Hey there,
It's it just me, or anyone else is a bit surprised that many people are referring to Characters in this game as 'Actors cards'?
It's nothing but I find it a bit weird.
Mix of Characters in your own play is what makes this game hilarious for me. I wonder how my last play would go with Lear, Hamlet, Lady Macbeth and Beatrice?!
Loads of blood and slow thinking. Long bloody show
I LOVE THE GAME. LOVE THE THEME!!!
Thank you to anyone who was involved in development of this great game.
Cheers

Well, the characters are played by actors, right? So no, not really weird to me.

But you're right, this game is again deceptively good. Not sure I'd rate it up there with Myrmes, but the art is better and the theme works rather well too.

Same here.
But. Let's say if there was Edmund Kean card there
He played almost all of Shakespeares leading characters
I wonder if expansion could do something like that, for instance, there are Actors cards (there are at least 15 famous ones from that time), and you have to assign character card to them in addition to costumes....
Oh, now I wrote it down, or doesn't sound that impossible at all

I think I prefer it the way it is, tbh.
