Love letter was a surprise hit in my group. Everybody enjoys the fast pace and player interaction. It's just a shame that it only allows up to 4 players, because it seems like it would be better for say six players. I would have no problem buying a second copy of the game to shuffle the two decks of cards together, but I'm wondering if it would work in theory.

Has anybody got any suggestions as to how to try and increase the player limit?

Look in the Variant subforum on BGG, there are quite a few ideas.

Having more than four players seems like it would be a lot more chaotic, cause they probably play tested the game and chose that number for that reason, I played a game called 7 wonders with a group of friends, and we had 7 people and the game is a 2 to 7 player game, and I will never have 7 people play it again, was supposed to be half an hour at most, it took us 1 to 2 hours, so, adding more players to Love letter might be more chaotic than you want, but give it a try, it doesn't hurt.

Either those people were all new or you weren't playing it correctly. 7 Wonders is often touted as a game that doesn't change in length based on the player count. –  Matt R Oct 24 at 19:40
    
7 Wonders should only require you to look at the player to your left, and the player to your right. And all turns are simultaneous. Someone two spots away is utterly irrelevant to a novice game. (If you're playing card-denial against some opponents, then you might pay attention to them, but for the most part you should only care about your neighbors.) –  Paul Marshall Oct 24 at 22:35

This is not answering the question of how to do it. Board Games SE is a Q&A site, not a forum - please see our tour to understand how this site works. Answers need to answer the question, and aren't for discussion. –  doppelgreener Oct 26 at 0:23
