A Truth Universally Acknowledged

January 14, 2013 | by

In honor of the two hundredth anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, one might do many things: reread the classic 1813 comedy of manners, watch one of the many adaptations, engage in a little country dancing. May we suggest a genteel round of Pride and Prejudice: The Board Game? Play Darcy or Elizabeth, deal with misunderstandings and cads, travel from Longbourne to Pemberley. The goal, of course, is to end with a wedding.

    Thank you! I found it on eBay and a couple of game resale sights, but I don’t know that it is in general circulation!

    The game is sold at ashgrovepress.com and was created by a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America.
