"Okay, so it isn’t a book, strictly speaking, but this amusingly irreverent Shakespeare card game is certainly the perfect gift for all we “bookish theorics” out there. Chris Riddell’s illustrations are immediately recognisable, while the Shakespearean statistics are gleaned from Tim Crouch and Spymonkey’s stage hit The Complete Deaths." Shakespeare Magazine
