"Wendake" is the name that the Wyandot people use for their traditional territory. This population, also known as the Huron Nation, lived in the Great Lakes region, together with the tribes who formed the Iroquois Confederacy, and many others. In this game, you will explore the traditions and everyday life of these tribes during the 1756–1763 period, when the Seven Years’ War between the French and the English took place in these territories.

But this white man’s war is only a marginal aspect of the game; the focus is on life in the native villages, fields, and forests. In this game, you won’t find the traditional tipis, which were used by southwestern tribes who moved their camps to follow the bison herds. The natives of the Great Lakes were more sedentary, living in longhouses. The women farmed beans, corn, and pumpkins, while the men hunted beavers in the forests, mainly to sell their pelts as leather.

In Wendake, you step into the shoes of the chief of a Native American tribe. You will have to manage the most important aspects of your tribe’s daily existence, thereby earning points on the Economic, Military, Ritual, and Mask tracks. The core of the game is the action selection mechanism: you will have the opportunity to choose better and better actions over 7 years (i.e., rounds), and the winner will be the chief who finds the best combinations of actions and uses them to lead their tribe to prosperity!

Hidden gem with a cool scoring mechanic
Tuesday, 8 January 2019  | 

Wendake is a great area control/resource gathering game with a really interesting action taking system similar to tic-tac-toe/naughts and crosses. You get four actions in a round, one has to be used to decide turn order in the next round, the other three you play on your personal board with the the restriction being that the actions you take must be in straight line, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. These actions can be upgraded to be more efficient along the way.

The real trick to the game is scoring points on the four tracks evenly as at the end of the game, you're only going to score the lowest of each pair of scoring tracks.

This would be a 5 star game for me if the components were a little nicer as it's all very cardboard-y.
