The library has a variety of games to play and one of my favorites is Love Letter. This game was designed by Seiji Kanai and has pretty simple rules to follow. There are eight kinds of Love letter but the one we have is the Tempest edition.
In this game you are trying to woo the heart of Princess Annette, but after her mother’s death she has locked herself in the palace and your only way of giving her your love letter is through others in the palace. To play, there is a set of 16 cards, each representing a different person in the castle. Only one card is in your hand when it is not your turn, and that is who has your love letter. In order to win a token of the princess’s affection, you need to have the person closest to her with your love letter. Simple, right? Except each card does something different when discarded.
