the little plushies all have a heart of metal.
      And here is a list of the plushies (in order of appearance on the game rules): King Oleron + Thorin; Thornton, Chop, Proctor, Trevor Belmont + RA selfie Vampire; Guy + Francis Dolarhyde; RA.
