Love Letter is a simple game with less than 20 cards. However, within that small package comes deep gameplay that is rewarding. Gamers will be asking to play this one again and it’s a perfect filler at the beginning or end of a game night. This game encourages gamers to observe the actions of their opponents, process the information at the table, and make decisions in order to win the heart of the princess!

Game Overview

Playing cards one at a time, players in Love Letter use the abilities of these key people in the Princess' life to outwit their opponents and successfully deliver their letter and gain her favor. Players must utilize each character's special skill to avoid being caught and successfully deliver their letter to the Princess. Once a set number of favor tokens are acquired, that player wins and becomes the Princess' confidant.
