Excellent filler game of deduction for 2-4 players
on 29 October 2014
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.
