In Sleeping Queens, players need to use strategy, quick thinking, and a little luck to rouse napping nobles from their royal slumbers. The twelve queen cards lie face-down on the table. On a turn, you take one action from the cards in your hand: play a king to awaken and claim a sleeping queen, play a knight to steal someone else's queen, play a potion to send a queen to sleep once again, use a jester to try out your luck with the top of the deck, or discard one or more number cards to draw more cards. Whenever all the required queens have been awakened or one player hits the point threshold, the game ends and whoever has the most points wins.
