CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Get in touch with your roots with Stone Age from Rio Grande Games. Each age has its special challenges. The Stone Age was shaped by the emergence of agriculture, the processing of useful resources and by the building of simple huts. Trade begins and grows and civilization takes root and spreads. In addition, traditional abilities like skillful hunting are in demand, in order to nourish the growing population. The goal of each player is to master these challenges. There are many ways to do so, so everyone can work to achieve his goal in his own way. Deploy workers, hunt, gather, farm and develop tools when and in the numbers you feel necessary. Make strategic decisions and capitalize on rare opportunities before your opponents! Find your own way and learn at the end whether it was best!
The times were hard indeed. Our ancestors worked with their legs and backs straining against wooden plows in the stony earth. Of course, progress did not stop with the wooden plow. People always searched for better tools and more productive plants to make their work more effective. In stone age, the players live in this time, just as our ancestors did. They collect wood, break stone and wash their gold from the river. They trade freely, expand their village and so achieve new levels of civilization. With a balance of luck and planning, the players compete for food in this pre-historic time. Risk and grow as your ancestors did. Only then the victory ring sings to you. For 2-4 players. Takes about 90 minutes to play. Tons of replay value.

My wife and I really love this game. We've probably played it over twenty times by now so I'd say the replay value is pretty high for us. Read morePublished 20 months ago by W. Giant
Reasonably fun, but in the group of myself and two older kids that tried it with me, all of us agreed it wasn't one we liked well enough to play it a lot. Read morePublished 23 months ago by John W. Robertson
