A Shakespeare edition of the popular family quiz game Trivial Pursuit has been launched!
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, an independent charity that protects Shakespeare heritage sites in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon, has brought the game to life thanks to help from games company, Winning Moves.
The categories for the questions are: Comedies, Histories, Tragedies, Characters, Biography, and Legacy. Each of the 600 questions, running across the 6 categories, have been written by Shakespeare scholars Dr Nick Walton and Dr Anjna Chouhan from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s award-winning education team, and verified by its Honorary President, Professor Sir Stanley Wells.
The Bitesize version of the game is priced at £12.99 and every purchase supports the important work done to conserve the five Shakespeare family homes as well as the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s crucial and historical collections; and extensive education programmes.
