Reigns Game of Thrones

Now that Game of Thrones, the HBO series, has ended - I am looking for an alternative to appease my GoT cravings. One of those is the little gem that is the Reigns Game of Thrones, available in Android. 

Reigns is a role-playing game wherein the player gets to play a ruler character. In the Reigns Game of Thrones version, the player gets to play Daenerys, Tyrion, Jon Snow, Cersei, Jaime, Sansa, Arya or Gendry, with the final character card of the Three Eyed Raven who is played to finish the game. In order to get the characters, I followed this guide.The game is a binary format: the player gets to pick out of two choices for each situation. Each choice will have impact on one or more of the 4 aspects of ruling the realm: Power, Faith, People and Bank. In order to survive, the 4 aspects must be balanced - maxing out or running out with one of them will result in a scenario of death. There are 29 destinies to be met, so far I have 27 of them:

Memento mori
  1. More Wine
  2. Daenerys' Flight - Play as Daenerys. Choose to leave for the Wall or to Mereen.
  3. Arya's Neck - Play as Arya. When meeting Cersei, spare her life.
  4. Rusty Throne - When you die during winter.
  5. Walk of Shame - When your Faith runs out.
  6. Faceless Man - When your Faith is maxed out.
  7. Wildfire Bath - When your Power is maxed out.
  8. The Pole - When your People is maxed out.
  9. Greyscale - When your Power runs out.
  10. Kiss of the Lover - When you allow Maria Sand (House Martell) to be your lover for the night. Also when your Bank is maxed out.
  11. Forty Swords - When your Bank runs out. Also when your are recognised at the Tavern.
  12. Lost Underground - When your People runs out.
  13. Mad Revenge - Play as Cersei. Someone will say the Mountain has been found dead. Reply 'I needed him'. Your Grand Maester will ask for his body to be revived. Accept and when the Grand Maester appears again regarding the Mountain. Tell him 'I need him'. Try to 'Fix Him' then later on, your Grand Maester will say the Mountain killed your Queensguard and is charging at you.
  14. Nine Ravens - Play as the Three Eyed Raven. Head beyond the Wall and a White Walker will try to kill you. You will be saved by the ravens.
  15. Twins Embrace - Play as Jaime. When Cersei is been spotted, capture her. Go for the Trial of Cersei and instead of killing her, choose taking the poison with her.
  16. In the melee - Keep on losing in a battle. Also, when a Black Brother say 'you are needed on the Wall now', decline. Then at night, something approaches. Approach the chest then duck to your right.
  17. Sad Revenge - Play as Jaime. Arya will appear and ask you to play her 'game of faces'.  Play the game and whatever you choose, you will be pushed thru the window.
  18. Shadow Lands - When your Lord of Whispers (Lord Varys for me) says there is an assassination attempt on you, choose the affirmative. A handmaiden will then say that your guard has been attacked by a manticore. Call your Lord of Whispers and he will suggest a bold response - they will act that the assassination succeed and you will be hidden. Agree on this and your Lord of Whisper will betray you and you cannot go back to your throne.
  19. Butterfly Fever - A handmaiden will say a gift for you from Naath has arrived an offer to open it. Choose to open it yourself.
  20. Fangs - Accept a gift from Lady Mearow (House Tyrell) where she will say "don't worry, it's sedated". Also, when you play as Cersei, go to Winterfell. Go for the hunting expedition and do not leave everytime you are asked. Scream when you encounter Nymeria.
  21. Bloody Throne - Kick the bloody raven.
  22. Broken Things - Joust during the tourney. Keep on losing in the joust.
  23. Silent Sister - Play as Sansa. Agree to a Septa will say 'would you like to get away from all of this?'
  24. Dragon Hunger https://www.appunwrapper.com/2018/10/17/reigns-game-of-thrones-deaths/
  25. Bitterness - Play as Daenerys. Accept refreshment from the Handmaiden. Also, when you get a cough, do not accept treatment.
  26. Gendry's Curse - Play as Gendry. Melisandre will ask to discuss things further tonight and reply 'Do you know what I want' and she will answer 'Delights of all kinds'. Select yes.
