Written by on January 22, 2024

Fix your crown to enter the queen era of Darrington Press!

Just on the heels of Queen by Midnight, Darrington Press has just announced their release of a new edition of the beloved storytelling game For the Queen by Alex Roberts (Diana Jones Award winner, Starcrossed, Till the Last Gasp), coming to your palace on May 14, 2024!

For the Queen is an easy-to-learn 2-6 player (or more!) collaborative card-based game in which you must work together to build a tale of love, betrayal, doubt, and devotion towards the Queen. To inspire the Queen of your story, you’ll select one of the 25 beautiful illustrations, or get creative and design your own! With 91 cards included for gameplay, this new edition of For the Queen allows an endless amount of stories, genres, and fun for everyone.

Promo cards by Mike Pape and Ameera Sheikh—exclusively available at Darrington Press Guild stores!

You’ll be able to purchase For the Queen on May 14th for $24.99 at Darrington Press Guild stores, Critical Role online shops (US, UK, CA, AU, and EU), and other friendly local gaming stores on May 14th! And as a bonus, Darrington Press Guild stores will have some exclusive cards of our very own princesses from Queen by Midnight, illustrated by Mike Pape and Ameera Sheikh, reimagined as ruling Queens! You can find your local Darrington Press Guild stores here, or if you’re a retailer, apply today!
