Letters to Santa
This is a Christmas-themed version of Love Letter. Like the original, it is a simple, devious, clever game in just 16 cards. In this version, players are trying to get their all-important letter to Santa – presumably they've been nice and not naughty.
Playing the game is so simple: draw a card so you have two; play one and do what it says. Get it right and you knock out one of the other players. Get it wrong and you're a sitting duck for the next player. The highest card when the deck runs out – or the last man standing – wins the round. Win enough rounds to win the game.
It's the interaction between the cards, the bluff and the counter-bluff that make the game. As cards are played each round, players work out who's holding what and the game gets tenser. It's an absolute cracker!
As with Love Letter, the game comes in a velvet, drawstring bag, packed in a plastic shell.
For 2-4 players, aged 10+, playing time 20 minutes: £7.00 (£5.83 outside the EU)
