Indian Chief was released in 1978 by Milton Bradley. It is a strategy board game for 2 to 4 players. The goal of the game is to be the first player to reach the end of the game board by collecting enough Indian Chiefs and avoiding the traps set by the other players.
The game board is made up of a series of paths, each of which leads to a different Indian Chief. Players move their pieces around the board by rolling dice. If a player lands on a space with an Indian Chief, they can collect that Indian Chief if they have enough money. Players can also collect money by landing on spaces with gold coins.
However, players must also be careful not to land on spaces with traps. If a player lands on a trap space, they must either pay money to the other players or lose one of their Indian Chiefs.
The first player to reach the end of the game board by collecting enough Indian Chiefs wins the game.
Indian Chief was a popular board game in the 1970s. It was praised for its simple but challenging gameplay and its colorful artwork. However, the game has been criticized for its stereotypical portrayal of Native Americans.
In 2020, Milton Bradley announced that they would be discontinuing Indian Chief due to its insensitive portrayal of Native Americans.
