Love Letters

Love Letter was the belle of the ball at Essen, and as such has achieved the distinction of being well worth some good-natured mockery.

For starters, blogger Martin G said, “There are so many ways this game shouldn’t work. It only has 16 cards, eight of them unique. It has player elimination, often before you’ve even played a card. It offers few choices, let alone meaningful ones. But I’ve already played it 25 times, and I don’t think I’m ever going to get tired of teaching it to a new group (in 30 seconds) and seeing them erupt into hilarity within a minute flat. Pure joy.”

And Opinionated Gamers also saw fit to take us to task:

Life is good.
