One of my Kickstarter stretch goals is that I would create a reference guide that explains the references in Marrying Mr. Darcy and tells you where the inspiration for each card comes from in the story. I started working on it this week. I'm not sure what the final guide will look like, but here is a sample of intended content.
The Kickstarter campaign for Marrying Mr. Darcy - the Pride and Prejudice Card Game has picked up in the past few days. The stretch goal for the Undead Expansion Pack was reached in record time! The expansion pack will consist of approximately 20 new cards that include undead suitors, becoming cursed, cures for the wounded, battle axes for protection and serious consequences for both the dead and the living at the end of the game.
You can check out our work in progress below. Be sure to check out our Kickstarter campaign in the next few days if you want a copy!
A father & son review team did a review of Marrying Mr. Darcy. They are called "A Dad, a Son, and a Game." I have to admit that 8 year old Luke is my favorite reviewer. His fake cry is something to behold.
There is a game demo at the start, and then the review begins at 8:40. I'll be posting more reviews as we have had a couple done, but I think these two really understood what I was going for.
I haven't updated this blog in a little while, mostly because I've been trying to direct all of my traffic to my Kickstarter page for the duration of the campaign! But I posted a major update on that site yesterday and thought it would be good to update here with general news and our new stretch goals!
We are almost at the halfway point in the campaign and doing splendidly! We are now well over 500 backers. I thought it would be a good time to announce our stretch goals to keep the momentum going through our final 2 weeks. Please continue to share our news with friends, Janeites, and gamers on social media to help us reach the awesome stretch goals briefly outlined below!
$20,000: We will develop an Undead Expansion Pack for those folks who enjoy zombie-like creatures! (This will not change the original game at all, simply a fun, optional addition.)
$25,000: We will open a reward tier that adds a paperback edition of "Pride and Prejudice" with annotation and forward by Erika and original cover art by Erik Evensen.
$30,000: We will do a print run of our Undead Expansion Pack and include it free of charge for all backers who want it and pledge at the $30 reward tier or higher.
$40,000: Over the next year, we will create a version of the game based on Jane Austen's "Emma." All backers will have the option to beta-test the game.
There are more details about each of these levels on our kickstarter page. You can read about them here: kck.st/16bwNlg
We've got more coming up including game reviews, interviews, and are going to keep the momentum up through this middle part of the campaign. Thanks for all your support and keep spreading the word!
