I know it’s going to happen. One of these days I’m going to get contacted with a press release for a new Shakespeare book that’s burning up the New York Times Best-seller list, written by Alexi Sargeant.
If you’re a long-time reader of the blog you might recognize that name, because we’ve known Alexi for at least seven years – here he is helping write some Shakespeare sequels in August, 2010.
Among his many other endeavours, he’s also designed a Shakespeare board game that we’ll all be getting each other for Christmas next year called No Holds Bard. I thought it was still in stealth mode, but heck if he’s going to write about it on his own site, I’m going to help him get the word out:
I’ve been working on-and-off for a few years on a Shakespeare mashup fighting game called “No Holds Bard.” Players battle each other as characters like Hamlet, Macbeth, Beatrice, and Cleopatra—and even the Bear from The Winter’s Tale. It’s meant to be geeky, exciting, and educational.
I can’t wait to see the finished product, Alexi! Remember us when you’re famous!
