    Description

    User summary
    ?????????? (Get?Smart Love) is a Japanese card game of match-making, but with somewhat adult themes and language.

    In the game, players are dealt hand cards and draw and play more cards through the game. There are four male character cards dealt face up on the table, and the players are boy-chasers, competing to win the 'best' one. But which man is best is only determined at the finish.

    During the game, players play hand cards against their chosen targets. These attribute cards have positive values for virtues, and negative values for bad behaviour. Some cards are played face-up, some face-down, so there is a strong element of bluffing in the game. Some attribute cards alter the rules as they are played.

    The game is very social and encourages table talk about the good or bad attributes.

    Players also put secret tokens on the male cards, to show their likes or dislikes. After the cards have been played, the players must 'Express Love' by simultaneously pointing at the man they chose. If only player chooses one man, they get him. If more than player points at one man, the player with the highest token wins him.

    Then all the attribute cards are flipped and the value of the different men is calculated. The player who picked the best man, wins!

    There are two Versions of the game, this second edition is themed on women trying to get the best boyfriend. There is another edition with the genders swapped, and the men are trying to get the best girlfriend - ?????????? (Get?Sweet Love). Whilst the games are very similar, there are differences in the special cards which affect the gameplay. With both editions, you can combine and play an 8 player game.

    The game name has a couple of twists. The English name can be abbreviated to Ge?S Love, which for Japanese readers equates to 'guess love', trying to guess which girl to choose. But the name ???? in Japanese, has the word ?? in it, which is used in many vulgar or even obscene words in Japanese. So the publisher is deliberately signalling to buyers that the game is for adults but still sociable, since the girl-chasers will be nice to some girls, and not so nice to others. This version has gone through five reprints in Japan and always draws a crowd at game shows, with its risque design (by Japanese standards).
