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.

What's New in Version 1.08

Please do not be mislead by reviews comparing Reigns to a choose-your-own adventure game/story. Reigns is not a game or a story. The "choices" in Reigns are a random mishmash that have no continuity, no story, and more times than not lead to consequences that make no sense. Reigns is not a "game" because games have rules, not arbitrary consequences. Let me put it clearly, there is _no_ gaming or strategy here. You make a choice, it affects four "indicators" of your kingdom's health (often in nonsensical ways), then you make another completely disconnected choice, it has its affects, etc. Reigns is also not a story because stories have continuity, character development, a plot, etc., and there is none of that in Reigns. So this is not a game or a story, and certainly not a choose-your-own adventure. So long as you are not expecting an actual game or an actual story, you might be somewhat entertained by Reigns. Some of the choices and characters are supposed to be funny. However, most of the attempts at humor I didn't find very clever.
Simple game with a simple concept, cool design. This is a game of DECISIONS.
Choose how to rule and what kind of legacy you leave behind. If you love choose-your-own-adventure type of games, you'll like Reigns. Lots of cool little achievements to check off, and i love all the characters you meet throughout the game. Some of the cards are pretty funny. I can keep playing for hours, trying to remain king as many years as possible without dying in the process!
Maybe have a pause button discreetly implemented somewhere in the interface, just cause it's easy to have your finger slip and you accidentally swipe the card the wrong way. Not a huge deal though. So glad i bought this!
One of the best games I've ever played.
I love this game so much and it is time consuming and I like how you added a new character to the game on the recent update and I think that you should continue to add more characters in the future to make it even better. Good job with the game, but as you go throughout the years and eras, every time you reach a new time where there was new technology and where people dressed different than medieval, you should add in the game where the setting changes since you won't be in medieval years anymore, if you get what I'm saying. But good job overall.👑 👑 👑 👍🏻
