It is the 1920s, and the world is in a state of confusion following WWI. During this time, you and your friends find yourselves amid mysterious events. You are surrounded by strange figures, letters with unreadable texts, and sudden appearances of beings 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 you…
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, you are insane (at least for the current round). On future turns, you can play insanity cards for their regular powers or their special powers, 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. If you draw one or more insanity cards, 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. Cthulhu 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.
