"A handbag game."
5 stars"

Theme – sneaking love letters to the princess. A sneaky game of trying to expose others while you keep your own changing identities hidden.

This game is tiny enough to keep in your handbag or glovebox just for those occasions you find yourself at a loose end. The cute drawstring bag helps keep the contents together and safe but I would recommend some additional protection as marked cards will affect playability.

As a turn is a choice between 2 cards and each card describes its function, it is easy to learn and fast-paced. Best as a 3–4 player game. A great, gentle introduction to knock 'em out style games.

"Quick and snazzy"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

With rounds lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes, Love Letter is easy to learn, quick to play and very satisfying.

Tempest is AEG's new line of designer board games set in a unique shared world, beautifully realized by artists Andrew Hepworth and Jeffrey Himmelman. Each game shares the setting and characters with other games, yet occupies its own unique position in the over-arcing story. Come explore the City-State of Tempest!

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 2–4 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!
