I finally got to play this weekend it was so much fun! I love that it says where the Shakespeare quote comes from!
Arrived very quickly! This game quickly split the party in half between those who loved it and those who just weren't interested. Those who played had a great time whether they understood all the references or not. Definitely could be improved if cards were laminated.
Shipped very quickly. I bought it as a gift. My friend was so excited about it!! It's the perfect unique gift for a Shakespeare lover :)
Great gift for literature lovers and English majors, teachers. This was shipped quickly. Can't wait to play it! (It's a gift for a writer)
