What did you think of Mini Jane Austen Jeopardy? What was your favorite part about it? Was there anything that could have been done better? Leave a comment! I'd love some feedback!

 God Bless,
God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. This was very fun, and I'd love to play again some time! I know it would look less like a Jeopardy board, but maybe you could create a different format so that the far right column doesn't run behind your sidebar?

    1. Thanks for the input! I might be able to code something so it still looks like Jeopardy but doesn't run into the side bar.

  2. This was such a lovely idea! Thank you for the beautiful banner and button! I thought the categories were very clever. I almost got stumped with the mashed-up characters, but I figured it out! Thank you for such fun!

  3. Lizzy, thank you so much for this delightful game and especially for my lovely banner and button! I'm going to have so much fun using them!
    The game was very well thought out yet easy to play. The only question I didn't dare answer was the one about Marianne because I felt I just didn't have enough of a clue to hazard a guess, but if I was as familiar with the book as I should be it might have been easier. Really the only way it could be improved is by making it a longer game with more rounds! hehe Thank you! :)
