The King has died! What has happened? Nobody knows, but he was found face down in a wine barrel this morning. It might have been either foul play or his own thirst that did him in. Regardless, the King is dead without any known heirs, so it's up to the five factions of the realm to choose who will be the new king: Will it be yourself or your opponent? Do you have what it takes to win over the realm's various factions?
Claim 2 is played over two distinct phases. In phase one, players gets a hand of cards that they use to recruit followers. In phase two, they will use the followers from phase one to compete and win over the five factions of the realms. Each faction has a special power that will influence play, and powers can be different in each phase! At the end of the game, the player who has the majority of followers of a faction will win that faction's vote, and whoever wins the vote of at least three factions wins the game!
Claim 2 is a standalone sequel to Claim, featuring five new factions that can be played on their own or used in any combination with the factions in Claim.
