Sleeping Queens 10th Anniversary Tin Card Game

Rise and Shine! The Pancake Queen, the Ladybug Queen and ten of their closest friends have fallen under a sleeping spell and it’s your job to wake them up. Use strategy, quick thinking and a little luck to rouse these napping nobles from their royal slumbers. Play a knight to steal a queen or take a chance on a juggling jester. But watch out for wicked potions and dastardly dragons! The player who wakes the most queens wins. Imagine a place where there’s a queen of all pancakes, a king of cookies and a pack of over-protective dragons. If this sounds like something out of a dream, it actually is! Sleeping Queens was invented by 6-year-old Miranda Evarts, who thought up the game one night when she couldn’t fall asleep. She awoke the next morning and with help from her older sister, Madeleine and her parents, Denise and Max created this wonderfully whimsical world of napping nobles. As you immerse yourself in the Evarts’s fantasyland, you will find a game that helps develop memory, strategy, and elementary arithmetic skills. Just be careful when playing potion cards or you could wind up putting all the players to sleep!

  • Wake up the Queens form their royal slumbers!
  • Play a Knight to steal a Queen or take a chance on a juggling Jester
  • Watch out for potions and dastardly Dragons!
  • Playing Time: 20 minutes
  • 2 to 5 players

    I had played this game about 10 years ago and remembered loving it. I just wasn’t sure how my 8 and 4 year old boys would do. My 8 year old picked up on it immediately and loves it! To discard the number cards, you try to come up with an equation to get rid of as many cards as you can (a 2, 3, and 5 card can be played as 2+3=5). This is great addition/subtraction practice for him. My husband really enjoys this part of the game as well, coming up with most complex equations he can think of with a max of 5 numbers at a time. He’ll throw in multiplication and division. My 4 year old has figured out how to play the game, except for the equation aspect, of course. He knows he can discard any matching numbers, but when he has a bunch of number cards he will just hand the cards to me to see if there is an equation he can use. Other than that, he can play the game completely on his own and has the same chance of winning as anyone else. The artwork on the cards is adorable and gameplay seems to be just right at about 15 minutes per game. The more people playing, the better as you appreciate having time between turns to figure out how to discard all the number cards in your hand. Hands down, this is the favorite game of everyone in the family and we have played it daily since buying it.

    Add us to the list of happy players! 4.5 year old loves it. As do I! It was a little overwhelming the first round, but now seems intuitive and easy. Playing the video on Amazon would have helped my child and myself. I loathe games of pure chance and find the cooperation games kind of boring. This was refreshing. While you’re reading, I also recommend Mancala for this age group. We’ve been loving that and sleeping queens!!

    The tin is nice but should have slots for the cards instead of one holder for both times of cards. Weird choice to just keep them in one big stack since there are two different card types.
