As any other Placentia Games board game (Bretagne, Florenza, Kepler-3042, ecc.), Wendake is based on  perfectly tested, balanced and innovative rules, but also on great care of theme.

In this game you will get in touch with the traditions and the everyday life of these tribes between 1756-1763, when the 7-Year-War between France and England took place in their territories. However, throughout the game, war is a secondary aspect: the focus is on the Native’s lives, their villages, fields and forests. Here you won’t find the traditional teepees: the Natives of the Great Lakes were sedentary, living in long houses. The women farmed Beans, Corn, and Pumpkins, while men hunted beavers in the forests, mainly to sell their pelts as leather.

Wendake is the product of our passionate studies on the Native American community. We have tried to turn history into a strategic game that will put you in the shoes of a tribe leader of the Great Lakes. We hope you will enjoy the game, and that you will use it as a starting point to learn something about these great people, and their glorious, final era. 

 The strength of our project is our “Made in Italy” team!

  • Placentia Games, Post Scriptum, Scribabs, Alan D’Amico: all together, we have already created much-appreciated board games that eurogame enthusiasts love (like Bretagne and Kepler-3042) and that were successfully launched on Kickstarter. 
  • Danilo Sabia is a debuting author, who has been chosen because of the robustness of his ideas and his reliable work ethics when dealing with the playtests. We are very selective when it comes to authors! Thank you for your trust, guys!
  • Angelo Lacerenza as Native American expert, who guided us through this land full of fascination.
  • Andrea Bianchin, The BTREES team, Andrea Pomelli & William Niebling, who help us to develop this Kickstarter campaign and its social aspects.
  • All the bloggers, reviewers and playtesters who tried our game and liked it a lot.
  • And, last but not least, our fantastic community who always supports us in every project! We want to realize many other games for you!

Be strong, wise, and may the Great Spirits drive you and your tribe towards the prosperity of Wendake!  

 

Risks and challenges

We are a solid and skillful company. Supporting us will give us the opportunity to build new, enjoyable games dedicated to you and our community.
