Alas, Poor Yorick

You might not realize it, but board games are making a comeback in a big way. For years, Europeans in general and Germans in particular have been spending less time watching television and more time playing board games with friends and family. Besides being interactive and engaging, board games sharpen the mind and pair well with both beer and wine.

Alas, Poor Yorick is a board game I’m working on with my friend Meghan. It will involve holding a crystal skull of vodka beer and delivering a series of soliloquies concerning the late Yorick. As a bonus, it will also incorporate the whimsical pseudoscience of phrenology.

Pictures, rules, game board and possibly audio extracts to follow.
