The only card games I have are Coup, LL, Bohnanza, and S&R if you count that. I was thinking of getting more - any recommendations?

Also, is there a way to view the Card Games Rank? When I clicked Love Letter's page, its ranked 8 in Family Games and about 80 in overall board games, but is there any to directly go to the Family Games Rank page or the Card Games Rank page?

Family Games sorted by Rank

Games sorted by Rank

You meant that? I think that there isn't Card Games Rank.

Also, for games like Love Letter, check Coup, BraveRats, Eat me if you can. Not quite similar in gameplay, but in lightness and complexity.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

What about it do you like?

If you really like the roles and the bluffing element, check out
Mascarade (similar game length; lots of chaos; a bit of a memory element)
Citadels (longer game; tons of bluffing; character roles play a big part of the game. I find this one more strategically satisfying than both Love Letter and Mascarade, as it's more meaty of a game.)

Also, check out Lost Legacy. It's apparently an official Love Letter spin-off - different cards and a slightly different victory condition.

I like about Love Letter that its small and very portable. The only thing I need to carry is the cards and we dont even have to bring the counters around, so its very light. I want more fun card games that are very lightweight and easy like that. Coup is the only other one I found so far.

Also, how do I go to those rank pages? When I scroll over Browse, it only lets me select Games and gives me the Games Rank. How do I look at the ranks of other categories, like Strategy or Family? Please dont just link me either.

EDIT: Oh, and I was also hoping to avoid more bluffing games since I had so many already. I don't mind hidden role games too much though, as long as there isnt much bluffing and its more strategic or deduction.

The best choice are "Love Letter to Lady Luck" and "Goita" from Princess Wonder.

OK, so super-small, portable, lightweight, easy card games...
I can vouch for the following as great games:

Saboteur
The Battle for Hill 218
Hanabi (use of scrabble-tile holders for cards are highly recommended though)
Turn the Tide

Slightly larger footprint but still small
The Dwarf King (will need pencil & paper for scoring)
Biblios (has some dice)
Castle (getting a reprint soon)

BGG home page -> Hover over interested category, directly above Announcements (e.g. Abstract Games) -> Select "Games" option from drop-down menu = ranked games for that category loads.
