Guess The Jane Austen Novel Game!



Below are groups of three names (first names, surnames and place names)  each from a Jane Austen novel or unfinished story (Lady Susan, Sanditon, The Watsons). The names I chose should make it a bit trickier to guess which novel each trio refers to but not too hard.

To Play: Guess which Jane Austen novel or unfinished story the groups of three names below refer to. Leave your guesses in a comment. I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish. Answers will be posted next Saturday.

Scoring: 10 points for each correctly guessed novel or unfinished story. High score of 90 points can be earned!

Guess The Jane Austen Novels!

#1. Emma, Elizabeth, Blake
#2. Christopher, Mary, Tom
#3. Catherine, Manwaring, Alicia
#4. Lucy, John, Cleveland
#5. Frank, Isabella, Cole
#6. Frederick, Rooke, Sophia
#7. Anne, Yougne, Charles
#8. James, Woodston, Sarah
#9. Arthur, Clara, Heywood


Looking forward to your guesses!











P.S. Sorry for the lack of games the last couple weeks, I've been busy and un-inspired. Hopefully games will be more regular in the future!

Oooh, this is tricky! I'm afraid I don't know very many of these at all! :( But let's have a go anyway, shall we?

#4 is Sense and Sensibility, maybe?
#5 is Emma, I know that.:P
#9 is Sanditon.

Those are the only ones I know. :)
