Staking Claims is a free mobile and web strategy game. It is a digital version of the 'old school' pen and paper game, Cheese Squares. Players take turns to draw lines onto a square grid; the idea being to complete squares to secure them. The discovery of gold in the Californian countryside lead to a stampede for wealth. Tens of thousands simply downed tools and travelled to the gold fields. Imagine that you are in command of an army of gold hunters, trying to claim riches from as much land as possible before other bands of fortune seekers beat you to the punch. You’ll ‘draw’ fences on the land, and once you’ve fenced off a full square, that land will be yours. Of course, some areas of land are more valuable than others, so you’ll need to be creative as to how you place your fences to fend off the competition. Command your gold hunters in a single player mode against an AI, or compete against friends. Staking Claims is a unique title with hot seat multiplayer, played with a single device.
