Svanoe took her deep rooted love towards Pride and Prejudice and developed Marrying Mr. Darcy: The Pride and Prejudice Board Game. This is the first official gaming project that she has done.
For those that are unfamiliar with Pride and Prejudice, Svanoe explained some of the history about the time period in the novel, and how this affects the game play for the board game.
“The women of Pride and Prejudice had very limited options as middle to upper class educated ladies in Regency period society. They basically had to marry in order to maintain a respectable lifestyle. All of Austen’s novels are based around this central idea, which is completely antiquated today, but was a huge part of Austen’s reality.
The mechanics of Marrying Mr. Darcy come from the idea that a lady could try to improve herself to catch the interest of an eligible suitor, and hopefully be lucky enough to receive a proposal,” said Svanoe.
