About

Jane Austen's Matchmaker is a card game for 3 to 6 players. Designed by Richard Wolfrik Galland with original illustrations by Manon Delacroix.

Place your Ladies into society and propose to other players' Ladies with your Gentlemen. You choose whether your characters marry for love or money. At the end of the game the player who has collected characters with the most ‘Virtue’ (the sort of characters Jane Austen approved of - i.e. NOT Mr. Collins or Lt. Wickham) wins!

A copy of the rules can be downloaded from here: www.janeaustensmatchmaker.co.uk

Contents
1 tuck-end box, 1 rules sheet, 56 beautifully illustrated, full-colour cards.

The cards will be illustrated by Manon Delacroix. She has already produced 8 portraits for the game and will complete the remaining 44 characters once we have achieved our funding goal. Please see more examples of her work here: www.artbymanon.com

Jane Austen’ Matchmaker features the following characters. The names in bold have already been illustrated by Manon Delacroix.

Risks and challenges

We will be working with Carta Mundi who are the world's leading playing card and card games manufacturer so I have every confidence that they will meet our print deadlines. Similarly the artist I commissioned delivered the first eight illustrations ahead of schedule. No plan is immune to delays and unforeseen pitfalls of course, but I hope that the delivery dates given are realistic.
