Marrying Mr. Darcy: Emma Expansion | Tabletop Review

Disclosure: I did not receive any compensation for this review. I just like playing at meddling in the lives of others. Marrying Mr. Darcy is copyright Evensen Creative. Images used for reference and commentary.

For fans of Jane Austen and Emma comes a game expansion that turns Marrying Mr. Darcy into Marrying Mr. Knightley.

The Emma Expansion includes six heroines, five suitors, and a brand new event deck. The die and character card deck from the base game remain the same and are needed to play. It also includes three Undead cards, so you can play with the Undead Expansion. Be prepared for the Undead Expansion to refer to characters from Pride & Prejudice. You can choose to substitute them for Emma characters or pretend there is a crossover zombie apocalypse.

The biggest changes are the matchmaking, blunder and revelation cards – because Emma is all about getting up in people’s business! This spices up gameplay, especially if someone is playing as Emma and can choose to steal matchmaking cards.

Marrying Mr. Knightley – as I insist on calling it – is a great game for fans of Jane Austen and Emma. There are enough noticeable differences to Marrying Mr. Darcy that make the Emma Expansion worthwhile.
