100 mock-serious questions for our times.
375 answers taken word-for-word from the works of William Shakespeare.
Totally hilarious.

—Washington Post

To be profane, or not to be? BARDS DISPENSE PROFANITY is 100 mock-serious questions for our time and 375 answers copied word-for-word from the works of William Shakespeare. You be the judge of which answers are best. Answers come from all 38 of Shakespeare's plays, and each answer card cites the play, act, and scene (in case your dad doubts that Shakespeare really has Hamlet allude to “the incestuous pleasure of his bed”).

(International shipping also available.)

— Unobtrustive glosses on about 10% of the cards define archaic words with non-intuitive meanings.
— Works best with 4 or more players.
— Not for kids.
— “A deep knowledge of Shakespeare’s plays is not an essential requirement for winning this game,” raves the Washington Post’s book critic. (Seriously.)
— From the makers of DICK: A Card Game Based on the Novel by Herman Melville, featured in New York Magazine and the Washington Post.

I loved the design and quote choices for a lot of the cards! I didn't, however, like that the cards were made of card stock instead of being like a normal playing card. Hopefully they don't get damaged too badly at game night! 😁

This arrived extremely quickly despite being shipped from another country. It arrived in good condition and was well packaged. The game itself is excellent - fantastic fun with friends and some drinks. Really great purchase.
