Ken Niimura’s Love Letter


As I just mentioned in my post about card games, the only games I kept and brought back from Tokyo where my two editions of the excellent Love Letter game (which I’m very happy to say that my wife quite enjoys as well). I have the basic Tempest edition from AEG, but also the beautifully illustrated Japanese edition that my friend Ken Niimura produced through Arclight Games (publisher of Love Letter in Japan) — you can see all the cards here, and buy it here. I was so excited when he told me that he was going to do art for an edition of Love Letter — he would often come to my weekly board games nights — and the finished product really is a delight.
