The Play's The Thing

What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?

Is that the glow of young minds understanding Shakespeare? The Bard goes from intimidating to accessible with The Play's the Thing. Players discover the Globe Theater while collecting parts of a scene to learn and perform - all while avoiding your basic Elizabethan obstacles: missed cues, duels and stage disasters. As the game progresses, the play takes shape, readying players for the next of the three dramas (Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, or Julius Caesar). Four levels of play make the game challenging and fun for all. Made in the USA.

    Comments about The Play's The Thing:

    This was a gift to nephew and niece that are very bright (nope, not bragging, it's just true) So buying for them is rather hard. They LOVE this, it works the brain a little while you play!
