Flowers, sure. Chocolates, yes. But how about a quick game of Love Letter? The short game with only 16 cards (!) has gotten amazing reviews for its simple yet strategic gameplay.
In the wake of the queen's arrest, all the eligible young men of Tempest (and many not so young) seek to woo Princess Aneette. 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 reached 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! Japanese game designer Seiji Kanai features only 16 cards but hours of fun!
