"Each player takes the role of an (American) Indian Brave (Young Warrior). Players compete to accumulate prestige by their deeds."
The game uses a custom deck of cards. There are nine types of cards in the deck: Tribe, Weapon, Dress, Approach, Coup, Hunt/Trade, Luck, Spirit, and Trade. The cards are used to engage in various activities.
Players collect Eagle Feathers by participating in raids, which come in four different types: Horse Raids, War Parties, Revenge Raids, and Pipeholder Raids. Players may also hunt, hold tribal gatherings, and trade.
