Codex: Card-Time Strategy is a customizable, non-collectable card game set in the Fantasy Strike universe that's inspired by real-time strategy video games such as Starcraft and Warcraft 3.
This Starter Set lets you try out the game with the Bashing and Finesse heroes. Once you go beyond the Starter Set, you'll get to play 3 heroes at at time and have access to a lot more cards during the course of a game. That said, the Starter Set helps you learn how the Codex system works with fewer cards that are simpler.
The Marrying Mr. Darcy: Undead Expansion adds the threat of the walking undead to the heroines' attempts to build their character and marry well.
Elizabeth Bennet and the other ladies must now face the possibility of undead attacks, undead suitors, and curses, while still trying to marry the suitor the will earn them the most happiness. The ladies may use weapons, stealth, and cures to try to make it to the end of the game, but may end up undead themselves.
Marrying Mr. Darcy is a role-playing 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, as well as utilising their Cunning to gain advantage over each other. All of their efforts are in the 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. This can be done by 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.
