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.
The gold rush is on!
Players start with three cards in their hand and their own Secret Stash card out in front of them. In turn you may play or discard one card, as well as hide or swap cards in your own secret stash. Once you add a card to your Secret Stash, you flip the stash card gold-side facing up to indicate there is something hidden there.
Players try to find the gold nugget card in the deck, or steal it from other players.
Whoever is holding on to the gold nugget when the game ends wins!

The Mother Lode tier gets you a copy of our previous game, Houdini's Poutini, at a discount below MSRP.
Houdini’s Poutini is a competitive card game for 2-5 players that plays in around 30-60 minutes. Harry Houdini is throwing a dinner party for the world’s greatest magicians. To make this evening more special, he has prepared a unique delicacy - poutine! Unfortunately for everyone at the party, Houdini is a terrible cook. Each player must use their skills in magic to escape from the party without hurting Houdini’s feelings.
You must collect a combination of items with which you can perform magical escapes from the party. Houdini will mingle about the party, making it more difficult to escape the party without hurting his feelings. You must use your skills as a magician to get your entire troupe free from the party before time runs out and the poutine is served!
For more information on Houdini's Poutini, check out its completed Kickstarter page.
Each copy of Claim will also come with a free previously unreleased promo card that can be added to Houdini's Poutini to unlock a new game mode featuring Houdini's younger brother Hardeen.
If you would like to add on additional copies of Claim to your pledge, please add $13 per copy (no additional shipping fees!)

The time to get Claim: The Search for the Gold Nugget is now!
- Cheaper now than later: Claim will cost $15 at retail, conventions, and in our online store later. Now is the only time to get your game for only $13!
- FREE Shipping: On top of the low cost, Claim will also ship completely free anywhere in the US! Even outside of the US we are offering discounted shipping prices.
- Now or Never: This is an "All or Nothing" campaign, meaning if Claim doesn't hit its funding goal now through this campaign, we won't receive any of the pledged funds and the game cannot be made.
- Be the First! When you back the Kickstarter campaign and it succeeds, you will be among the first in the world to receive your copy.
When you back the game through the Kickstarter, the funds will go directly to the creators and the funding goal will go entirely towards the costs of manufacturing and shipping the game.
We want Claim to be the best it can be from day one. So rather than adding a bunch of stretch goals, we're going to be making Claim with the best quality components at the base funding goal.
That means your game will come with these already unlocked goals:
- High quality cards, 300 gsm with linen finish
- Rule sheet booklet instead of rules printed on cards
- Cloth carrying bag with the name printed on it
If you have any questions, or if there is something that you think could enhance your experience of Claim then please let us know in the comments (or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer), because we are open to suggestions and would love to talk further about any possibilities to make our games their best!
In addition to getting a great deal by backing early on Kickstarter, we're covering all shipping costs within the United States and we're offering discounting shipping to all international backers. When you click on your pledge level and select your country it will automatically add the cost of shipping and charge you for the total when the campaign ends. You can take a look at the chart below to see what your shipping costs will be:
*If you don't see your country, just let us know and we'll add it for you.
We know that shipping costs are very high outside of the United States, but if you are ordering multiple copies of the game the cost of shipping will not increase. So if you are able to organize a larger group order, that would save significantly on shipping costs per copy of the game. Unfortunately we are not able to cover any VAT or custom fees that may be incurred once the game enters your country.
Risks and challenges
We've already successfully fulfilled one Kickstarter campaign, and we were even able to get the rewards out a little earlier than expected. We've had great support from the game community, and continue to talk to others and grow our knowledge.
The game is fully finished and ready to be produced. We just would like your support in order to be able to mass manufacture higher quality components and make it available to you at a cheap price.
Of course with any project there is always risk of delays once it is in the hands of manufacturers and customs, but we have done our best to try to minimize those risks. We have already been in contact with manufacturers and have an experienced customs broker with whom we've worked before. We pledge to keep our backers informed every step of the way and notify of any risk of delay.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
