Arzamas.academy, the Moscow-based educational website, with the support of the British Council Russia, launches a free Emoji Shakespeare game app for smartphones. 

The idea of this game is to fill in blanks in famous Shakespearean quotes with emoji and it features sonnets, comedies, tragedies, histories, and other works of the great poet and playwright.

From Twelfth Night to Macbeth, from Hamlet to The Taming of the Shrew, from Henry IV to Romeo and Juliet, Emoji Shakespeare offers dozens of challenges.
The Arzamas’ app is a unique contribution to the global Shakespeare Lives programme. It will allow you to get into the spirit of Shakespeare, get to know his works better and maybe even learn something by heart. As digital and playful technologies are one of the best ways of learning and broadening your knowledge!

Shakespeare is as alive as ever!
The application is available on the App Store and Google Play starting from the end of April 2016 in both English and Russian.
