This game idea was suggested by birdienl after I posted the Classic Literature In Other Words game back in July. Thanks birdienl!
The concept of this game is to identify the period drama couples based on the clues given. These couples are from various period dramas and classic literature stories. Some of these couples are not what you might call main characters but all of them get engaged and/or married during the course of their story.
I have a long list of couples so I chose randomly for this game. Let me know if you like this type of game and I'll do others.
To Play: Read the clues below and leave a comment guessing which period drama couple I'm thinking of and which period drama or story they come from. Guess as many times as you wish. I'll respond with your score. The answers will be posted next Saturday.
Scoring: Four points for each correctly guessed gentleman, lady and period drama (or classic story). A total score of 180 points can be earned.
