Marrying Mr. Darcy is a role-playing game where players are one of the female characters from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice. Players work to improve themselves and become more desirable as potential wives for the available Suitors. The ladies 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 securing the husband that will make them the most satisfied character at the end of the game.

Game play is divided into two stages: the initial Courtship Stage and the concluding Proposal Stage.

The Courtship Stage is when players try to improve their Heroine’s chances of happiness by earning points playing Character Cards, and acquiring or playing Cunning Cards. Character Points help you to attract Suitors, and also count toward your total number of Character points at the end of the game.Cunning Points do not count towards your building your Character. However, the Heroine who has acquired the most Cunning will be the first player to enter the Proposal Stage later in the game, putting her at a significant advantage.

The Proposal Stage begins when Event Cards have been played. In this stage, players will roll to see which Suitor proposes to them, decide if they will marry them, and calculate their final score.

Cute, fun game.

I have never read or seen any Austen works, but my wife got a good chuckle and fun from this game. Given the theme it seems to be a hoot.

A Jane Austen fan must!

Pick your heroine, grow your character through events that take place in the book and try to attract the marriage proposal that best suits your heroine... or not! Mr. Darcy surprise proposal!?! Forgot you Mr. Collins, I'm going for the boy on the box!

While a Jane Austen fan will know the characters, the events, and get the most pleasure out of the game, I had a lot of friends (both male and female) who played this game that didn't. We had the most fun just roleplaying, calling each other sisters and shouting 'PARTY CARD' while trying to be ladylike. You'll have the most fun just throwing yourself into the character you play, just like a lot of games. A 5 star for Austin fans like myself, this random adventure card game taking place in Jane Austin's time will likely be a 4 star to everyone else.

Great card game for Jane Austen fans

Picked this up for my wife, who is a big Pride and Prejudice fan. Let's just say.. she enjoys this game much more than I. You pick one of the main female characters and then going through a deck of events and character traits, you try to build things up so that you have the best chance of winning the love of your male suitor. If you take away the theme elements, it's an okay game, but this is really all about having fun in the P&P world!!!
