In the rules, you have an example of an open claim that requires having 3 female characters in your saloon. In the example, the player gets to take the claim immediately upon meeting the criteria. What happens if someone moves a character from his saloon so he no longer meets the criteria for that claim? Does it revert back to being an open claim?

I would assume that a similar secret claim only counts at the very end of the game since you can't...um...claim it til then, but was unsure about an open one.

Staking a Claim is a free action that you take on your turn to score an Open Claim. This can be done as soon as you have the requirements and once it is scored, no one else can get it. Thus you should take the card when this happens (which also allows you to check your score if you need to).

If you lose a character the next turn it does not have any bearing on Open claims you have already achieved.

Secret Claims are different because you MUST have it at the end of the game. If you have the requirements in the middle of the game but then lose a character you need by the end of the game, you do NOT get to score the Secret Claim at the end of the game.

Hope that makes sense.
