You may not be surprised to hear that I enjoy a good competition. Here at our offices we relish a few friendly contests each year. Among the most popular is our annual Halloween costume competition, where I always play to win. Of course, we have a few extra-creative editors who steal the show, but we all enjoy a good laugh as each contestant makes an appearance.
As Thanksgiving approaches and we look forward to spending some extra time with family and friends, I’m sure more than a few of you will dust off a few board games. In my family there’s always some witty banter as we see who goes broke trying to pay rent at Park Place in Monopoly or who has managed to save enough for retirement in the Game of Life.
This year, we have a new game causing a stir. The talented minds at Ash Grove Press, Inc. have turned Jane Austen’s famed novel Pride and Prejudice into a charming board game! Answer questions like “Where had Elizabeth discovered a place ‘where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste’?” and “In whose opinion does Mr. Bingley hold the highest regard?” to advance your character. Who wins? Well, the person who first makes it to the parish church for marriage, of course.
The kind people at Ash Grove are offering you the chance to win a copy of this clever game just in time for the holidays.
I thought I’d make a little competition out of selecting the winner. Answer the question below in the comments section. We’ll randomly select a winner next Monday from those of you who answer correctly.
What is Mrs. Bennet’s primary goal for her daughters?
