Love Letter is a brilliant game. Brilliant. You can teach it to total strangers, non-gaming strangers, in 5 minutes. It rewards skill but has enough card-draw luck to keep everyone involved. The art is perfect.


I have no interest in the variations I demo'ed at GenCon (The Garden? The Spaceship?), or any other, but Love Letter itself is just a perfect little game, IMHO.

Possibly the best filler of all time. You can carry it in your pocket, set up in under a minute and be done in a few minutes to 15 minutes depending on how the cards come out. Great for when you are waiting for people to show for your group games.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

So next question, is it worth getting the standard edition, or the Batman edition. I feel like people will take it less seriously if I pull out the Batman edition, but I will probably enjoy that theme better.

Feedback: We could all use a little more

Yep, great game for sure. I've played it almost 30 times and with a lot of different people and we all have liked it.

Keeping it honest. Thanks, q.

I'll admit that I'm not a raving fan, either. I enjoy it, but it fits into the category of games that I play because I'm traveling and can't play a "real" game.

That said, it's an inexpensive game and we really have enjoyed it (you know, when Heroscape and Dead of Winter and Ascension weren't available ). I'm glad we own it, but I think I had too high of expectations going into it.*

It is, though, our most enjoyed on-the-road game and there-isn't-much-space game.

I recommend it--and have taught it to many people who immediately say, "I have to buy this"--I just want to set reasonable expectations.

--

I'm hoping the Batman skin will make it a bit more engaging for my sons and I. I plan to pick it up.

I don't think my friends took the original version seriously when I pulled it out (too princessy, maybe?) because they haven't agreed to a game yet after looking at it.

Oh well, 44 days to a new state and new game group possibilities!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

It's more of the same. So if you like KoT then go for it.

I do like KoT. I was hoping for something that would add more variety to the game. I suppose new monsters will do.

If you have the first expansion, you're set. The second is nice and add a few new twists to the game, but it's not as necessary as the first.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Finally defeated the new minions, elite minions, and generals for Defenders of the Realm. Took down the last general (Undead) one area outside Monarch City after 2 heroes died fighting him the turns before, because you can't fight him as a group. We would have lost that turn had we not defeated him because the 2nd card in the Darkness Spreads deck was undead general moves to Monarch City.

These new figures make the game unbelievably tense and with the wrong heroes almost impossible. Really fun and satisfying win, especially after the three spectacularly feeble attempts before it where we killed a grand total of 1 general.
