Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk!
Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This game absolutely floored us. It seems straightforward at first—you’re a king, and you’re presented with choices about how to rule as a deck of cards. Swipe right to choose one path, swipe left for another. But there’s so very much more going on, and without spoiling anything, Reigns’ cleverness, humor, and sometimes agonizing choices routinely surprised and always delighted us.
Addictive memory tester with a bite
Essentially this is a memory card game which adds the spice of wickedly funny (and dark) humour while satirising the whole "kings and kingdoms" genre playfully. There is (as many detractors note) a strong element of luck in the game and you can do everything right and still have your king get it in the neck. Still, it is possible to turn the tide in your own favour and it's a real sense of achievement when you manage to get your king to a 'natural death'. Brilliant.
Good game but can’t view achievements
This game is great. It is a well spent $4.50. However, though this game has Game Center achievements, it is not currently possible to view these achievements. Please fix this.
