Marrying Mr. Darcy
This card game is based on the classic Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice. It oozes theme. (No book knowledge needed!) Players each take the role of an unmarried woman character from the book. Through card play they try to improve themselves, scoring points for Beauty, Friendliness, Reputation, and Wit and competing for the best marriage proposal—Cunning and Dowry help—from six potential suitors. Events from the book abound, and each group I've played with has had several LOL moments. There's some scope for strategy, but this is primarily a fun romp in another place and time.
