Him: "You started playing the Pride and Prejudice Trivia game without me?"
Me: "Oh, I only looked at a few cards! I didn't know you wanted to play! I can start over!"
(She says enthusiastically)
Him: (Stares at me.)
Me: "Wait, you are kidding...."
Him: "Of course I am kidding."
Me: (walks away, not sure if I should be more disappointed about my own gullibility or the loss of the opponent)
The Pride and Prejudice Trivia Game is fun and cute and on sale for $15.99 at Amazon right now.
I think it makes a great gift for someone who loves Pride and Prejudice.
Do I see myself playing this game with friends - not really.
It is designed for a pretty small portion of the population.
(And yet - I bought it...)
The questions are directly from the book with a few about Jane Austen.
Who said what, sequences of events and facts.
I flipped through the cards quickly when I opened the box.
The tall stack on the left are the ones I got right.
Sample question from that stack: Who declared that Mr. Darcy is not to be laughed at?
The medium stack in the middle ate the ones I got wrong.
Sample question from that stack: How much money did Mrs. Bennet say Lydia Bennet could have for her wedding clothes?
(I think reading all the P&P spin offs made it harder to remember which facts are really from Austen herself and which ones have been added by other authors.For example, there wasn't a single question about the wet shirt / lake scene. While I KNOW it wasn't in the text, I feel as though it was implied.)
And the small stack on the right, those are the Free Point cards.
Sample from that stack: free points
Ways to use this game:
I will most likely place this game in my guest room for my guests to flip through.
I might put all the trivia cards in a glass bowl on the guest room dresser.
You could pull out all the cards with people's names on them and use them for a game of charades.
My over all take - it is a novelty item that makes a nice gift.
I do not see someone really using this much - however, if you gave them a leather bound edition of Pride and Prejudice - it would probably fall into the same category.
