Spiel 2013 Preview: Lost Legacy

Posted by James (admin) on August 27th, 2013

Lost Legacy gameR was an interesting game as it consisted of just 16 cards (and still came with 26 rules variations).  It was mainly a game of double-guessing what card your opponent would play.  It was simple but impressive, and the designer created a kind-of new version of it that became Love Letter (another very good game).

Lost Legacy is by the same designer who created R and Love Letter.  It too features few cards (16 for the main game plus 16 for an alternate version).  During the game, players draw a card to add to the one they hold and then play one of their cards.  Each card has a special effect that can be used.  When all the cards have been drawn, players must guess which card is the Lost Legacy card.  Guess correctly and you win.  For just a few euros, this is an easy purchase decision.

AEG will be publishing Lost Legacy but you can read the rules on Japanese publisher One Draw’s web site: bga.me/legacy
