Shakespeare edition of Trivial Pursuit is released

A Shakespeare edition of the game Trivial Pursuit has been released.

It has been devised by the Stratford-upon-Avon charity, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

There are 600 questions across six categories — Comedies, Histories, Tragedies, Characters, Biography and Legacy. Each one has been carefully crafted by Shakespeare scholars Dr Nick Walton and Dr Anjna Chouhan.

The game will be sold exclusively in the Trust’s shops and website, with every purchase supporting the charity's conservation of the five Shakespeare family homes and their learning programmes.

As well as questions about Shakespeare’s life and works, there are others that link him to popular culture such as the Harry Potter film series or TV show Dr Who.
