AEG have announced a new Love Letter edition, Lovecraft Letter. The title alone is just share genius. I’m sad enough that I’d buy it just based on that alone.
I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to do a Lovecraft themed version.
Looking at the rule book it looks like it will be getting the same treatment as the Love Letter Premium/Deluxe edition. So big box, and sleeved. I like that bit.
It plays 2-6, 25 playing cards, 9 of which have insanity effects. Naturally there are tokens for sanity, which are described as dual side poker chips. So I’m expecting the quality of the components to be out of the park. I wouldn’t be surprised if they used the tarot sized cards for this. Plus the rules look more than just the usual minor tweak of previous versions.
So I’m pretty excited about this edition.
You can see some cards, download the rule book here on the AEG site.
