Blaseball Career

Shortly after joining the Charleston Shoe Thieves, Richardson Games made his first reported foray into theft by stealing teammate Esme Ramsey's accursed grappling hook. When asked why, Games only shrugged and said, “I wanted a grappling hook.” He then proceeded to vehemently deny that any part of the theft was motivated by a need to “show off” or “prove himself.”

After the conclusion of Season 9, reporters and teammates alike noticed that the hook had somehow taken the place of Games’s right arm. Games assured interviewers that this body modification was entirely intentional and normal, and that he, of course, knew exactly what he was doing. Games repeated this sentiment during Season 10 after the hook began seemingly involuntarily shooting from his arm to consume the blood of opponents. Games was at one point overheard in the Shoe Thieves locker room muttering “can you boost my [expletive] batting stat for chrissake” directly into the hook itself, although no conclusions regarding the sentience of the hook can be drawn from this, as Games’s defensive ability proceeded to reach a record-breaking 8 stars. When asked for a comment, Ramsey stated simply, “it wouldn’t have bit his arm if he’d fed it."

Personal Life

Richardson Games is married to Charleston Shoe Thieves player Cornelius Games. The two are both notoriously private, and do not often talk about their marriage. Regardless, a few more details can be gathered.

During the first three seasons, it was theorized that the rivalry between the Millennials and the Thieves was putting a strain on the couple's relationship. Fans and teammates reported that they were not often seen together, and that when asked about their partner either of the two Gameses would adopt a sour expression and change the subject. After Richardson' transfer, however, their relationship appears to be on the up and up. The two were seen renewing their vows at Sunken Charleston's Drive-Thru Wedding Venue, Bar, and Grille during Season 6. The flower girl, a then-two year old Velazquez Alstott, threw rose petals in the reporter's face when asked for a comment.

Games became a reseller without realizing it. Their love of striking vintage pieces from the '70s and contemporary designers like Raf Simmons led to an extensive wardrobe. In a Reddit AMA thread, Games said he began selling pieces because he felt guilty about keeping their beauty in a dark closet. He frequently talks about how clothes are meant to be worn with care. During that AMA, Games said their favorite runway show is McQueen Spring 2001.

His appreciation for higher-quality items, along with his inherited wealth, are a frequent source of conflict between Games and former Millennials teammate Schneider Bendie, despite the fact that they both agree that people just shouldn't worry about money so much. He also continues to emphatically deny rumors that he designed the costume for a mysterious masked vigilante recently seen around the city.

Upon reuniting with Cornelius Games and joining the Charleston Shoe Thieves, Richardson also seems to have re-discovered his love of footwear.  His latest catalog featured a vastly expanded selection of dress shoes, sneakers, and penny loafers.  When asked as to the reasoning and source of his new inventory, Richardson said "To quote my husband, what are you, a cop?", winked, then left the interview.
