Each of these cards, stunningly illustrated by artist Rikey Austin, includes a quotation as well as a caption explaining the scene. Put in order, the captions tell the outline of each story. The plays included are A Midsummers Night's Dream, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest and Twelfth Night.

The object of the game is to study a card for 10 seconds and then answer a question based on the roll of a die. If the question is answered correctly, the card is kept, and the person with the most number of cards after 5 or 10 minutes is the winner.
