Marrying Mr. Darcy is a role-playing card game where players are one of the female characters from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice. Players work to improve themselves and become more desirable as potential wives for the available Suitors. The ladies do this by attending Events and improving their Characters, but advantage can be gained by the use of Cunning. All of their efforts are in hopes of securing the husband that will make them the most satisfied character at the end of the game.

Game play is divided into two stages: the initial Courtship Stage and the concluding Proposal Stage. The Courtship Stage is when players try to improve their Heroine’s chances of happiness by earning points playing Character Cards, and acquiring or playing Cunning Cards. Character Points help you to attract Suitors, and also count toward your total number of Character points at the end of the game. Cunning Points do not count towards your building your Character. However, the Heroine who has acquired the most Cunning will be the first player to enter the Proposal Stage later in the game, putting her at a significant advantage.

The Proposal Stage begins when Event Cards have been played. In this stage, players will roll to see which Suitor proposes to them, decide if they will marry them, and calculate their final score. Can you win the heart of Mr. Darcy?

Legend of the Five Rings CCG: A Line In the Sand Booster Display
$143.64 SRP

In the unrelenting summer heat of the Colonies, tempers begin to fray as those with allegiance to Iweko Seiken and Iweko Shibatsu take an increasingly militant stance against those who disagree with their philosophies. While the heirs themselves do not advocate military conflict against the forces of their brother, their followers lack the same sense of discretion and self-control.

As temperatures soar, self-restraint begins to fail, and blood will be spilled in the name of Imperial succession.

A Line in the Sand is the second expansion following the acclaimed Ivory Edition, the newest base set for the premiere interactive CCG: Legend of the Five Rings. With 16 cards booster packs, it provides an ideal complement to the base set, and a good alternative to the first expansion, for the purpose of drafting L5R.

A line has been drawn in the sand of the Colonies. Who will cross it first and escalate simple tensions into a full blown conflict?

36 booster packs per display

There will yet be an empire of serpents that will bring to an end the tyranny of the mammals, and the Second City will be but the first to burn.

Siege: Heart of Darkness is a brand new way to play multiplayer Legend of the Five Rings, the premiere interactive collectible card game, pitting multiple players as defenders of the city against one assailant piloting the Siege deck. Face the dread Dark Naga forces with either the 3 decks included in this product or with your own and take part in the defense of the Second City for the glory of the Empire of Rokugan. You are the hero, the choice is yours!

-3 Ivory-legal pre-constructed decks for the defenders of the city.
