FanstRAvaganza Kick-Off + a Game and Give-Away! *UPDATED*

Welcome to the 3rd annual FanstRAvaganza!!!
I'm one of your hostesses, Nat, and I'm very excited for this week's fun festivities! 
Please pop in  daily and enjoy plenty of RA entertainment all over the blogging world,
as we celebrate our favorite actor and his AWESOME fans. :)

To read about how this event came to be, click HERE.

Links to both the core bloggers (posting daily) and tagteam bloggers
(posting on specific days of the week) will be provided, so be sure to hop from
one blog to the other!  Your support and comments are greatly appreciated. 
(Participation from readers make it extra fun!)

This week, I will be featuring RA games, several
guest posts (which are SO great!) and to wrap things up,
Stick-Figure Richard's latest adventure.

*        *        *        *        *

to kick off our FanstRAvaganza fun,
we're going to play a little game called:

Name... that... Nose!
(For the full effect, you have to shout it, like "Wheel... of... Fortune!")

Here's how to play~
Below, you will see several cropped pictures of Richard's nose.
To participate, you will need to leave a comment listing which characters each nose belongs to,
and what scene.  (You don't have to know the exact episode of a TV series, but at least name
the season & describe the scene.  Example: #4- Lucas, Season 8, boiler suit scene.) 

The first person who lists everything correctly will win...
A Stick-Figure Richard mug!!!
(And Oprah thinks she gives away good stuff.  Hmpf!)

This is the image on it:
The winner will need to email me their mailing address,
so if you're not comfortable sharing that info, please note that
you're just playing for fun in the comments. 

Okay, let's get going with those noses...
Good luck "picking" them. :)

Hint: All of these photos are from's gallery.

*UPDATE: Uncropped photos below.
Phoebe (and her silent partner in crime, time4tea)
was the first to list all of the correct characters and scenes
in the comment section and therefore proclaimed the
winner of her very own SFR mug! Time4tea will
receive one too. :)  (I guess I never did say
that partnering up wasn't allowed.)









I will post an update naming
the winner and showing the uncropped
photos later, so stay tuned.

Please be sure to check out
today's fabulous FanstRAvaganza tagteamers!

ROFL! This is the best game ever. I love that nose and I always wanted a stick figure richard mug.

bccmee said...

Haha, very festive! Is that RA in Majorca? I'm going to have to play a bit later when I have time to focus. I love the man's nose. ♥

Mulubinba said...

I think I'll be spending hours cscrolling through screen caps of RA's nose!! I think I can guess 1,2, & 3 ... not sure about the others yet :)

Richardsbabe said...

Damn! I´ve just been caught looking closely to that nose. Obviously, the question: "What the hell are you doing?" LOL. Gosh, I want that mug!

Antonia Romera said...

I know the answers.
Richard,... Richard, Richard, ... hmmmm... Richard, .... Richard, Richard, Richard, ... Richard.

Have I won? *big smile*

oops sorry! I was too excited to see his nose that I didn't read this properly to the end ;D

Faboamanto said...

I'll have to come back and play after work. I love his nose.

Best game ever!

ChrisB said...

Brilliant! Day one of FanstRA and you've already got us picking RA's nose! Love it :-)))

I'll have to do some serious research to come up with some answers though. This is a tough one!

Curious Georgina said...

Can I ask a question? Okay, I'm going to ask one, and if you don't want to answer, I will understand. :D

Do you have any characters twice?

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

Nobody has even guessed yet!?
Oops... I hope I didn't make this too hard! (I tried to give hints with the cropping, leaving key elements in the background.)

Curious Georgina, characters are only featured once.

Wow, what a great nose! What great noses?

Violet8886 said...

I love this! I think the no 1 photo is Richard in North and South when Margaret travels and meets Richard after she has turned him down [marriage proposal] Notice the palms in back of the nose...

Violet8886 said...

Nose 3 pix is Richard as Guy, Nose 4 seems like a scene from Captain America with Richard as Heinz Kruger of course.

Violet8886 said...

Nose 2 Richard as Claude Monet..that is my guess and Nose 8, Richard as Lucas North. :) Yeah!!! I know I am not getting the exact scenes...must be distracted by the nose..;)

Trudy said...

I feel a Dr. Seuss element here...the game is 'who knows which nose is whose?' I'm a lopsided RA fan, having only seen certain works, but I can spot Thornton by only his nose - I'm certified!!!

Suse said...

Excellent post! I obviously haven't watched my DVDs often enough after all as I have difficulties identifying the source of each cap.

RA should be ever so proud to know that even his nose is now so famous that it has become the focus of a quiz ;-)

gracie said...

It is official. I have gone cross-eyed at looking at that beautiful nose all day long but I am still not ready. Dang it.

Phoebe said...

After too much time spent trolling thru Ali's site we have come up with the following

1. N&S Epi 2 the Exposition
2. Inpressionists Epi 2, looking at the train.
3. Robin Hood, Ser 1, Epi 7 088 Guy w/wine pitcher in background
4. HK escaping after killing Erskine
Capt America
5. Vicar of Dib when Harry meets Gerry in the village.
6. Spooks Ser.7 ePI 5 #192 Lucas in his power suit.
7. Strike Back 1 Epi 2, img 243 waiting to be rescued. Porter of course
8. Sparkhouse and Lovely John Epi 2,Carol comes home after 4 years and they clean up the kitchen. He is wearing a boiler suit.

Hope we got these right, me and my Siamese twin, time4tea. We find that two heads are always better than one.

CDoart said...

Nat, I am hopeless ;o( I don't get the pictures together - snifff ...
But the game is an absolutely brilliant idea and I love the return of SFR ;o)
I hope he enjoyed his summer holidays.

Gratiana Lovelace said...

*Hangs head in shame*

Wow. Apart for #3 I am clueless. And I call myself an RA fa.....sigh.

pi said...

Geeeeez, I am an RA fan, not a "fa". Just call me an RA loser :).

Frenz said...

Wish I had time to work on this!!!

But I will say that if you don't recognize the first one immediately, I'm wondering about you as an RA fan. :D

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

Way to go, P... you just won a SFR mug to go along with your RA mug! :)

I will post a formal announcement and provide the uncropped screencaps later today.

PS: Honorable mention to Violet... she was close, but left out a few.
