Originally debuted at Essen 2017 by Italian publishers Placentia Games and Post Scriptum, Wendake will be available in North America this fall. Wendake is the name the Wyandot People, also know as the Huron Nation, used for their traditional territory. The Wyandot lived in the Great Lakes region of the U.S. with the Iroquois, Shawnee, Potomac, Seneca, and other peoples. Historically, the game is set during the Seven Years War between the French and English from 1756 -1763, but really has very little to do with the lives of the Native people.
Players take the role of chief of one of these tribes, managing the daily lives of the village, and earning points on various economic, military, ritual, and mask tracks. Over seven rounds, players select actions to take, with the opportunities becoming better as the game progresses. The goal is to find the best combinations of actions and lead the tribe to prosperity.
The game is for 1 – 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 60 – 120 minutes. MSRP is $65.00.
Renegade will also be releasing a new edition of Arboretum this fall (see "Renegade Reinvigorates 'Arboretum'").
