Vlog Ep. 144: Competitive Romance with Love Letter

Tonight's #BaduyPride had us revisiting one of the older games in our collection that remains among our favorites - Love Letter. We first mentioned this game in our episode about gateway games to introduce new people to the tabletop gaming hobby. This 2-4 player card game designed by Seiji Kanai has been reskinned into so many different versions by now, all based on the same amazing game engine.

The classic Love Letter is still a pretty solid experience and still has as much depth whether you're playing with first-time players or bluffing game veterans. And how it manages all this with so few characters and a fundamentally simple central game mechanic - it all comes together to create something far more than the sum of its part. I know I wax poetic over this game, but it's totally worth it. 

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
