Symposium, December 6, 2018: Reigns: Her Majesty

3ba103652bd52bcdbe80e98b4551ab848bcbae4b

What does it mean to be a queen? Can you balance the church, people, military, and economy? Reigns: Her Majesty (2017) gives a glimpse into a simulation of a medieval kingdom and its challenges. Let’s start our conversation there.

As a simulation, what does Reigns: Her Majesty (2017) expose? What does it hide? With its emphasis on binary choices, do we see a serious engagement of ruling, or does the more sillier aspects ask use to “game” our choices? Are we learning to be a ruler, or “playing at” several layers removed from the more serious nature of some of the choices?

Voice chat over Discord, 8:30pm EDT / 5:30pm PDT.
