About the Game:
NAVAJO WARS is a solitaire game which covers one of the longest struggles waged on the North American continent. From the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1595 until Colonel Christopher “Kit” Carson’s brutal Navajo Campaign of 1863, the Diné — the Navajo — fought to preserve their way of life.
In NAVAJO WARS, you the player must use skillful planning and cunning against a constantly changing and persistent enemy. NAVAJO WARS uses a unique mix of cards and an enemy instruction matrix to drive the actions of the enemy. More than just chart-checking and die-rolling, in NAVAJO WARS, the player has to make lots of meaningful decisions in order to win.
To keep the enemy at bay, you must use skillful planning to build up your tribe’s population. You must attack enemy outposts, and raid enemy settlements. You will need to plant and harvest corn, and develop herds of sheep as well as horses in order to survive the slow desertification of the American Southwest. You will need the wisdom of your tribe’s elders to guide your people through treacherous times. You need to develop your tribe’s culture to survive the influences of an alien civilization set out to subjugate you.
Along the way, the Ute, Comanche, and Apache tribes will ally with the colonists of New Mexico against you! You’ll also face intermittent wars with the Hopi and Zuni Pueblo tribes! You’ll face off against the Spanish, Mexicans, and Americans in an epic struggle for survival.
