Reigns Her Majesty-ish

Leigh Rose

This “game” took me a while to figure out how to play but I’ve come up with a good answer that won’t have me shot and won’t have me praised too much until I face an untimely death by a crowd. “Reigns Her Majesty” is a sequel to the first Reigns game. Basically, it’s a strategy game of logic where all choices will result in your present time as a Queen until your death. Depending on how long you live for, the choices you make will eventually get you killed. The goal of the game is simple: You have four icons that fill up in yellow. One is a cross (representing the Church), A person (your reputation within your kingdom), A sword (your strength), and a dollar signs (your money). With these four icons, you mustn’t fill them too high or too low otherwise it will result in death. You also have objectives that you can finish with whichever Queen you are, and if you do these you get rewards that go in your pouch that get saved for later and can be used when the pyramid icon flashes above your pouch when available. During this gameplay, you meet a character named the All-Mother (basically a Goddess of Paganism) and she reels you in with special items, and advice in which you can either serve her or serve your own God (being the Church). Watch out though as the more you hang out with the All-Mother the less your reputation with the Church can dramatically decrease. Overall it’s a great game and fun to play.

Too meta for its own good


This game is fun but misses the mark on a few things - mainly on the pacing of the player experience and on the evolution of the story. The game can be very funny and is at its best when it’s not trying to be cryptic. I just wanted to play the game where I am the queen and am put in interesting situations, but the game kept getting in its own way. When it started getting all meta it lost me. In addition, I wonder how much playtesting was actually done, as I found myself several times in situations that felt like dead ends (they had low probability and/or cryptic solutions). The emphasis seems to have been put in the narrative, at the expense of the actual game/puzzle design, leading to far too many situations where I felt like I was making no progress at all. There is a “fail safe” mechanic that in theory allows you to manipulate your play through to achieve a higher chance of specific events occurring but it is tedious, hard and sloppy to use. I would say the devs missed the mark on making a better Reigns, so I recommend you see this as a weird experiment done with the Reigns system, not as Reigns 2.
