Sleeping Queens Review

Welcome to the world of Sleeping Queens! This is a card game which immerses you into a fantastical place where there’s a Rainbow Queen, a Cookie King, dragons and sleeping potions.  This is a world produced with great imagination and the story behind its creation is as delightful as the game itself...

Sleeping Queens was invented by six-year-old Miranda Evarts, who thought up the game one night when she couldn’t fall asleep. She awoke the next morning and created this wonderfully whimsical world of napping nobles, along with help from her older sister, Madeleine and her parents, Denise and Max.

Royal Rousing Gameplay

The aim of Sleeping Queens is to collect the required number of queens or points worth of queens (based on player count) before your opponents. There are different ways of achieving this goal. These include the use of sleeping potions to send your opponents' queens back to sleep unless your opponent has a wand to defend themselves.

Another offensive card to play is the knight card which allows you to steal any of your opponents' awakened queens.  The knight card can also be countered, however, by a dragon card played by an opponent. It is the thematic use of these royalty themed cards which makes Sleeping Queens such a joy to play.

The length of gameplay is quite short but the exciting finale to each game means that it's a rare thing to play this game just once before putting it away. Gameplay is exciting and tense and produces lots of laughter and banter along the way!

Fun and Educational - Thoughts on Sleeping Queens

Sleeping Queens is not a card game for the heavy, serious gamer but one for families with younger children. It's a fun experience for gamers of all ages, but is also helpful for developing the memory, strategy, and elementary arithmetic skills of children.

It’s a great filler game and is ideal for taking away with you on travels and holidays. I've enjoyed many hours of entertainment playing Sleeping Queens with my kids and it's also served as a great gateway game to more challenging card games for them.
