Bards Dispense Profanity

If you prefer Shakespeare’s comedies over tragedies, turn your attention immediately to this bawdy party game based on Cards Against Humanity. In Apples to Apples fashion, one scenario card is played (“Give me liberty, or give me ______,” “I’m sorry, this table is reserved for ______”), and players pick the funniest noun in their hand, all taken from the Bard’s work (“Cupid’s butt-shaft,” “little tidy Bartholomew boar-pig”).
