Marrying Mr. Darcy: Undead Expansion

Disclosure: I did not receive any compensation for this review. I just do it for the undead masses. Marrying Mr. Darcy is copyright Evensen Creative. Images used for reference and commentary.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a game about marrying Mr. Darcy can only be enhanced by zombies.

This is a small expansion of 20 cards that add an extra obstacle to your pursuit of the perfect husband – the undead! New cards include undead mob attacks, as well as weapons and items. These can help you conquer or avoid the zombie hordes.

The biggest change is that the heroines and their suitors can become zombies themselves. This drastically changes the proposal stage. You don’t want to marry a rotting corpse! But…if you have been zombified, you can turn and claim one of the menfolk – even if he’s already married! It all depends on the roll of the dice.

Like in the original game, the heroine with the highest points wins – whether she is married, an old maid, or undead.

This is a small but worthy expansion. I would like a few more cards, and many of the zombie cards simply require you to exclaim something to get a +1 on your roll. I do not like having to exclaim things! People are always misunderstanding me.

The Undead Expansion is recommended for people who like both Mr. Darcy and zombies. The base game is required to play. It can also be coupled with the Emma Expansion.
