Product Description

The Quest for Fire is a game of strategy and cunning set in a prehistoric age. The players take the role of tribal leaders who compete for opportunities to hunt dinosaurs, expand their influence and discover new technologies. Be the first to discover fire and usher in the age of modern humanity!

Cavemen: The Quest for Fire is a card-drafting game in which players take the role of tribal leaders. The tribes compete for opportunities to hunt dinosaurs, recruit tribesmen, and discover new technologies, vying to be the first with enough knowledge and prestige to invent fire and usher in the age of modern humanity!

You have two resources to manage: Food and Teeth. You must spend Food each turn in order to keep your Tribe from starving. Teeth indicate prestige among the tribes. Use Teeth to bid for the conch and to acquire Cavemen and Caves.

Each turn, cards are drawn from the deck to fill a common Card Pool. Players take actions based on what is available in the pool. For example, if a Beast is drawn into the Card Pool, you can hunt it for Food and claim its Teeth as a sign of your bravery.

If you hold the conch during the Action Phase, you benefit by taking your Action first and taking a second Action after everyone else has gone once. Players can bid Teeth to take control of the Conch from another player. This can be important to get the first pick of the cards in the Card Pool.

The game features 21 different inventions that allow players to evolve diverse strategies, capitalizing on their tribe's individual strengths. There are challenging decisions every turn as players must evaluate what resources are available, guess what their opponents will do, and weigh the amount of risk they're willing to take.

This is an overlooked game AND hard to find. You start out with a small tribe and you must gather food, hunt dinosaurs, recruit new tribe people and try to create fire. The game play is similar to Rio Grande's other game Stone Age. Think of it as once fire is discovered(in Cavemen), agriculture/trade and other resource gathering becomes available(in Stone Age). That is why it's a great filler before playing Stone Age.

I also love the art on the cards. The 3D claymation look is amazing! The chits are sturdy too. The teeth(used for currency) are marked with 1 line for small and 5 lines on large teeth to show value. Same with meat to feed the tribe. A festering green 1 is on the small drumstick and a bloody 5 on large. First time I played, it took a while for me to notice the 1's & 5's on the meat for they blend well with the design.

Some of the rules I had to reread a few times. It can be slightly confusing at first but once you play the game, it all makes sense. Highly Recommend!

Like Stone Age lite. We were able to sort out the rules and fit in a few rounds of this game on the day it was opened.
