Description Edit | History

This is a game where each player is a play manager who must put on plays at various theaters. The game lasts the span of time agreed upon before the game starts by the other players. The object of the game is to collect acclaim points by putting on a play. To put on a play, you must buy a script from Shakespeare and collect the correct number of props, actors, and patrons for that script.

Everything has a price... You begin with 40 shillings. You must pay for each prop at five shillings each, an actor is five shillings, and a patron is requested without cost at a great house. You may gain a second patron or ten shillings at a great house by answering an easy question correctly. Each script must be bought from Shakespeare if he is not busy.

So, how do you make money in this game? This is the heart of the game.

1. You may recite a speech where your audience decides how much you gain (1-10 shillings) based on your performance.

2. You may show your knowledge by answering an easy, medium, and difficult question about Shakespeare and gain 10, 15, or 20 shillings. These questions can be multiple choice or true/false.

3. You can Busk. Busking is an impromptu performance where you gain five shillings and a fate card.

If you like Shakespeare, and you like boardgames, then this is the game for you!
