I spent yesterday with my youngest and we had a unique and fun day. What did we do? Why we played a special game and ate way too many sweets....LOL Let me expand a bit on that. For Christmas my girl spied in the back of Victoria Magazine (my most fav publication!) and then bought for my gift, the game Pride and Prejudice. A game derived from my favorite book and series. How cool is that? She was so excited to give it to me and I loved receiving it.
We set aside yesterday to play, but first we had to set the mood. We bought some Walker's Shortbread, I brewed the tea and dug around for the DVD of the series of Pride and Prejudice (the version I think is the best) and I ordered a rainy cold London-y kind of day to help set the stage.
The game is cute and fun and as you go around the board you collect shillings, and tokens and answer questions about the book, and the main objective? To get your man to the altar, of course!....LOL I got to be Lizzy and Mr. Darcy but alas, Jane and Mr. Bingley made it to the church on time.
We had the show on in the background, which helped with a few of the questions, and when we were done with the game, we curled up on the sofa and continued to watch the trials and tribulations of the Bennet clan. So much fun! And today I think I will continue to watch the series, gaze out at the rain and work on my embroidery like a good Jane Austen heroine. :)
