Pride and Prejudice: The Board Gamepride and

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the best kind of board games are literary board games. Pick a couple (you can even be Lydia and Wickham, if you must) and get them to the Parish Church! Whoever dodges the most pitfalls and gets married first wins.

One thought on “Literary Board Games”

  1. For a high school class project, my daughter and her friends created a board game based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, complete with board, player pieces, action cards and quotation cards, and unifying graphics all (movement of the pieces was based on a player’s knowledge of “Hamlet” and Shakespeare – his life and the world around him). They did an incredible job and there was talk of potentially finding backers to market it. Maybe some day they will jump back on it’s bandwagon!
