Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2 to 6 players. Your goal is to get your love letter into Princess Annette's hands while deflecting the letters from competing suitors.

Calling Suitors one and all!

Compete to deliver your missives to the kingdom's Princess in this quick card game of risk and deduction.

Can you outwit your friends and earn the trust if the noble Princess?

Changes in the New Edition

This 2019 edition of Love Letter supports up to 6 players and features new artwork by Citadels artist Andrew Bosley, screen-printed tokens, and two new characters: Chancellor and Spy (five cards in total).

When played, the Chancellor (value 6) allows you to draw two new cards, add those to your hand, then place two cards of your choice on the bottom of the deck. The Spy (value 0) wins you a favor token if you were the only player to play or discard a spy during the round.

Game Play

From a deck with only 21 cards, each player starts with only one card in hand; one card is removed from play. On a turn, you draw one card, and play one card, trying to expose others and knock them from the game. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long, however, and your letter may be tossed in the fire!
