— Each answer card cites the play, act, and scene (in case your dad doubts that Shakespeare really has Hamlet allude to “the incestuous pleasure of his bed”).
— Just a touch of help with early modern English: unobtrustive glosses on about 10% of the cards define archaic words with non-intuitive meanings.
— For 4 or more players. Not for kids.
