Love Letter is a quick, easy to learn card game. The premise is simple; all of the cards have a point value and a rule on them. When the round is over you want to have the card with the highest point value on it. You start the game with one card, then on your turn to have to draw a card and play one of the two in your hand. The rules printed on the cards are very simple, things like look at another player’s hand. The game is so quick that even when you’re knocked out for a round it doesn’t take long before you’re playing again.
Because the game is so simple it is open to being licensed all sorts of ways. I chose the Batman version but there are Hobbit, Adventure Time, and other versions already released or on their way. Joker is the high value card in the set, so he’s the one you want to end with. The lowest value card is Batman. When you play Batman you can earn a point by correctly guessing what card is in someone’s hand. It knocks them out of the round and you get to feel like the world’s greatest detective. We had a lot of fun asking each other if we had Poison Ivy.
