Reigns: Her Majesty is a mobile game where the player takes on the role of a queen making decisions in order to stay on the throne. The player begins the game as a newly crowned queen who immediately needs to start making decisions. Cards will appear on the screen and the player swipes slowly to the right or to the left on the screen to see what their two decision options are. Once they have made their choice, they simply swipe or click in that direction to make the choice. At the top of the screen, there are four icons representing the various types of favor you need to curry within the kingdom. Choices will raise or lower this favor depending on what kind decision you made as queen. If the levels on these icons get too high or two low, the player will lose the game and the queen will be dethroned. A new queen will then assume the throne and the player will have the chance to begin again. While playing through the game, the player can also come into possession of different items such as perfume, revolvers, and spell books which can help charm or sway people, or sometimes even confuse them. These abilities can sometimes be used to save the queen from death, but only if the player knows when to use them. 

As the player cycles through queens, time will move on and different continuity strands between the queens will begin to come together. 

Reigns: Her Majesty is available for purchase on iOS, Android, and Steam.

Reigns: Her Majesty helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Planning: Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

In order to have the longest reign possible for each of your queens, the player needs to use their planning skills effectively. Each decision made by the player will have an effect on the levels of satisfaction or dissatisfaction that the people have with your job. Players need to look at these levels and make decisions that will allow them to remain in power, even if it is not the decision they might have wanted to make. 

Players also need to use planning when they are going to use the items they have at their disposal. If a player needs to charm a bishop to avoid being burned at the stake, they can use their perfume to do this. However, they can only use this once per queen reign so once the item has been used, the player needs to be extra aware of their relationship levels in order to stay on the throne, knowing they will not be able to use this trick again. 

Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

Players need to use their focus skills and pay attention to the events in each round of play with each queen. Some of the events that take place will travel from queen to queen, meaning that they will have an effect on the different storylines even after that queen is dead. Players also need to be able to use their focus when reading. Reigns: Her Majesty is a text-based game with no intelligible voice acting so the player needs to be able to read and understand the information on screen in order to make good in-game decisions.
