Love Letter - Card Game 12+
Strategy Card Game
TWIN SAILS INTERACTIVE
DRAW, PLAY AND BLUFF, FOR ONLY ONE SUITOR WILL BE ABLE TO WIN THE HEART OF THE PRINCESS
You and other suitors are prepared to do anything to get your love letter to the princess. She's shut herself inside her palace, so you're forced to use go-betweens to deliver the message. Guards, princes, the king, the countess... Who will turn out to be the best ally to help win your beloved's heart?
You only ever have two cards in your hand. Draw and play your cards to get closer to the princess. Everyone staying in the castle could aid you in their own way: guards and princes can help discredit letters from other suitors, priests will give you precious information about your rivals while the handmaiden will protect your letter at any cost!
As the game progresses, you'll have to think strategically, bluff and try to read your opponents' game. When the deck is used up, the card in your hand will be the character holding your letter for the princess. The strongest card, i.e. the character who's closest to the princess, wins!
Send the other suitors packing, gain the advantage and win the game. Let's get started!

Ratings and Reviews
Good implementation, frustrating AI
This app is very well written. Clean, easy to use.
However the AI is extremely frustrating. It will target the human player more often, even at the expense of losing the entire game. I’ve watched the AI choose to target me with 0 wins when other players are 1 from victory. I’ve watched the AI pick guard on me 3x in a row before I’ve played, resulting in matches where I played in 1/3rd of the games at all. I’ve watched the AI use a guard on me when they literally traded hands with another player just before.
I did have a lot of fun with the game before I started to notice and definitely got my money’s worth over time. So it’s more like the game is 4-5 stars to start then declined to 2 for me.
Please Add DLC
With the big box dlc released, I was hoping they’d update this game for 5+ players to allow for the new cards. These cards include:
Card (number in card): description:
Assassin (0): when someone plays a guard card on you the person playing the guard is out.
Joker (0): Pick someone you think will win the round. If they win the run, you also get an affection token (heart).
Guards (1) (I think there’s three more added)
Cardinal (2): pick two players to trade hands and look at one of them
Baroness (3): Choose one or two players, look at their hand(s).
Sycophant (4): Pick a player. If the next card played has an affect, that player must be chosen for that effect.
Count (5): if this card is in your discard pile, add one to the card you are holding at the end of the round (if you are still in and no more cards in the draw pile)
Constable (6): If this card is in your discard pile, and you get eliminated from the round you get an affection token.
Dowager Queen (7): Pick a player. Look at each other cards, the higher number is out.
Bishop (9): Pick a player. Guess any non-guard card they have, if you guess it right, you get an affection token. The player you guessed is not out but may or may not discard their card. At the end of the round, the princess beats the bishop (unsure how bishop works on Baron and Dowager Queen with the Princess).
These cards add an extra layer and a ton of fun for 5+ players! Highly recommend adding these!
So-so implementation, game seems abandoned
I recently played this game in real life and was eager to keep playing, and excited to find an iOS version. After a bit of playing, here’s my feedback:
* There are some nice touches, such as seeing the specific effect of each card that’s been played.
* The text is almost impossibly small, on an iPhone 12.
* Quit the app and your game in progress disappears. This was how iOS games worked in like 2009? Unacceptable in 2022.
* The second edition adds some cards and is a lot of fun. Too bad it’s nowhere to be found here.
