A bit of madness is key in Lovecraft Letter


Seiji Kanai’s Love Letter, a game about getting a princess to like you, has come a long way in five years.

Fascinating, may need to buy this.


This looks awesome. I recently played Love Letter with some friends here in Raleigh for an hour or two and had a blast, but the changes this introduces sound great!


Played a few rounds of this just tonight! There’s something very satisfying about driving one of your friends insane by forcing them to drop the Mi-Go Braincase.


Yes there are some fun interactions for sure. Swapping Cthulhu for the… what was the non crazy 8… only to have the person you swapped with draw an investigator?

Good times.


The Necronomicon. Which makes Cthulhu the Crazy Eight! I like it.



Is the 2 players variant enjoyable? Or do I have to make friends?!


I’ve only tried two-player once. It’s OK, but the game really shines with 4-5.


I love this question so much. It made me smile this morning.

Regardless, @ineffablebob is correct. It’s a much better game with four players.



OMG Dingus likes a game!!!


Just a bit insane!


One of the guys in our group, who hates Lovecraft Letter, claims that the Liber Ivonis is “broken”. He hasn’t weighed in yet on Cthulhu, the Hounds of Tindalos, or the Shining Trapezohedron.



Eh, all the insane cards are broken in certain situations. That’s what makes them fun!


I can easily imagine Cthulhu cultists playing this game in their downtime.
