Gameday First Play – Reign: The Card Game

Posted on by Jesta

Reign is a negotiation game.

This is a quick video overview.

Its strategic and diplomatic game-play is both easy to learn and hard to master. Players take the role of a lord or lady vying after the kingdom of Kazath after a tragic “accident” left Kazath’s previous ruler without an heir and without a head.

The key to victory is holding the Onyx Crown, the symbol of rulership. Gain the Onyx Crown or help someone else take it and you earn legitimacy, gain 9 legitimacy points and hold the Onyx Crown to be named the new rightful ruler of Kazath.

This is a brief overview of the rules then I give my thoughts on it.
