Players hide "letterboxes" somewhere on the board and write clues for the other players. Everyone then attempts to find as many letterboxes as possible. A player gains victory points both when she finds other letterboxes and when other players find hers. The game ends when one player has found all other letterboxes. The player with the most victory points is then the winner.

CDRodeffer 0 With the right group, it's a wonderful game, and it's probably especially good with a regular group. But if one or two new players join a group that knows each other much better, the new players will be at a huge (more pronounced than in, for example, Zendo) disadvantage.
Cerulean 0 An artistic deduction exercise. It sounds cumbersome to play in person (except for actual letterboxing).
Draw5PlayAll 0 Only tried with three players. Needs four.

Laurie_Menke 0 As a growing fan of both Piecepack and Letterbox, and as one who enjoys the creative side of games such as Telegram, I was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, I enjoyed it much less than I expected to. :o(
