Love Letter arrived in the mail one lazy afternoon, and my wife and I decided to play it immediately. We immediately played three consecutive games, and plan on playing many more.

The 16 cards are well balanced in terms of their effects. Holding the highest card is not always the best plan, and often you will win a round thanks to one of the lower valued cards.

It doesn't take very long to play the game, with our games averaging 20-25 minutes with two players once we got the hang of the rules.

My biggest complaint is that the cards are a little flimsy, causing me to put them in protective sleeves (not included) right away. If you were to play without sleeves, I fear an accidental fold could easily "mark" one or more of the cards.

Bought this game on a lark, as it was a suggested item when I purchased another game, and for ten bucks I figured why not.

Basics - this version of the game re-implements a Japanese game of the same name with virtually identical mechanics. There are one or two slight changes to the rules between the two versions, but it mostly plays the same. The art is completely different and, in my opinion, I prefer it to the original. The art is purely cosmetic, though, and doesn't impact the game at all.

Rules / Mechanics - very easy to learn. Took my lunch game group all of 5 minutes to pick it up and we were off to the races. There's nothing tricky or counter-intuitive, everything is pretty straightforward. The strategy is pretty easily picked up as well. It's not the deepest of games, but for a quick game during lunch or to clear your head between brain burners it works very well.

Detractors - the one thing I knocked the game for is the cardstock. Overall it's okay, but these cards are going to be shuffled and shuffled and shuffled and shuffled to death and back (obviously depending on how often it's played). I *highly* recommend getting sleeves for the cards. There are only around 20 cards, so a single pack of which ever brand sleeves you purchase will cover you. Factor in the cost of sleeves before buying this game, just a friendly reminder.

We are a board game family (2 kids, 6 and 8 years old) with over 60 games in our library... This is a great "filler" game. You can play it for ten minutes if that is all you have or an hour if you're in the mood. It is easy to learn, simple to play, but has some interesting mechanics that keep it interesting. We found it a bit challenging for our 6 year old pick up on some of the deductive reasoning that helps you win, but she still enjoys playing, and can easily understand the mechanics. Overall it was a good quality game and we enjoy playing it.

Background / Introduction
Let me start out this review by asking you all a question. Have you ever received or written a love letter (or maybe e-mail/text/IM etc.)? There is a certain excitement that comes from receiving or writing words that express your love to another. Now, even though the excitement and perhaps anxiety isn't the same, the game Love Letter really creates a fun anxiety and excitement and it does it all with just 16 cards. The theme I think fits really well into the game play and one other interesting thing to note along with the theme, is the fact that this game is actually game 4 in an AEG series called the Tempest series. All of these games use the same characters and build off of previous games in story and development of that realm or world. A really cool idea to link games together and truly make a "series" out of it. While I have not played any of the other games in the series, I look forward to the opportunity!

Love Letter fever has spread fast and furious around the world like a disease outbreak chain in Pandemic folks. If I was tasked with squandering and curing the world of this fever, I would fear the task too great. Love Letter has become very popular for good reason. Now, I'm not saying that means that it is a game for everyone, but there is just too much good things happening with the game not to ignore it. Some of you out there who are used to judging a book by its cover, may dismiss this game just by the name alone. I hope you don't. Trust me, something that Love Letter is definitely not, is one of those teen dating games. Love Letter is a simple card game consisting of only 16 cards and a few counter pieces.

I am giving Love Letter 3 stars as a two player game (which on Amazon means "It's ok.") since that's mostly how we play. Overall, it has lots of things going for it. It is inexpensive, easy to learn, quick to play, and quite clever given it only has 16 cards. But, we haven't found it to be very fun with just two players (even with the included two player rules). I know lots of people love this game and I mean no disrespect to anyone by saying this. I liked the idea enough to give it a try, and am still happy to have for when we have guests (I'd bump it up to 4 stars with more players). We just didn't find it very interesting when it was just the two of us.

Note that there are two other versions of this game. Love Letter - Kanai Factory Edition uses the original Japanese artwork and includes 2 promo cards (but these cards replace cards in the base game rather than give you extra cards -- i.e., you always play with 16 cards). Love Letter: Legend of The Five Rings basically replaces the artwork with art from the Five Rings RPG series.

What one you get really depends on what artwork you like best (and if you want the promo replacement cards). THEY ARE ALL THE SAME GAME, but I personally liked the artwork for this one, so this is the one we bought.
