Great Shakespearean Deaths (Card Game)
By Chris Riddell & Spymonkey

The legendary genius of Shakespeare comes to a game format with this set of cards from his famous tragedies.

Who had the greatest last words, and what were they? Who enjoyed the slowest, most tedious death? Who had it coming more than anyone else? From the celebrated comedy ensemble Spymonkey and acclaimed illustrator Chris Riddell, this hilariously morbid (and informative!) card game has players trying to outdo one another using everyone’s favorite Shakespearean construct: the amazing deaths! Judged by factors such as speed of death, fairness, and last words, we’ll all finally get to see who had it worse.

English students, teachers and professors alike will appreciate this gift that’s perfect for literary lovers. Use this as a fun test prep device or keep the cards as a desktop game for friends and family.

“A top trumps tragedy, or perhaps a farce, as The Edge Chronicles illustrator Chris Riddell turns his attention to the Bard. Which Shakespearean character uttered the greatest last words, or who holds the trump hand for suffering the slowest, most tedious death? Points scored for gore and brutality, piteousness, and speed of death in this cadaverous card game.” (The Evening Echo)
