Games inspired by the Georgian domestic world.

By the way, a possible contemporary portrait of the author has just surfaced and may be seen here:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16027710

Update of May 2016: The new film Love & Friendship is in the theaters, based on Austen's Lady Susan. I was able to see it last weekend and found it quite enjoyable. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3068194/reference

To propose, your gentleman must have a standing at least as high as the lady's; if his charm is lower than hers, you must discard cards to make up the difference, and you can discard additional cards if desired to make him even more charming. If the lady accepts, players exchange cards and whoever has the higher fortune on their character draws cards to match the difference. If she declines, possible by paying cards to account for overwhelming charm, the gentleman returns to the player's hand to brush up on his manners and societal standing for a possible marriage run next turn.

Marrying Mr. Darcy is a role-playing game where players are one of the female characters from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice. Players work to improve themselves and become more desirable as potential wives for the available Suitors. The ladies do this by attending Events and improving their Characters, but advantage can be gained by the use of Cunning. All of their efforts are in hopes of securing the husband that will make them the most satisfied character at the end of the game.

Primary attributes are Beauty, Friendliness, Reputation and Wit.
Secondary attributes are Cunning and Dowry.

"Love & Intrigue". Akin to Pride & Prejudice, each player represents a family trying to marry their three daughters. The daughters have three characteristics: Reputation, beauty, and education, all of which may increase and decrease in value during the course of the game.

If you're intrigued by all the different games they play in Jane Austen's novels.

Based on this I'm convinced Ms. Jane was a gamer, and probably a good one.
