Monarch is a light card-based strategy game for 2-4 players designed by Mary Flanagan that lasts around 45 minutes a game (once you all know what you are doing).

The primary mechanic in this card game like many others is set collection; each of the sisters aims to assemble a court of Court Cards in order to prove her worth.

The sisters will recruit everything from wise advisors, exotic animals, and symbolic regalia. Each of these Court Cards provides crowns, and the sister whose court contains the most crowns at the end of the game becomes the Queen.

Simple Right?

However, there are some tricks to assembling a majestic court that will achieve great results. (and win you the game)

Some cards don’t work together well just like people in real life the Astronomer, for example, is worth nothing if in a court with the Fireworks because he will be unable to watch the stars!

The Game is a fantastic Deck Builder/set collecting game that has enough weight behind it to give it hours of
