This week on the Moving Pixels Podcast, we discuss the tinder-esque mobile kingdom simulator, Reigns.
I am sometimes surprised at some of the games we do for the podcast are able to sustain a discussion. For as simple as Reigns is and as reductive as it has to be to fit the format, it has a lot of commentary embedded into its structure. At one point I call it a game of political one-liners. While true for a lot of the mini-quests that make up the deck of cards, it’s a bit reductive to regarding the meaning in the mechanics.
