The PBS Playwright Game


Here's a fun one. Start with the premise that you're Shakespeare and you're trying to build a career for yourself as a playwright.  Each screen offers a simple set of choices (normally no more than 2) for you to pick from.  Sometimes it's "Do you write about ancient romans, or oriental warlords?" but sometimes it's more complex, such as when the Censor tells you to cut a scene from Richard II and you get to decide whether to do it or not.  I'm not really sure if it's keeping score or not, or how long it lasts, since I'm at work and don't really have time to play it through.  But it is fun.
