In Tribe Twelve, the Observer states Noah is part of a chess game. The known people are the black king, the white pawn, the black rook, the white knight, the white king, and the black pawn, queen, and rook. Other pieces are there. There is speculation that there are more pieces that are in play, but none have been revealed.
The Board of Play, as it was called on the livestream, looks to be about the eastern US with select States. While this comes up a lot it is more of a metaphor to Noah's struggling.
Here is who/what the pieces are:
