Obsession board game

Victorian England, 1840. You are the head of a respected but financially troubled family estate; rooms are closed off to save on upkeep and heating, outside grounds have gone to seed, and the façade is in desperate need of restoration.

It is far from the glory days of the estate, but you have new hope. A significant inheritance has made possible the restoration of the grand old manor house and rehabilitation of the family's reputation in the county of Cambridge.

Obsession captures the experience of Regency and Victorian England—the beloved world of Jane Austen & Anthony Trollope—in a way that transports family and friends to that unique time and place.

BGA Commentary

Two years after its 2018 release a cult following grew and it skyrocketed on the Trending charts once the publisher started selling it directly. Obsession is one of the best board games out there that captures the feeling of Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey, and Jane Austen novels.
