In my time as queen in Reigns: Her Majesty, I was torn apart by my subjects, eaten by wolves, and burned at the stake. I had affairs with pagan women, barbarian queens from other lands, and rakish explorers of new worlds.

In short, Reigns: Her Majesty more Reigns, but better. If you liked the first game, you'll love this one too.

Reigns' devilishly simplistic game of Tinder-like kingdom management feels just as inventive now as it did in 2015, but Reigns: Her Majesty fixes some of its more poorly considered design choices while also putting a refreshing spin on the challenge you face by casting you as a (very powerful) woman in a man's world. The king is dead. Long live the queen!

It's a terrific sequel with its own personality that still leverages the fun, minimalistic mechanics.

Reigns: Her Majesty is an intuitive and addictive experience that adds interactive items and amusing new scenarios to the gameplay of the original game. Playing without a touchscreen however, leaves something to be desired.

At last: royalty I feel emotionally invested in! Reigns: Her Majesty is a smart and surprising extension of the original swipe-'em narrative game.

Reign: Her Majesty is a simple game mechanically, but don't let that fool you. Your decisions are not always easy, and the consequences for bad decisions are often fatal. Tread lightly, My Queen, tread lightly indeed!

After the first, unforgettable chapter, the new Reigns: Her Majesty adds some intriguing gameplay dynamics and a really spot on political subtext. Extremely funny and immediate to play, both on PC and mobile.

Reigns: Her Majesty is a solid sequel if you enjoyed the original, but it suffers from many of the same issues such as repetition, being at the mercy of the deck, and not really offering role playing choice but rather making you micromanage happiness meters. The low price point helps offset some of the annoyances, though.

This series of silly, fantasy scenarios is charming at first, but repeatedly working through the same encounters gets old quickly

Much like its predecessor, Reigns: Her Majesty has a deeply engaging plot and interesting characters that sadly are most of the times held back due to its often-confusing progression methods. To be played in short bursts.
