Game : Title Letters

I first posted about this game way back in 2005, but itโ€™s fun to bring back old posts from time to time because my readership right now is much higher than it was then. Ok, here’s a game that I just thought up while decoding some filenames on my computer. How well do you know your Shakespeare canon? Can you tell the title of a play just by the first letters? For instance TTOHPOD is The Tragedy Of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. Every word (including the/a/of…) is included. Got it? Good.
TFHOTLOKHTE Not all the plays are listed, in case that is not obvious.

  2. Same way as Angela. There'll be an answers post later, right?

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes.
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes.
    5. I can identify the play but not the whole title.
    6. Yes.
    7. Yes.
    8. Yes.
    9. Yes.
    10. Yes. Although I usually abbreviate it as M4M 'cos I'm a cool kid. ;D
    11. Don't you mean TFPOHTFWTLADOHSH? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    13. I can identify the play but not the whole title.
    14. Nnnnngggggno. Drawing a blank, sorry. It'll probably turn out to be really obvious. ๐Ÿ™
    15. I can identify the play but not the whole title.

  3. I could identify most them by a few of the letters. The one that tripped me up was TTOOTMOV because I was stuck on trying to make "merchant" work rather than the correct word.

  4. Further to Darren's comment, I actually got 5 wrong (Duane, you're sneaky! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), but I do know the full title of 13 after all. Oh, and I looked up 14 on the Wikipedia, and it wasn't hugely obvious, so I don't feel like a *total* failure anyway.
