Bill Shakespeare is Dead now live on Kickstarter!
Strap on your codpiece and bite your thumb. This ain’t Masterpiece Theatre.
New game from Brikenbrak Games Launching on Kickstarter on April 6th.
Designer Paul Cosca brings Bill Shakespeare is Dead to Kickstarter as the debut effort of Brikenbrak Games. Bill Shakespeare is Dead is a fast-paced party game for 5 or more players. Those who love Cards Against Humanity and have a flair for the dramatic will find themselves right at home with Bill Shakespeare is Dead.
Featuring beautiful watercolors by Anna Poplawska, the game will launch on Kickstarter with a single copy coming in at a pledge of $30. For $75, backers will get a copy of the game and will be able to customize the text of one card that will be included in every copy of the game for this first print run.
About the game:
You and your fellow players are members of the King’s Men, and you make your living saying pretty words to hundreds of filthy people. Better than digging ditches, right? Well tonight is supposed to be the opening night of a brand new play. The crowds are already gathered in the Globe Theatre, and the only thing missing is your star playwright, Bill Shakespeare. As it turns out, Bill had a little too much pickled herring and a lot too much wine and is as dead as disco. Now, armed with nothing but patches of the new script and (sometimes obscene) scribbles in the margins, you all need to put on a show. Good luck!
In Bill Shakespeare is Dead, one of Shakespeare’s famous plays is split into five short acts. During each act, one person acts as the Stage Manager, and two people are randomly chosen to act out the scene. As they go through the script, the rest of the players will have to fill in missing nouns and verbs randomly drawn from the deck and helpfully shouted when there is a blank part in the script. The Stage Manager chooses which nouns and verbs go where. At the end, you can tally your points and declare a winner, if that’s your sort of thing.
It’s Cards Against Humanity meets Mad-libsian acting meets Shakespearian shouting.
Number of Players: 5 and up.
Time Required: 30 minutes.
Recommended Ages: 15 and up.
