Before the settlers arrived on the great open plains, the life of the Native Americans was driven by the move of the big buffalo herds. Each player becomes chief of a tribe and tries to survive this hard life without disturbing the balance of nature. As the buffaloes are moved by all players it might be useful to have a pow-wow to find out how the herd will move ...
The game will accompany the buffaloes from the left side to the right side of the game board. It is up to you where your tribe starts. You win the game if you manage to have more tipis at the end of the game than the other players. But you also have to be able to support your tipis and that becomes more and more difficult when the buffaloes move on!
As long as there are sufficient buffaloes around you may feel confident to build new tipis on the game board. But when the other players decide where the buffaloes move to, you should not fall behind. Only the tipis are which made it to the open plains before the game ends are saved.
