Macbeth Cluedo Game Cards
This is a game to rehearse and consolidate the key language used for the characters and the settings in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It can be used for a range of age groups and with learners at various levels of fluency. It is a game for 3-6 players based on the traditional Cluedo game where players have to guess the murderer, the place the murder occurred and the weapon.
Learners practise the names of the main characters and language to describe various settings in the play: at the feast, on the heath, etc. The game provides a natural opportunity to repeat specific target language, e.g. I think King Duncan was murdered by Ross on the battlefield with a sword. The game is not based around predicting the plot of Macbeth; it is a fun way of learning the names of the characters and practising using some of the key vocabulary.
