CUDO Plays Recommends

This week CUDO Plays recommends the game mentioned above, Claim!

Claim is a light deduction and bluffing card game for 2-4 players. It plays in around 20-30 minutes, and is appropriate for all ages. Each player is a prospector mining for gold and trying to strike it rich! You’ll sluice the river and mine the caves in search of the Gold Nugget, but other prospectors will try to steal and hide the elusive Nugget for themselves. Whoever holds onto the Gold Nugget at the end of the game wins! Claim is quick to learn and easy to play and teach, but contains a surprising amount of strategy. A cool, local 20-30 minute game that plays with 2-4 players.
