If you really want to know Shakespeare, you have to step inside his world.

One of my most requested guides is for an Elizabethan card game. The guide is called How to Play Noddy. Featured in Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona this card game can be played with a standard deck of cards. It is easy to learn and fun to play for 2 or more players. You can download the instruction manual + history guide right here using this form.

    Hello there, I'm Cassidy Cash.

    I believe that if you want to understand Shakesepeare's works, then learning about the man himself is essential. Each week, I explore the life of William Shakespeare, sharing my discoveries along the way. My work focuses on helping fellow Shakespeareans learn something new about the bard. I specialize in the real life aspects of Shakespeare's lifetime, especially card games! I live in Birmingham, AL with my husband, two boys, and a small zoo of rescue animals. You can read more of my story here on the about page.

    R&J in three minutes delivers precisely on its title, and in so doing has dash, and wit, and (as you might expect), economy.

    Technically, its impressive, as is its lightness of tone. It really highlights both the simplicity of Shakespeares storytelling at the core, adn teh enormous leap he makes from the bare bones of the plot highlighted here, to the sublime treatment he applies ot the final work.

    This film made me smile, and made me lean in to see what happens next, and it made me admire its magic and wizardry. Cassidy Cash has made a memorable and original film.
