Tough decisions. In Reigns, players will be making tough choices that determine the future of their kingdom, as well as their reign. As you make these decisions, you'll encounter new characters, affect the people and economy, and you'll even complete some royal deeds. What will you do?
Plenty to do. Even though you'll be making plenty of tough choices during your reign, there is still a lot to uncover. You can complete royal deeds, unlock new characters in your kingdom, find interesting new ways to die, and see how high of a score you can get.
Duel and gamble. Every now and then, you'll get the opportunity to duel the general or gamble with the jester. These are fun little additional features that spice things up from the traditional decision making.
What is it about?
A card based adventure in which you swipe either left or right to make various decisions that a king could come across. With every decision that you make, you need to be cognizant of the impact on the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. The goal is to constantly balance the four aspects of your kingdom, as if any of them reach the bottom or top, your reign will end. You get to play through the timeline of modern history with each strategic decision determining how long each given reign will last.

App Store Description
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.
