"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that lovers of Pride and Prejudice want to marry Mr. Darcy."
Marrying Mr. Darcy is a strategy card game where players are one of the female characters from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice. Players work to earn points and attract the attention of available suitors. Our heroines do this by attending events and improving their characters, but advantage can be gained by the use of cunning. All of their efforts are in hopes of marrying well and becoming the most satisfied character at the end of the game.
Erika Svanoe, the game's creator said, "I created this game to be the ultimate participatory fan fiction experience for lovers of Pride and Prejudice, the classic novel by Jane Austen. You are able to put yourself in the shoes of your favorite female character, who must marry to secure her comfort and/or happiness. You are affected by who asks you to dance at the ball, Mr. Bingley leaving unexpectedly for London, and a possible elopement with Mr. Wickham. I hope this game will be loved by Janeites, gamers, and high school English teachers who need to trick teens into reading the book.
"So after you've gone through to the sitting room, set up the card table and enjoy the camaraderie and competition of a round of Marrying Mr. Darcy."
