R 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
