Please, send your guess on what Shakespeare play out  of this list it is until 12 pm EST on November 30, 2014 to


The rules:

Starting November 1, 2014 I will post one out of 30 chalk on blackboard storyboard of a Shakespeare play in emoji code per day through several outlets. You have till midnight EST (that’s 5 am Greenwich Mean Time) to send the title of the play of the day to

One entry per day, but you can participate every day. There will be one winner drawn randomly on December 1 Hunger Games style – the more right entries you submit (30 would obviously be the highest possible number of entries per person), the higher the number of times your name is in the pot, the higher the possibility of you winning.

The storyboards are made up like pages from medieval manuscripts complete with an illumination each. The illustration picks up on the play. I dare to say in a couple of cases you can base your guess on this illustration alone or how many plays do you know about a handkerchief?

On ten days I will post additional clues hidden in a text about some ideas I feel like sharing about the play in question. And whenever I feel like it I will post quotes from the plays.

The Code

The code used is based on emoji. It is yours to crack. But I compiled some hints that might be useful here.
