A cultural renaissance has bestowed the world with a new era of knowledge and enlightenment but greed and jealousy still conspire against the benevolent queen. Outwit and outlast those that would seek to depose you and your husband by swiping left or right, making just (or unjust) decisions on all manner of royal matters. Maintain the balance between the kingdom’s most powerful factions, use mystical items from your inventory, and navigate the increasingly complex politics and personal relationships of your dynasty.

If you enjoyed the original Reigns then you’re going to love this sequel. And you don’t need any knowledge about the first to jump in and experience this new game either. And if you’re reluctant to play a game that focuses on a female character, well, not to beat around the bush, but you don’t deserve the fun that Reigns: Her Majesty offers.
Most of the time, I found the repetition to be meditative and enjoyable. Especially as a mobile game, it’s terrific to be able to pick up and rule for a few minutes (before meeting a gruesome end) at a time. However, sifting through the same text over time may get tiresome for some folks. It’s a terrific sequel with its own personality that still leverages the fun, minimalistic mechanics.
Her Majesty has a couple of interesting moments but largely follows the formula of the first game and fails to evolve into something special. I applaud developer Nerial's drive to innovate with this simplified strategy adventure, but this collection of mildly interesting moments fails to remain compelling over the long haul. Maybe the life of a queen isn't as exciting as we think.
