The sequel to Nerial & Devolover Digital’s 2016 breakout hit card game Reigns is here. Reigns: Her Majesty offers a lot of the same gameplay as the original while adding a few new features to help keep things fresh. Like the original, players take the role of a monarch and must swipe left or right on various cards to make decisions. The decisions could be simple things like whether you want to send off people to hunt a rare beast, or more complex issues like whether or not to chastise an impolite noble. The decisions you can impact future events and will also impact your standing with the game’s four factions. If your standing with the church, people, military, or financiers hits rock bottom or are maxed out, your reign will swiftly come to an end. Your goal isn’t to pick favorites among the factions but to ensure balance between them.
Reigns: Her Majesty adds a few things to the original game’s formula. The most obvious is, of course, that you play as a queen rather than a king. Players will also have access to an all new inventory system, allowing them to use items on character cards. The game also has more of a focus on your kingdom’s more eccentric personality and the politics of the nobility. Here’s Android Sloth’s review.
Reigns: Her Majesty is $2.99 and does not contain any ads or in app purchases. Here is a trailer and an excerpt from the game’s description:
In Reigns: Her Majesty, a cultural renaissance has bestowed the world with a new era of knowledge and enlightenment, but greed and jealousy still conspire against the benevolent queen. Outwit and outlast those that would seek to depose you and your husband by swiping left or right, making just (or unjust) decisions on all manner of royal matters. Maintain the balance between the kingdom’s most powerful factions, use mystical items from your inventory, and navigate the increasingly complex politics and personal relationships of your dynasty.
