Disclosure: I did not receive any compensation for this review. But Mr. Darcy is mine now. Aw yeah, be jealous! Marrying Mr. Darcy is copyright Evensen Creative. Images used for reference and commentary.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune needs to be snatched up ASAP.
In Marrying Mr. Darcy, players try to snag the most suitable husband. You each play as one of six Pride & Prejudice heroines – Lizzy, Jane, Lydia, Charlotte, Caroline and Georgiana. Different heroines get a certain number of points depending on which man they bag. If you can’t get anyone to marry you, you will end up an old maid!
Heroines all have their own attributes or special abilities. Lizzy starts the game with 3 wit, whereas Caroline picks up two character cards instead of one, choosing one to discard. This means you discard one of the two cards you have picked up, not any card from your hand.
When the deck of event cards is depleted, the proposals come flooding in. Hopefully. You best pray you get to the man of your dreams before some other wench. If you can’t bag a man, you become an old maid – but depending on your character card score, you could still win. You don’t need no Mr. Darcy!
Marrying Mr. Darcy is a fun game, best enjoyed by fans of Jane Austen and Pride & Prejudice. Look out for the Emma Expansion and the Undead Expansion.
