Related to these modern board games are the trivia-oriented card games that typically focus on Shakespearean quotes and are often explicit in their educational intent. It also includes several endorsements from Shakespeare academics as to its educative value. But of all these fabulous games, my very favorites are the two that are the most personalized.
- Maths Ultimate Plus Test to 100 Interactive Quiz Book (Maths Plus 12)?
- 11 Literary Board Games To Win Over Book-Lovers At Your Next Game Night.
- Demon Slayer Part One (Paranormal Romance, Dark & Twisted): Saving Demons Series Book 3.
- This Is Shakespeare?
Both of these are meant to be party games, I believe, with the main thrill being the experience of revealing bits of personal information about oneself in front of a group of excitable and chirpy friends. These sound fun but like you pointed out they are regular games with a Shakespeare theme pinned on it like the Checkers game or a Trivia game.
The last two are definitely the most interesting but still not much in the way of games. Is the Library collecting more recent games?

It includes 15 cheat cards — one allows players to steal money from the bank, another exhorts them to avoid paying rent. Devised nearly 40 years ago by two Canadian journalists who decided to invent their own game while they were playing Scrabble, it became an instant classic. The game comes in a variety of editions, some for the whole family, others for year-olds and up.
This one has a pie-shaped timer to speed the game up and features 3, questions in six categories — geography, entertainment, history, art and literature, science and nature and sports and leisure. The answer is Sister Act by the way. The latest edition of the game has been updated to make it fun for all ages, with two levels of clues — one for adults and the other for children — and a new popular culture category.
Players have one minute to draw the word on the card, using wipe clean markers and boards rather than the messy scraps of paper of old. Ready, steady, splat. One player puts their chin on the chin rest behind a cardboard facemask, then another aims the cannon and launches the whipped cream.
Would-be journalists will enjoy this challenge game where players get the chance to try their hands as news reporters. The reporter has to draw a card and describe the scene in 30 seconds without uttering any of the words shown on the card while their team tries to guess the story. Just to add to the fun, reporters get to use an electronic microphone and headset. Three AA batteries needed. For sheer style and longevity, the ultra-good-looking Scrabble 70th Anniversary Edition is our winner this year.
As well as being fun to play on, it will add style to your coffee table. On some occasions, we earn revenue if you click the links and buy the products, but we never allow this to bias our coverage.
