New release from White Goblin Games: Cherokee
2e Exloërmond, The Netherlands – 350,000 copies is what he sold from his most successful game to date, Saboteur. We’re talking about Belgian game designer Fréderic Moyersoen, of course. His newest release – called Cherokee and being published by White Goblin Games in May – has the same potential. It’s one of those games that offers a lot of fun, in a rather small package… A tin can, that is.
White Goblin Games will publish the game in a multilingual edition, including rules books in English, German, French and Dutch. The story line is just as simple as the game itself: After the death of Yonaguska, the Cherokee tribe meets to select a new leader. As always with the Native Americans, the wise elder have the most influence and occupy the highest positions in the hierarchy. In view of their old age they are also vulnerable to the youngsters, who want to take their place and do not hesitate to challenge their opponents. Which clan can obtain the most feathers and thus select the new leader?
The aim of the game is to get members of your clan as high in the human pyramid as possible, as well as as often as possible. Players will however definitely try to hide their clan colour in this very easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-win card game. If you don’t keep your identity secret during the battle for selecting the new leader, you might not be able to win this game.
A trailer for Cherokee has been released in the meantime on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLlMkOuPpZ0. After the success of Get Nuts (see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/69587/get-nuts) this is the second, ‘own’ release from Dutch publisher White Goblin Games this year so far.
Cherokee will be expected in stores May 28th. The game will make its debut on the Zuiderspel fair, Eindhoven (NL), April 25th, where it will already be demonstrated!
