It is the 1920s, and the world is in a state of confusion following
WWI. During this time, you and your friends find yourselves amongst
mysterious events. You are surrounded by strange figures, letters with
unreadable texts, as well as sudden appearances of being unknown. By
relying on your connections, you set out to investigate these incidents.
Unknown to you are the frightful truths that lie in wait ahead of
Lovecraft Letter is a card game that combines the Love Letter system with the world of H.P. Lovecraft. In addition to the standard sixteen cards in the Love Letter game
are new versions of the cards that include special "insanity" powers.
If you have one of these cards in your discard pile, then you are insane
(at least for the current round) and on future turns can play insanity
cards for their regular power or their special power, giving you more
options during play. The risk, however, is that you must undergo a
sanity check at the start of each of your turns, drawing as many cards
from the deck as the number of insanity cards in front of you; draw one
or more insanity cards, and you're out for the round.
If you win
the game, whether by being the last person standing or the player with
the highest single card after the deck runs out, you win a token colored
to reflect whether you were sane or insane. Win enough tokens of the
right type, and you win the game. Cthluhu can also help you win the game
if you release it at the right time...
Will you put an end to the
evil schemes as an investigator, or will you help guide the world to
destruction as one of insanity's disciples? It all depends on you
