|Love Letter: A good thing in|
a small package
Love Letter's first English edition had sold out fairly quickly, but the second printing had been shipped to the United States just a couple of months ago, so I was thankful that the game was available. My copy arrived today, and I was immediately struck by the unusual packaging. I was never able to find it at Game Parlor, my FLGS, even though they carry the other three games in the AEG Tempest series. Now I realize that they might have had it all along and I could simply have overlooked it. Love Letter comes in a clamshell pack that contains a relatively small scarlet velvet bag with its name embroidered in gold script. The bag contains a pack of 16 cards plus four reference cards, a small rulebook, and a set of red wooden cubes that serve as "tokens of affection" for keeping score.
I look forward to trying this game out with Kathy this weekend.
