How 16 cards can make such a fun game is almost amazing, but this gets played with our children more than almost any other game we have, due to playing quickly, but also having a nice level of deduction and bluffing.

Plays 2-4 players, but much better with 3 or 4 than 2. And our 8 year old loves it and regularly beats us!

Fun, thought provoking, curious and extremely addictive! Even my 14yr old son likes this game. Takes a while to get the hang of the different cards and their effects but each round can be quite quick and the winner is the first to obtain a set number of "tokens of affection". Comes in a lovely red drawstring bag and the cards are beautifully illustrated. Only down side is the plastic bag the tokens come in. Ideal time to decorate a matchbox to hold them. Bling it up is what I say.

This is a really great game as others point out. One of the few games that plays well with any number of players. I own it already and am purchasing it for two friends this season via Amazon: one USA, one UK. I am giving the US Amazon version 5 stars, but the UK version 4 stars. Why? The silly price difference. As of this writing, it's $6.26 (£3.99) in the USA, and £7.47 ($11.73) in the UK. Nearly twice the price and I can't think of anything to account for that, even a VAT.

It's not often that a simple card game gets replayed in my gaming group so often, but Love Letter is certainly one that has joined that select class of filler games.

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.

Who knew 16 cards and 13 little red cubes could become such a great game? It's fast and frantic, and hilarities are sure to ensue. Each round requires a player to pick up a new card and then discard a card, all the while trying to keep your identity hidden, go for big numbers, and find out (and eliminate) the other players. Turns plays out differently from game to game, but each time, just as you're starting to get an idea of who has what and how to beat them, the round ends! It's great! Don't get me wrong, you're paying for the idea here, as the contents of the game are very minimal, but it's hard to find a better card game for the money.

I love this game. Its short its simple and engaging.
Everyone I've played this with has learnt within minutes and been enjoying themselves for the entirety of the game.
The only hurdle to get new players over is the name and theme of the game.
I got this out as a suggestion to play with a small group of male friends and it took a lot of fast talking to get them to consider it.
So my advice is ignore the Theme and Name, if you want a short and sweet play out of the bag Bluff game, this is the game for you!

A very slick little card game that is easy to pick up, plays fast and is so small you can take it nearly anywhere and play with almost anyone. Based on a Japanese card game, rethemed to reflect the characters and aristocratic ranks of renaissance Europe, the game amounts to no more than pick a card play a card (with no more than 16 cards in total in the whole game). But within that simplicity is a whole world of deduction, betrayal, game play, competition and "take that!" - all within a game for which a round takes only 2-3mins and a game no more than 20mins.

If you're looking for a quick, cheap, fun, easy to learn and play card game, capable of engrossing everyone from 8 years upwards, this has got to be at the top of the list of recommendations, indeed there isn't a lot of competition (perhaps the very different but equally fun Braggart http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spiral-Galaxy-Games-Braggart/dp/B004D4J8ZW ). Definitely a must-buy for any game collection.

This game comes pretty much everywhere with me and my family. My six year old loves it! I was originally taught how to play the game by two girls around 6 or 7. It's simple enough for children but it's got enough meta for grown ups too. A nice little game to pull out at the pub and play. Comes in a very nice little drawstring bag too.

Love letter the rapid deduction game you will play again and again

In love letter you are trying to win the heart of the princess by getting your letters to her by way of deducing your opponents cards the game is played over a number of rounds until the princesses heart is won when a player successfully get the required number of letters to her.

Features:

super portable
easy and quick to play
suitable for younger gamers

My opinion:

This makes a a great game for a stack of situations, kicking of a game night, a filler title, waiting for a meeting to start or just a quick game to play if you have an unexpected visitor and want to play a short easy to learn game.

It is this list of qualities that mean I tend to keep a copy in my work back so that it is always with me should I have the opportunity to play a quick game and recruit a new gamer.
