CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
In the wake of the queen’s arrest, all the eligible young men of Tempest (and many not so young) seek to woo Princess Annette. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and everyone must rely on those within the palace to bring their romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first? Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck, for 2–4 players. Get your love letter into Princess Annette’s hands while keeping other players’ letters away. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long and your letter may be tossed in the fire!
From the Manufacturer
All of the eligible young men (and many of the not-so-young) seek to woo the princess of Tempest. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and you must rely on others to bring your romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first? Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2 to 4 players. Your goal is to get your love letter into Princess Annette's hands while deflecting the letters from competing suitors. From a deck with only sixteen cards, each player starts with only one card in hand; one card is removed from play. On a turn, you draw one card, and play one card, trying to expose others and knock them from the game. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long, however, and your letter may be tossed in the fire.

I was surprised at how few cards there were, and at first, I didn't think it would be very entertaining, but I was really impressed with it once we started playing. While it's not extremely challenging, it does involve some skill, and over time you get to know the cards and their effects, and you can pretty much map out a quick strategy in your head.
The game time itself is pretty short with 2 people. We haven't played with anyone else yet, but I have a feeling that it'll be a lot more fun and more of a challenge when we do.
The graphics on the cards are beautiful, and I love that the red cubes are referred to as "tokens of affection" - really sweet!
This would make for the perfect Valentines Day gift for your significant other. It's cute, and it goes with the theme, but it's something you can actually enjoy together. My fiance and I have laughed a lot playing this game, and we've played it many times already. Certainly a better gift idea than a novelty gift that'll end up just sitting collecting dust somewhere!
The basic premise is that you always have one card in your hand. You draw a second and choose one to discard. The discarded card has an effect, which could affect you or another player. You want to kick other players out of the round. The player with the highest card at the end wins that round.
Each card has a different effect, which is fun. Sometimes rounds end fairly predictably, other times there is a big surprise and somebody wins with a low number. It's a lot of fun and great "filler" game that you can play anywhere.
However, none of us was thrilled with the "wooing the princess" love theme...I have two boys, 4 and 16, neither interested in looo-ooove and romance. I found it a bit sexist, too, as a mom. The princess sits around waiting for guys to woo her. Bleh.
So, we turned it into a "Rescue the Princess" game. Gameplay is the same, but the princess is in danger and needs to escape to safety. Someone wants to kill her. You are sneaking instructions on the escape plan to her. If you succeed, she smuggles a box of her possessions out of the castle for you to keep. Once you have all of her possessions, you win and you get to rescue the princess and help her escape. When my 4 y/o loses, it helps him accept the loss when I tell him I am in charge of the rescue because I won, but he can help rescue the princess with me.
It's a quick game we can play with two or three of us easily. I'd give our version of the game 5 stars, but the love theme loses the original version one star.
Very fun and quick game. Though there's elimination of players, each round is only a few minutes so you never feel bored waiting your turn to come back in.
This game is amazingly fun for such a simple game. My kids and I play it incessantly and I doubt it'll ever stop. I play the game with buddies over game days, family when visiting, and in our house. It is such a versatile game. I find that when the kids and I are looking for a quick 5-10 minute filler before going to school we pick up Love Letter and play a round or two. Which in my opinion is so much healthier than watching television in those times.
The game plays quickly enough to grab a game here & there but is intricate enough to provide many hours of fun.
It's easy to explain to new players and if they don't get it after the explanation, one round through is sufficient to grab the majority of the game.
I liked the game so much that I created a copy for myself to play with a buddy at work...it was actually a running gag. We had created a paper chess board & paper chess pieces and would play chess at work. Then we built another board and would email moves to each other over the day. However, we ended up enjoying the game so much that I bought another copy to keep at work.
The fact that the game is so small made it another easy candidate for backpacking trips. During winter hikes I'm able to keep it in my chest pocket, when not hiking with a jacket I end up keeping it in my pack. Even with the cards being paper cards, i've yet to bend any of them by keeping them either in my pack lid or else in other areas that prevent bending.
Overall, I love the game, it's a lot of fun and continues to be a hit in our house.
