Tenakee, first released by Olves Spiele in 2005, pits players as Indians building totem poles.
Each player starts with a hand of fourteen totem pole cards (each worth 1-10) along with three top cards, two squaw cards and two warrior cards. On a turn, each player secretly sets aside three of his cards, then players take turns playing cards one at a time in clockwise order. Top cards can be played only on totem poles without a warrior; squaw cards can be played only on top of a warrior card. In both cases, the totem pole is claimed by whoever played the top or squaw card. Warrior cards can be played only on a pole (even an empty pole) that has no other warriors. Only three totem poles (or four with five players) can be in progress at a time, so while you have choices over when to play your three cards, some plays might be forced or illegal depending on the current situation.
After seven rounds, the game ends and players score points for all of the pole cards in their stacks.
