You can view this in a larger size or download and print it off to play a game yourself HERE! If you're at a loss for characters to include in your MASH, check out this handy set of lists from the Republic of Pemberley. (And if you have no idea how to play, you might want to check this out.)
And don't forget to give yourself some NOT so good answers! There's gotta be some risk here — sometimes you end up with a Collins, and there's no help for it...
I didn't put means of travel on the cheat sheet, but feel free to add it in!

  1. Haha, it's been so long since I played MASH! Loved this video and your Austenized version. I did it myself and apparently I'm going to marry Mr. Knightley (score!), we'll be living at Northanger Abbey (not sure how that'll work, but hey, if we can wrest it away from General Tilney's iron grasp, I'm cool with that...), have 5 kids, and travel by means of stagecoach (I guess those 5 kids are draining Mr. Knightley's pocketbook dry, if we can't even afford a gig or something. Or maybe purchasing Northanger Abbey cost a pretty penny). The Gardiners will be living next door to us (I guess that'll be a change of scene for them, compared to Cheapside), and I'll die of "old" age. All in all, not a bad life! ;)

    1. Hmm, Knightley must really love his abbeys. From Donwell to Northanger... Hmm, that sounds like the makings of an adaptation. ;)

  2. I haven't played this in years. I just went with what you had already created. Kill me now! I married Wickham and we lived in Bath lodgings. We never had any kids. Our neighbors are the Gardiners and we drive a curricle. I died of mortification. Must do again so I have a chance at a less than miserable life. LOL!

    1. Haha! I think I'd die of mortification if I was married to Wickham, too. ;P

  3. THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER. I mean, I had to play it a dozen times to get an acceptable answer (Bingley/Pemberley/Woodhouse-Knightleys/Walk/TrueLoveNeverDies) but that's expected, yes? (Psst...Sophia....do-overs....remember those???)

    1. Cheater. ;)

      (Don't worry, a few weeks before I recorded this I had a practice round, and let's just say, had things turned out that way on cam, I would have started over. Never happened, nothing to see here...)

  4. This has turned out interestingly for sure! I am married to Fitzwilliam Darcy and we live on Gracechurch St.. We had three children and our neighbors are the Gardiners (which make a lot of sense). Sadley we travel in a wagon and I die of starvation so somehow we do not spend money on food and travel. Our marriage must have ruined him.

    1. Well. Someone certainly mismanaged his money. Or did Wickham somehow run off with it all? ;)

  5. Oh, this brightened my day. Thank you! I haven't played MASH in forever! This one gave me some good news and some really bad news. On the bright side, I'm married to Henry Tilney (yay!) and living at Pemberly (yay!) and we drive a Landau (moneymoneymoney....money!).
    However, Lady Catherine de Burgh is our neighbor (yikes), I pop out 12 kids (double yikes....although at least things are good between myself and Henry?), and (unsurprisingly) I die in childbirth. Because 11 wasn't enough.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
