Marrying Your Fictional Dreamboat: A Game

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that when all other manner of adaptations have been made involving Pride and Prejudice, a board game must soon follow.  That's where Marrying Mr. Darcy comes in.

That's right, goblins and ghouls, there's now a board game about one of Jane Austen's most beloved novels. Before you sigh and get pessimistic on this post, I have to tell you that it looks kind of fun.  It was also a product made possible through kickstarter donations. 

First, it's a strategy game where players are split into two groups: the suitors and the heroines.  The goal of the game is to marry happy and well.

Secondly, the game is split into two stages: courtship & proposal.   The most exciting stage is, of course, courtship, where you play to gain points to develop your heroine or suitor through event and character cards.

I haven't played it, but it seems pretty fun and a new unique way to interact with Jane Austen's novel. I love strategy games so this looks cool and fun for a night in with friends and food. 

Check out the website or the shop for more information.
