A Parchisi variant. The only real Shakespeare? You get to name characters from plays for bonus movement.

A silly game about running around, trying to spell K-I-N-G-H-A-M-L-E-T. Sounds like H-O-R-S-E.

A trick-taking game, apparently fairly well-themed for Romeo & Juliet.

A well-themed small press game where each player tries to push their own ending for the play.

Collect sets of scenes from Shakespeare's plays--and optinally answer trivia or perform those plays too!
