Love Letter Board Game Came To Mobile! Bring Your Love Letter To The Princess Throw Real Word To Virtual
In the wake of the queen’s arrest, all the eligible young men of Tempest (and many not so young) seek to woo Princess Annette. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and everyone must rely on those within the palace to bring their romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first?
Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck, for 2–4 players. Get your love letter into Princess Annette’s hands while keeping other players’ letters away. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long and your letter may be tossed in the fire!
It seems that playing a game about sending love letters on a smartphone is a bit strange. Considering that it is this mobile technology that has essentially destroyed the art of writing something by hand, but this will not prevent us from playing Love Letter when it comes out on a mobile device.
The develops of a virtual version of this elegant and romantic desktop game is Talisman Studio Nomad Games. The game is already available for our Android and iOS devices since October 24, 2018!
Screenshot of the app show an achievements system and single-player mode against AI. It confirms that this is the original Love Letter game, themed around the epistolary wooing of Princess Annette by the players’ hopeful suitors – tough luck, Batman fans.
It’s also an original game rules too rather than the expanded deck of additional cards (including the assassin and sycophant) introduced by the Premium edition that brought the player count up to eight.
Here are some rules from the original card game.
Sixteen cards, a few red cubes, and 2-4 players; a game doesn’t get much simpler than this. I know of no other game able to pack so much interesting interaction in so few components. In Love Letter, players are trying to get their love letter delivered to the princess who has locked herself away in sadness after the death of the queen. The cards in the deck represent the various members of the court. Players start with a card, draw one more, then play one of the two in hand. At the end of the game, the member of the court remaining in one’s hand represents who carries your letter to the princess. The player with the highest value card remaining in their hand wins the round, first to win a set number of rounds (depending on the number of players) wins the game. What looks at first glance to be a simple game of luck quickly turns into a challenging game of deduction due to the special actions granted by playing each card. Quick, fun, portable, cheap even! This is the quintessential carry-with-you game that you can play while waiting at a table, probably even waiting in line! It’s one downfall lies in its limited play of 2-4 people, 5 or more players need not apply.
If you're a fan of the original board game Love Letter, then you should definitely play the digital version. Don't hesitate to write me your opinion about this new product! 😉
