Cover from Jane Austen's Matchmaker: a romantic moment between a lady and a gentlemanJane Austen's Matchmaker

This little card game is charming! And that's what players have to do: play their 'gentlemen' to charm the 'ladies' into 'marrying' them. Brilliant! And just so Austen.

Players start with an initial heroine (taken from one of the novels), add other ladies (from this or other books) to her set and propose to other players' ladies. Both players gain from a marriage, but the ladies seem to be worth more points than the gentlemen, in general. Mr Darcy may be a catch, but there are plenty of bounders too!

This is a neat, tactical game, thoroughly in keeping with its theme and it charmed me when I first saw it. If you prefer less charm and more brain eating, try adding the with Zombies expansion (below).

For 3-6 players, aged 8+, playing time 30 minutes: £6.00 special offer (£5.00 without tax outside the EU)

The box for Jane Austen's Matchmaker with Zombies…with Zombies (expansion)

What game isn't improved by adding some brain-hungry undead? Yes, the zombie apocalypse has come to the genteel land of Jane Austen's novels.

While most players are still trying to make advantageous marriages for their ladies and gentlemen, one (chosen randomly) is cursed. The cursed player draws cards from the new deck of cards, giving them opportunities to turn characters into zombies. Other cards provide weapons, allowing uninfected characters to fight back, and events that can help or hinder them.

The cursed player has a different victory condition, of course, which gives them a tricky challenge and makes this a good addition to the basic game.

For 3-6 players, aged 12+, playing time 30 minutes: £6.00 special offer (£5.00 without tax outside the EU)
