Love Letter - (Clamshell)
All of the eligible young men (and many of the not-so-young) seek to woo the princess of Tempest. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and you must rely on others to bring your romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first?
Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2–4 players. Your goal is to get your love letter into Princess Annette's hands whiledeflecting the letters from competing suitors.
From a deck with only sixteen cards, each player starts with only one card in hand; one card is removed from play. On a turn, you draw one card, andplay one card, trying to expose others and knock them from the game.
Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long, however, and your letter may be tossed in the fire!
What is Tempest?
The City-State of Tempest is the home to an unprecedented new idea in board gaming: a persistent world with recurring characters embroiled in an epic tale. The goal is to create a series of interconnected games to give you, the discriminating gaming enthusiast, an all-new gaming experience. Each game in the Tempest series shares a story, characters, and location with every other game.
When you play a Tempest game, you’re not playing a game about resources and commodities, you’re playing a game about people. And the people you meet are the same from one game to the next—you may be discovering a different aspect of their personalities, but at their heart they are the same people, be they corrupt politicians or heretical philosophers.
In addition, each Tempest game will tell a small part of an overarcing story. The people in Tempest will grow and change over the course of the story. New people will enter the scene, others might get killed. You never know what the next game might bring.
The City-State of Tempest has been over three years in the making, and features elegant illustration by renowned industry artists Andrew Hepworth and Jeffrey Himmelman. With a heavy art budget and meticulous attention to game design, Tempest games seek to cut no corners.
Welcome to Tempest, and we hope you enjoy your stay!
