Game Play: A win condition is revealed - showing which treasures the players need to collect to win. Then the players each choose one of the two character cards handed to them to play with and return the other to the box. Then "claim cards" depicting treasures are placed on the board and the players take turns secretly playing cards on them in order to boost, trap, or manipulate them. Then each player takes a turn placing one of their special markers on the claim they want "locking" it away from other players, and when that is done all players reveal and resolve all hidden cards and gain their treasure. Each round new claim cards are revealed and played on until someone wins.
Game is fun, fast, and simple, - strategy comes down to an abundance of moves and choices - not just yours, but those your opponents can make, forcing you to always keep other player's potential moves in mind while optimizing your treasure gain.
