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.
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.
The story of the game is you're trying to get your love letter to the princess. A house rule we have is you have to say a line of the love letter if you won the game. Often people quote rap songs, or say things so absurd that we want to play again just to see what other crazy lines we'll say.
The rules are simple: Draw a card, then discard one of the two cards in hand, using the effects on the discard immediately. The player(s) remaining at the end of the round show their remaining card, the card with the highest point value is the winner and that player receives an affection token. The winner of the game would be the first to 4, 5, or 7 tokens (depending on number of players). Players can be knocked out of the round by various card effects, so if everyone else is knocked out, the remaining player wins the round, no matter the score on the card they possess.
An example: in a two player game, player one has the Countess. He or she draws the Prince, forcing the discard of the Countess. Player two possesses the King, then takes a turn drawing the guard and adds to the hand, discarding the Guard and using the effect. Player two, having the King, guesses that player one has the Prince. Player one discards the Prince and the round is over with an affection token going to player two.
Note that one can see two easy ways of cheating in this round: player one discarding the Prince instead of the Countess, or player one denying they have the card that player two guessed.Read more ›
1. It's super portable! Seriously, the whole game takes up the space of a deck of cards but is contained in a nice little bag so you don't have to worry about losing any of the little tokens or having the cards get bent.
2. It's a really simple concept but still involves strategy. We are big strategy game people, but some of our friends don't really get into them. They like simple games that they can understand quickly. This satisfies both needs as it's super quick to get but can become a little more complex when played with strategy. So far we haven't had a single friend dislike playing!
3. It's extremely fun! This is maybe obvious, but we love this game. It's our go-to when we don't have a ton of time but want to play something fun and engaging.
All in all, we love Love Letters :) Great concept, fun story and characters, and super easy for anyone to pick up and play.
