7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

    It might be reasonable to accept “Buckingham” or “Gloucester” for the dukes and earls in the history plays, since the characters refer to each other and themselves this way — Henry V addresses “Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester”

      I came down here to comment on exactly this, so instead I’ll just second it. I put in “Kent,” “Gloucester,” etc. and thought “I guess they didn’t have as many lines as I thought.” Most of the time they’re listed as such in the script as well.

    Also, Enobarbus is spelled wrong (missing second b).

    these have been fixed – let me know of any others.

    I believe you’ve confused together a couple of different Warwicks. The one in the Henry IV and Henry V plays is Richard Beauchamp, the 13th Earl. The one in the Henry VI plays is Richard Neville, the 16th Earl, son-in-law of the 13th Earl. Same thing with Buckingham – the one in Henry VI Part 2 is the 1st Duke; the one in Richard III is his grandson, the second duke (and the one in Henry VIII is the latter’s son, the third duke)

      ah..the source site had them combined – i’ll see if can get the numbers for them separately.
