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.

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.
This game is and incredible experience, it mixes all the dullness of political strife with fast paced duels and the result is a surprise to be sure, but a welcome on.
This game has ALMOST no faults, it’s smooth the sound effects are sharp and nice to listen to and the overall gameplay is addictive perfect for a waiting room or car journey.
However one fault I have noticed is that there is a minor lack of content. (I feel really scummy for saying this but I have seen other people say the same thing). For me once I “beat the game” I felt as though there was nothing more to do, and this is where the monotony kicked in.
In conclusion I feel this a an incredible game with next to no graphical or technical issues however just a slight lack of content for the £2.99 price tag, in my opinion.
Innovative and refreshing
I absolutely loved this little game, I’ve been playing it on and off for a few weeks now. I ended up with 700 discovered cards but unfortunately I couldn’t break the ‘curse.’ Failing to break it means that I couldn’t progress past a certain point, but I’m still proud of how far I got. I look forward to seeing more from the developers!
