Final Round 1 Battle: LADY MACBETH vs. BEAR

Well, Friday’s match-up provided a small upset.  Juliet defeated Caliban, contrary to a lot of early tournament predictions by individuals.  She will next square off against Prospero in the semi-finals (later this week). Today is the final first round battle – and perhaps the most anticipated… Lady Macbeth vs. The Bear (from A Winter’s Tale).  […]

Shakespearean Deadliest Warrior: Juliet vs. Caliban!

Yesterday’s Round 1 challenge was a nail-biter, with an upset result.  A close battle in all format (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) found that Puck defeated Iago in a photo finish!  The mischievous fellow will square off against Hamlet in the second round match next week. For today we have our second-last Round 1 battle.  Juliet vs. […]

A tough choice: IAGO vs. PUCK

Yesterday’s challenge was not much of one for the Moor… Othello wiped the floor with Cassius, defeating him on Facebook and Twitter.  He advances to the next round to square off against Richard (that should be a good match).

Both are strong military men.  Can […]

Round 1: Hamlet and Don John

Well, we had a small upset in Friday’s showdown… Despite the predictions by many that Coriolanus would cruise to a victory and, in fact, possibly go all the way, the general was bested by that old fool, Falstaff.  It was a very close battle and the fool won by one vote. Continuing first round action, […]
