Been following an old university chum's blog about his game playing with his young daughter and as I like to play board/card games with my son too I have been investing in some new ones lately.
Have to say our mainstay game before this episode was Uno, then I bought Set for Easter and most recently Timeline (Discoveries) and lastly Love Letter.
Love Letter is well presented in a little red drawstring bag. The cards are well illustrated and the little booklet of instructions and backstory is great. The only criticism is the plastic bag the tokens of affection come in!
Had to rectify the situation so I altered a matchbox this morning suitable to hold these tokens. Yep much happier with the situation now.
As for the game, it only has 16 playing cards and they have various effects during the game making it intriguing, fun and curious all at the same time. It takes a little while to familiarise yourself with the cards and their effects but even my 14yr son likes the game. Had to start a game at breakfast which we'll finish just as soon as he gets in from school.
