"... that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of BRAAAIIIINNNSSS.”
Testing the supposition that everything is better with zombies, a Kickstarter has been launched (and is already funded) for a zombie expansion to Jane Austen's Matchmaker, the popular card game of love, marriage and social domination.
The original game describes itself as:
"a sociable card game for 3 to 6 players, featuring characters from the works of Jane Austen... Use your matchmaking skills to plot advantageous marriages. Protect your ladies from penniless rogues while using your charming scoundrels to wicked effect. All's fair in love and social climbing!Designer Richard Wolfrik Galland, of Warm Acre Games, explains the nature of this fan-requested Kickstarter:
"In this conjugal crossover you can recreate the couplings as Austen intended, or rewrite her world entirely! Would you rather see Mr Darcy walk down the aisle with Emma Woodhouse?"
"This expansion consists of 50 new cards and rules to supplement the original game.The Kickstarter is running until February 26 and currently has only two levels of buy-in: one gets you just the expansion and one gets you the expansion plus the original game.
"You must still make advantageous marriages for your ladies and gentleman but now with the inconvenience of an undead apocalypse which threatens to make a bloody mess of your wedding plans."
Check out the game's Kickstarter page for more information.
And, of course, by sheer coincidence we also have this to look forward to next month:
