Beowulf: The Legendbeowulf

Here’s the thing: no one gets to be Beowulf. Sure, you’ll fight Grendel, and return to Geatland, and then you’ll watch the hero die against a dragon. Everyone is just a merry member of Beowulf’s band, looking to succeed him as king in the end. Which makes sense, we guess. Just keep those misfortune tokens away from us.

  1. For a high school class project, my daughter and her friends created a board game based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, complete with board, player pieces, action cards and quotation cards, and unifying graphics all (movement of the pieces was based on a player’s knowledge of “Hamlet” and Shakespeare – his life and the world around him). They did an incredible job and there was talk of potentially finding backers to market it. Maybe some day they will jump back on it’s bandwagon!
