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.

In Love Letters the players compete for the heart of the Princess by trying to pass her a love letter, while keeping other players’ letters away. The setup is easy, players shuffle the 16 cards and form a drawing deck. The first card is removed from the game (with 2 players 3 extra cards are remove), and each player get one card from the drawing deck.
On her turn, a player takes the top card from the deck and play one of the two cards in her hand by playing it face up on the discard pile. Then the card effect is applied and either a player is knocked out of the round, or the turn passes to the player on your left. At the end of the round if only one player is left he or she gets a token of affection, if more than one player is left, the player with the highest value card gets the token. A player wins the game after winning a number of tokens based on the number of players.
The Guard (1) – guess a non-Guard card and choose a player. If that player has that card, he or she is out of the round. There are 5 Guard cards.
Priest (2) - Look at another player's hand. There are 2 Priest cards.
Barron (3) - compare hands with another player. The player with the lower value card is out of the round. There are 2 Barron cards.
Handmaid (4) - ignore all effects from other player cars until your next turn. There are 2 Handmaid cards.
Prince (5) - choose any player including yourself to discard his or her hand and draw a new card. There are 2 Prince cards.
King (6) – Trade hands with another player.
Countess (7) – if you have this card and the kind or prince in your hand. You must discard this card.
Princess (8) – if you discard this card you are out of the round.
Thus, a player has to find a good balance between powerful cards with high gain, but can make him or her a target, but may give him or her a gain, and weaker cards that may cost him or her the token of affection.
Overall, love letter is a great game, with a high replay value. It is not expensive (usually goes for around $8 on amazon, with a retail price of $12), and is lightweight, which means you can take it on the road.

Very easy to learn. My family played the first game open handed. We do that for every new game. There are also cards that help you remember what card does what.
The story behind the game is not needed, but it is fun to read if you have a brother who likes to read with odd voices and random sound effects. It was so funny.
The only thing is Boobs McGee. Well, that’s just the name we picked out for the countess. I’ll let you guess why.
None of the cards are too risqué but the newer version has more modest attire. We just weren’t expecting Boobs McGee, but the game wouldn’t be as fun without her, mostly because of the name.
Highly recommend this game for anyone who is looking for a short and simple game that has has unlimited scenarios.
Hint: Always ask about the baron. It might be my family or the cards might be cursed. But it never fails that the same player will keep getting delt that stupid baron. (Which makes the game even more funny.)
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.
The game is incredibly simple to learn and play, there are only 16 cards and each say exactly what you do with them. Players try and eliminate each other throughout a round, and either the last person still in the round or the person with the highest card at the end of the round wins. The overall winner is the player to win a predetermined amount of rounds first (based on the number of players). There is a good amount of luck to the game, but if you pay careful attention to the cards played there is actually some pretty surprisingly in depth strategy, too!
The game moves very quickly - each round takes less than 5 minutes - and that's only when you take a long time to think about your moves. If you get a group of players that know the game and can stay focused, you can probably play each round in 1-2 minutes.
One great thing about the game is that it is literally pocket-sized and can be easily carried with you wherever you go. It's a great one to take to coffee shops, bars, or travelling.
If you are like me, and are hesitant about the game because of the "theme", do yourself a favor and just buy it, it's a ton of fun!

It’s a simple game which is easy to explain, quick to grasp, and fun to play. Full games can take between 20-30 minutes if you have 4 players, and about half that if you’re playing with just 2 players. It’s fun with less than 4 players, but still works (and is enjoyable) with 2 players.
The premise of the game is to eliminate your friends or have the highest value card at the end of the round. If you win a round, you gain a token of affection. Get enough tokens and you win the game.
It’s a great warmup game if you’re playing longer, more complicated board games later in the night. It’s also great just by itself if you don’t want to dive into something long-winded. It’s portable to boot – just a small bag which has everything you need to play.
100% recommend. It’s simple but was great fun. No doubt it’ll form a permanent addition to our warmup game collection.
It's a really easy game to learn but great fun to play (those are the best kind right?).
We are keeping this version for travelling and will use the Premium version for in the house. I can't recommend this game highly enough. We play with a 12yr old and my wife and myself. It's suitable for two players but three plus is better I think. Each round is quite quick too so an easy game to just 'pick up and play'.
It's much more engaging to play something like this then just watch the TV and it's a lot of fun too. If you're in two minds just buy it. You won't regret it. Don't be put off by the name or the silk purse it comes in. It really is a cracking game!
It's ideal size for going on holiday. The little red bag is handy size.
My only gripe is that the cards are quite thin and I can't imagine them lasting more than a year or so if you play the game regularly. They feel quite flimsy in your hand. Card quality aside though I'd recommend this game as an affordable and fun addition to any families game collection. It's very easy to learn and surprisingly fun!
The objective of the game is simple, you want to either eliminate your opponents by playing action cards or retain the card with the highest number at the end of the game.
Mechanically it is a simple 16 card game involving playing the best cards you can on your turn and deducing what each opponent has in his hand by observing the cards that have been played. Most games will take 3-5 minutes with an additional minute if you have to explain the rules and what the cards do.
Because of its small size it fits perfectly as a game that you can either carry it around with you and pop it out for a quick game with your friends or as a filler game in between other larger and longer games. I would also recommend it as a good starter game if you're looking to introduce casual/non gamers due to its fun value and simplicity.
It's very easy to understand the rules from the rulebook provided (although there are plenty of youtube videos which will run through them very quickly too!). On explaining the rules to others, everyone usually has a good handle on them by the end of a round (which takes only a couple of minutes); it's usually easier to get the idea across over a practice round than just talking through them.
