We have a group of 5 or so people that enjoy playing Love Letter to fill in a few spare moments at work over lunch or at the end of the day. The key elements are the game is interesting, fast paced, simple rules and not very long to play a round or four.

I'm wondering is there are any similar games out there? Perhaps with a sci-fi theme?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions asking for game recommendations are off-topic. For details on why, and where you might find good recommendations elsewhere, see this meta discussion." – ire_and_curses
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question. You mean this game? – user2617804 Mar 20 '14 at 1:24
@user2617804 - Yes, I've added the link. – Justin808 Mar 20 '14 at 1:29
@ire_and_curses - Glad to see you you like helping people discover the joys of games. Also you linked meta does nothing to point to any other place to find this information, it's just a few people being all superior saying they really don't want to help the casual player out. Really if all you want is game rule nit-picking questions you'll never get enough movement to get out of Beta. A nice General B&CG Q&A site would be great. This one at the moment is pointless to the masses of casual gamers out there. Also remove the recommendations tag sense all recommendations will be closed anyways. – Justin808 Mar 20 '14 at 4:52
@Justin808 - I sympathise with your frustration. This meta question explains better the rationale for why these kinds of questions are not allowed: Should we ban game recommendation questions?. In a nutshell, there are basically unlimited answers, and they are all opinions. Please understand that this is not personal - the role of a moderator is to enforce the community consensus of the site, that's all. – ire_and_curses Mar 20 '14 at 5:07
@TheChaz2.0 - Its irritating to me, a lot of potentially good SE sites become pointless and unused because of things like this. I would post to meta about it, but you have a minority there who jump down peoples throats for making suggestions they don't already agree with. And SE chat is a joke. – Justin808 Mar 22 '14 at 0:26
