Shakespearian Plays

The judge presents a yellow card, your fellow kitchen-table thespians respond, and before you know it, you've got "If music be the food of ill-shaped fishes, play on." A laugh-till-you-cry look at the Bard's smutty side, the raunchy hilarity of this game knows no bounds. Invented by an English professor and his students, this adult card game asks the low-brow literary question, "To be profane, or not to be?" It includes 100 mock-serious questions for our time and 375 responses drawn word-for-word from the works of William Shakespeare. For four or more over-educated adult players only. Designed by Tim Cassedy, Chelsea Grogan, Jenna Peck, and Kate Petsche; made in Texas.

We played a few rounds of the game ourselves, and zounds! Turns out it's pretty fun. Find out more on the blog.

The administration of Southern Methodist University was very surprised when a successful business emerged from its English Department. Along with students Chelsea Grogan, Jenna Peck, and Kate Petsche, Professor Tim Cassedy invented literary-minded card games based on the works of Herman Melville and William Shakespeare. They co-own this unlikely company, giving a certain popular NSFW card game a run for its money.

      Love the sentence starters and the idea that all of the 'answers ' came from Shakespeare made it hilarious and great!

              We bought this for our daughter in graduate school studying Shakespeare! Although it was for Christmas, her and her friends couldn't wait to break into it and they had a great time! They said they were laughing before the first round was over! I'd say that is a hit!!
