Miranda’s Gambit

This is a four-player game that simulates the struggle for power among four characters in William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. In their own ways, Prospero, Miranda, Ariel, and Caliban seek release from their island bondage. The shipwreck of the King of Naples sets in motion a competition among these characters to fulfill their hearts’ desires before the drama draws to a close. All you need to play is a standard deck of 52 playing cards, a fair recollection of lines from Shakespeare’s play, and a few willing friends.
