Play cards with Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet as King and Queen of Hearts, Henry Crawford as Ace Rogue, and many more of Jane Austen's most memorable characters. Add some 19th-century drama to your favourite card games or learn to play Regency games featured in Austen's stories with the help of an accompanying booklet.
Included in this boxed set are 54 cards, each featuring illustrations of Jane Austen's most famous characters. The cards also feature the standard playing card suits, numbers and court cards, so they can be used in exactly the same way as normal playing cards. Suits are themed on character traits, with hearts for the Heroines and Heroes and spades for the Fools and Bores.
The Regency games included in the instruction booklet are Commerce, Casino, Loo, Whist, and Speculation.
The cards won't crack or bend when shuffled or flexed, and the box makes them easy to store and take with you.
This is a really great gift for a bookworm or a fan of Jane Austen's.
