I just made this after playing Love Letter a couple times at our last game night. I got it for Christmas but it didn't fly too well. I think that it had to do with the theme.

Figured everyone likes Star Wars.

If someone could check it out and proof them before I order them to print. I did catch that I was missing a star for Princess Leia.

Thanks

I do not like how you have different characters for your "3", "4", and "5", as it makes your "1" stormtrooper card almost completely useless. If you insist on having sifferent characters for the same number, I would suggest changing the stormtrooper test to read "pick a number and another player".

But this way, it makes it more thematic to Star Wars, as Stormtroopers can never hit anything!

Where is Obi-Wan? To me it makes more sense that Darth Vader should interact with Luke and Obi-Wan rather than Luke and Han.

Not sure I fully understand you because of the typos or maybe a language barrier. The Stormtrooper is a Guard card. The text is exactly the same other than where I replaced "Guard" for "Stormtrooper".

I decided to have all of them be the same because they are the weakest. Also because of the text, otherwise I would have had to alter it even more.

I understand what you are saying. I tried to pair up characters that would work well together hence [5] being Han and Chewie. It isn't exactly a 1 to 1 to the movie.

I was considering putting Obi-Wan or the Emperor in but just didn't find great artwork. Thanks for the feedback.

Missing space in "Lower Value" on the Jabba/Yoda cards?

The problem with the Stormtrooper cards is that you've changed the odds. In the original game, if you play a guard and call for a baron, there should be two barons in play. You've separated the 2 barons into Jabba and Yoda. Do I call for Jabba, or Yoda, or just a #3 card?

Note there are already two star wars rethemes out there, one with pictures from the movies, and the other with re-drawn art.

Search on google using
artscow star wars love letter
to find them.

Thanks for the missing space. Didn't even see that.

And yes, they would just say the value. Should play exactly the same though.

Also, if Leia is the Princess, it could end up being that Darth Vader is trying to get his letter of affection to Leia. Nothing like the father trying to hit on his daughter.

That depends on the background-story. In the original game, there is also a prince (brother of the princess) and a king (father of the princess). They don't try to hit on the princess, but are helpers for you to get your letter to her.
The question would be: how is giving the letter to Darth Vader better then giving it to Luke? And wouldn't Han burn it, before giving it to Leia?
