You may have already figured out that there’s actually not much difference between the two houses. If only the Montagues and Capulets had figured that out a little earlier, too! But they didn’t, not until it was too late. That’s why this play has been sometimes called the “Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedie of Romeo and Juliet.” But, if you really want to choose a side, hmmmm, let’s seeeeeee…Montague or Capulet…well my initial feeling is that you’re Capulet if you wrote more Bs than As, and Montague if you chose more As than Bs. Thanks for playing!
