Here's a picture of a Hamlet themed board game, called Ho-ratio, (because he's our favourite character)  I made for my friend Amy as a leaving present. We've been studying it in English and there's only been mainly two of us in the class.

This is a close up of the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, King Claudius, and Gertrude game pieces. I used a Frustration game which I took apart and put back together again.

This is young Osric, Polonius, Laertes and Ophelia. I made the heads with 4 tablespoons of flour, 1 tablespoon of salt and enough water to make it stick together. I then cooked them in the oven at gas mark 0.5 (basically the lowest our cooker goes) for 15 minutes. I then painted each with acrylic paints.

I guess you could make one for anything. I'd like to make a Harry Potter one next. Any comments would be welcome!

That's fantastic! I love the little game pieces. Is the characters' hair made from the same flour/salt/water mixture as the rest of them?

The English major in me is giddy with delight.

It's not mess; it's organized chaos.

Yeah, things like Claudius' beard are made from flour/salt/water. I used cotton for Ophelia and Gertrude's hair though because it was too complicated to plait the flour mixture!

Oh my gosh! I'm an English major, and a huge Shakespeare nerd, so I absolutely love this! It's such a great idea, simple and lovely. Great job!
