BGG Tom Vasel's review
BGG Greg D.:"Love playing it with the kids- just the right amount of rules + strategy for the young ones... "
BGG John Snow:"This is a great game to play with people on a more social occasion. The beginning of each game is a little slow, but it doesn't take long to shift to a higher gear. Great fun!!!"
BGG Chip Buvais:"This is a good, fairly quick, stake-claiming game. Encourgage multiple opponents to lay their claim markers on the same mine and try to take a lesser mine all to yourself."
BGG Tom W.:"Out of the Box version. It's quick, it's fun, and there's the perfect amount of thinking required so that the whole family can play and enjoy it. Our kids love it, and the quickness of the games allows for another one right away to even out the feeling of having either a wonderful or awful set of cards from the last one. "
BGG Ben Lott:"Strategy is actually kind of deep in this simple little game. There is some luck, but it can be mitigated by cleverly timed card-play. The only drawback is that the luck of the draw can sometimes stop players from winning, but proper planning should help you avoid that. I love the cartoony artwork and the hilarious names they give the different characters."
How To Play: Players have 3 claims which they can place in the mines to claim a stake of the gold that is in there by the end of the game. Throughout the game, players take turns to place a card against the six mines - either a character card (which allows you to place a claim in that particular mine), or a gold card to fill the mine with gold. Gold cards can even be fool's gold which is worthless! When all cards are placed, the game ends, the loot is split, and the person with the most gold wins the game.
