For more than four centuries scholars have argued over the identity of the mysterious Dark Lady of William Shakespeare’s sonnets. In Black Sonata, you will find yourself in Shakespeare’s London, circa 1600, in pursuit of the shadowy Lady. Can you finally solve English literature’s greatest mystery? Or will the Dark Lady elude you too?

  •  The Fair Youth expansion adds an additional deduction task to the game: you must discover where in London the Fair Youth is hiding.
  •  The Rendezvous challenges you to discover which of the seven landscape features acted as a meeting place for Shakespeare and his Dark Lady.
  •  The Rival Poet adds a second pawn that stalks the streets and interacts with the player via simple movement rules
  •  Waypoints and Traces gives you two tools to mark and track the Dark Lady's location at a particular point in the stealth deck.
  • And The Darker Ladies replace the clue cards in the base game, giving each Dark Lady a new set of characteristics and presenting a slightly harder deduction challenge.

 The Fair Youth Expansion

 Black Sonata Base Game



This set of mini-expansions adds new tools and challenges to the base game. Each expansion can be played separately or in combination with any other.

The Fair Youth expansion adds an additional deduction task to the game: you must discover where in London the Fair Youth is hiding. Bystanders will give you a clue for which way the Youth went from your current location, but if you are already at his actual location you will be told a lie. Deduce his location to surprise him there, or for extra points catch him and the Dark Lady together, unmasking them both at the same time.

The Rendezvous challenges you to discover which of seven landscape features acted as a meeting place for Shakespeare and his Dark Lady. Querying a location gives you a number from 1 to 3, being the number of steps away from the current location that the Rendezvous symbol can be found. Deduce which map symbol represents the Rendezvous, then confront and unmask the Dark Lady in a location with that symbol at it.

The Rival Poet adds a second pawn that stalks the streets and interacts with the player via simple movement rules. Choose from two different poets to make the game easier or harder. The Elusive Poet tries to stay one step ahead of you, but if you catch him he will reveal a clue about the Dark Lady. In contrast, The Aggressive Poet hounds and chases you, potentially spoiling your plans to intercept the Dark Lady.

Waypoints and Traces gives you two tools to mark and track the Dark Lady's location at a particular point in the stealth deck. And The Darker Ladies replace the clue cards in the base game, giving each Dark Lady a new set of characteristics and presenting a slightly harder deduction challenge.
