Love Letter is a good quick filler game.

I like CoB, but it’s not my favorite Feld game. I’ll play it once in a while. It’s another good game to introduce new players to the hobby.

While I have never played Castles of Burgundy with four players I can definitely see how that has the potential to make for a detrimental first play experience. It does make a lovely two-player game, and I have also really enjoyed it with three players. You get a bit more depth and interaction with three, but the game doesn’t run too much longer than with two.

Love Letter with two is a very different game than with three or four. I still enjoy it, but definitely prefer having more players.

Played both. Love Letter way more fun. Of course I played Castles of Burgundy with four, and it took forever. Probably better with two players, than four whereas Love Letter would be the opposite.

A game I have been playing a lot is Cypher, by AEG (comes in a velvet package just like Lost Legacy and Love Letter).

Thanks I will have to try both (Love L and Lost L) but if I want to play with my wife and daugthers chances are that they will prefer Love Letters

@Ob1 I like the Lost Legacy’s theme more and the game play is very slimier. If the theme is holding you back try that game (plus it will play 2-6 players and have different mods of play when all three sets are released).

I was not interested by these 2 games but the more I read about them the more I’m changing my mind. They are not on my buy list but I’m willing to try them..who knows what can happen next

I am always a little disappointed when the explorable games are ones that I own and have already been reviewed by dozens of people. I like learning about new games and adding them to my want yo try list. I also like to write reviews and get the reminders that people liked what you wrote.

I understand that the more games you have the more this will happen, and that slogging through the exploration is part of the sites XP process. Just sharing my thoughts.

Two very different games again which is great.

Love Letter may seem totaly random until you play it a few times and discovers how much game there actually is in just 16 cards.

Castles of Burgundy is probably the finest creation by Stefan Feld with excellent use of dice.
