Typing “Shakespeare” into Sporcle’s search engine gathers you over 1,400 quizzes. A little more on the silly side are quizzes entitled Murdered By Shakespeare for which you an see my above average score below, Baby Names by Shakespeare or, my personal favorite, Shakespeare’s Kitchen in which you must name the food and drink items mentioned in all of Shakespeare’s plays. I never said things didn’t get advanced.

The most popular of the quizzes dedicated to Shakespeare’s literary canon are Shakespeare in Plain English, definitely one for revision, Complete the Shakespeare Quote, also pretty necessary for students of Shakespeare and most importantly, a quiz entitled Shakespeare or Hip-Hop, which as you can see was quite challenging for me to differentiate.
