A 4-page game that slams with its effectiveness. Judge for yourself: the queen is dead and we are gathered around her body; we remember her reign, the good times and the bad; we hide our resentment and contain our love. It's all based on a system of choices to be checked and colored stones to be distributed and it's devilishly effective; the kind of game to put in your bag and take out at the first opportunity.

Thanks so much for the kind words - glad you enjoyed it!
