The countess knocked gently on the door of the Princess’s chambers. “Your Highness, I have a letter for you.” The Princess leapt off her bed and quickly opened the door to take the folded letter from her trusted friend. “Thank you for safely delivering it,” she said. Closing the door, the Princess settled in to the chair near the fireplace, letting the warm glow of the flames illuminate the note. Gently she cracked the wax seal on the outside of the parchment and read the missive. She smiled to herself; she had found a worthy confidant at last.
Love Letter is a quick card game of risk and deduction. Can you outwit your friends and earn the trust of the noble Princess? With quick and easy gameplay, Love Letter is perfect casual game for any occasion.
We were excited to welcome Love Letter into the Z-Man brand and we are even more thrilled to release this new edition of the game. Love Letter remains the fast, portable card game you know and love, but now this award-winning game has a set of gorgeous new illustrations by Citadels artist Andrew Bosley, including a couple of new characters, now enabling gameplay for up to 6 players. We’ll cover the new characters and other gameplay features in more detail in future articles so keep an eye out! This edition also features a beautiful gold screenprint of the iconic balance scale from the original Love Letter on both the bag and tokens. We can’t wait for fans of the game and new players to get their hands on this new edition.
SEEKING A WORTHY CONFIDANT
The noble princess is looking for an ideal partner and confidant to help with her royal duties when she one day assumes the throne. You must prove your worth and gain her trust by enlisting her friends and family to carry a letter of intent to her. Perhaps her father the King will be able to safely hand over your letter to her, or maybe the gentle handmaid can deliver your missive. You must carefully utilize the skills of each character to successfully send your letter.
Gameplay is simple; each turn you draw a new card, adding it to your card already in hand, and choose one of the two to play. Characters have unique skills that you must use to outwit your opponents and successfully deliver your letter to gain the princess’s favor. When someone collects enough tokens of affection, they become confidant to the princess.
