After the death of Yonaguska, the Cherokee tribe meets to select a new leader. As always with the Native Americans, the wise elders have the most influence and occupy the highest positions in the hierarchy. Due to their old age, however, they are also vulnerable to the youngsters, who want to take their place and will not hesitate to challenge their opponents. Which clan can obtain the most feathers and thus select the new leader? In Cherokee, players try to occupy the most and highest positions in the hierarchy with their clan members. On a turn, a player chases away one member in the pyramid of cards, which represents the hierarchy of the tribe. This gap is then filled with one successor from below, with that gap being filled likewise. At the end of a turn, the player adds one card from his hand to the final gap in the base of the pyramid. Cherokee is a game of paranoia – which colors are your enemies?
