Seiji Kanai’s quick-playing card game being reprinted
Pandemic, Carcassonne and Terra Mystica outlet Z-Man Games has acquired the rights to Love Letter.
Seiji Kanai’s ultra-fast card game was originally released back in 2012 by AEG, and has since been spun off into countless variations, including Batman, Star Wars and the Cthulhu-themed Lovecraft Letter, which evolved the gameplay further with a fun insanity mechanic – even if its box was a little big.
Z-Man has confirmed that it will reprint current versions of Love Letter, including the princess-courting original and its premium edition, a fancier set that added bigger cards, wooden heart tokens, new cards and support for up to eight players.
There might also be the suggestion of future instalments in the series, with Z-Man studio head Steve Kimball saying as part of the announcement: “I'm excited to work closely with Seiji Kanai to help Love Letter reach new audiences and realise its full potential.”
Pandemic Legacy: Love Letter, anyone?
