Shakespeare: The Bard Game highlights knowledge, cunning performance and luck, all intertwining into a fabulous and dynamic game. The Bard Game is for 2-5 players, ages 12 and up, and plays in about 60 minutes.
As a Elizabethan theater entrepreneur in the early 1600's, your goal is to "pack the house". In particular, the chase is on to acquire scripts from the greatest living playwright of the time, William Shakespeare. To stage these extraordinary dramas, you will need to form a company of actors, acquire all the props that the play requires, find a patron, and acquire large sums of money to enable these productions to go ahead.
This extraordinary game, designed by Richard Heffer and Mike Siggins, was consulted for accuracy by Professor Peter Holland, ex-head of the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford. He is a tenured Professor of English at Notre Dame in the US.
