The chief gaming focus of Level One Gaming League will always be the official monthly video game and tabletop game selections, a complete history of which can be viewed here.
However, in addition to experiencing these larger works, each month a notable free (or nearly free) online or mobile game is also shared with the group for further discussion. The selected "Bonus Round" game for the current month can be viewed on this page, and a complete history of all previous selections is listed below.
Praised for its humor and minimalistic art style, Reigns places players in the role of a medieval monarch tasked with navigating a never-ending list of requests and emergencies. The player is presented with suggestions from various advisers they surround themselves with, and they’re allowed to swipe yes or no depending on the advice put before them. The choices the player makes more often than not results in their inevitable demise through various means, but gameplay continues as they assume the role of their monarch’s heir. With a mix of random occurrences and scripted events, some of which have short-term effects and some which have lasting consequences, Reigns has the potential for hours of gameplay despite its bare-bones interface.
This Bonus Round selection can be found here.
