Try "Playing Shakespeare" by the Royal Shakespeare Company-It's like
charades and very good for group parties.

There is a set of Shakespeare trivia cards called "After Dinner
Shakespeare."  The questions are written by one Barry Kraft and the set
is put out by "Becker and Mayer, Ltd." which must be somehow connected
to Viking Press, as there is a Viking logo on the box.

Peter M. McCluskey asks for Shakespeare games.

I have a Shakespearian edition of MagneticPoetry in the Voices
(Coprighted) Series.  Have never played it, or indeed ever opened this
Christmas present, but apparently the some 240 magnetic pieces enable
one to reconstruct some favorite passages from Sh.

There is also a semi-game in which you can learn to insult your neighbor
out of Shakespeare.

Cheers for him who wins . . .

John Velz

[Editor's Note: I use the magnetic words on my desk lamp to create my
own Shakespeare-like curses for whoever happens to be getting on my
nerves at a particular time. -Hardy]

There is a board game put out by Aristoplay called, "The Play's the
Thing."  You can purchase it through the Writing Company's "Shakespeare"
catalog for $30.00.  There is also "After-Dinner Shakespeare," by Barry
Kraft.  For $12.95 (Tudor Guild gift shop, Ashland, OR) you receive,
"One hundred parlor cards with questions and answers to stimulate the
mind and provoke lively conversation."  We use the cards on long road
trips and Shakespeare class parties.

Aristoplay makes a game called "The Play's the Thing." It's meant to be
an educational game. I forced some friends to play it one evening, and
the consensus was that it's of interest only to Shakespeare aficionados.

No one has yet mention one of my favorites - Stanley Wells's *William
Shakespeare: The Quiz Book* (Long Barn Books with Illustrations by John
Lawrence. Ebrington, Gloucestershire GL55 6NW).  Do you know . . . By
what nick-name a production of *Romeo and Juliet* featuring a racing-car
became known?
