We end our Pride and Prejudice Play-offs with Elizabeth Bennet’s victory over her husband, Fitzwilliam Darcy!
Did you guess that Elizabeth Bennet would win it all?
I hope you had fun with this little game! I had a blast, and got some fun comments along the way!
I’m planning to arrange a similar game sometime this spring that will match up characters from lots of different Jane Austen books! I’m going to “rig” the game a bit for the starting match to pit characters against other characters who are similar in position and behavior. Wouldn’t it be fun to see who will win when Lady Catherine de Bourgh goes up against General Tilney, or Elizabeth Elliott against Tom Bertram? Who is the worse hypochondriac, Mary Elliott or Mr. Woodhouse? Who is the best hero, Henry Tilney or George Knightley? There should be some fun matches there!
Got a favorite match-up I haven’t mentioned? Please feel free to comment here or email me! I may or may not be able to include your pairing, but I will try! Please keep suggested characters to those in the six complete novels: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey.
