The 2-player version of this game is Gottlieb's 1974 'Big Brave'.

Prior to production, this game was named 'Chief' and then renamed to 'Big Injun'. Sample games were produced as 'Big Injun' and, according to the Encyclopedia of Pinball Vol 1, the Native American employees in Gottlieb's wiring and assembly plant in South Dakota complained about this. So, the name was changed again, to 'Big Indian', stalling production for three months.

Price to operator: $975 FOB Chicago, per newsletter from authorized distributor dated March 1974.​
