CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
The Dawn of Mankind. Our ancestors were hard workers,resting only very little. Luckily for us, their ingenuity allowed them to make their work easier, day after day. In Stone Age, players are sent back to that arduous period of history. With tools, quite archaic at first, you will be able to collect wood, stone and gold. These resources will allow you to attain higher levels of knowledge and build sturdier roofs over your head.Though luck plays an im- portant part in the game, only those who master their fate will be able to grasp victory. Finally, one mustn’t forget to feed their tribe as that would represent a major setback for them. Relive history!

After my wife got interested in gaming with me (she realized it could be fun after playing Tikal) I started looking for more games that we could play together, which could be fun with only two people. After a lot of research I settled on Stone Age.
We've played it several times together with just the two of us, and several more with our friends. Two-player games tend to be shorter, but give players more turns each. The four player games go a bit longer with fewer turns per person. This makes it necessary to strategize differently based on the number of players. For this reason, the game has tons of replay value.
Even if you can only play with one other person, you'll want to pull Stone Age out often. But if you have friends to join you, this game will be on the table a lot.
Bottom Line: My wife and I really enjoy playing this together, and adding friends makes for a new and interesting challenge. Highly recommended!
Game takes about 60 minutes with 3 people playing.
Overall, just not that interesting of a game for me. We've played with 2 people and with 3 people.
If you like Ticket to Ride, you'll probably like this. However, Ticket to Ride does have more defensive options than Stone Age.
Our absolute favorite Euro style game is 'Five Tribes' (especially with the explansion!). Before Five Tribes, our favorite game was the old standby of Settlers.
This game just isn't quite as interactive with the other players as other euro style games that we prefer.
I don't think it will have a lot of replay value for us.
This is a worker placement game and the mechanic is very simple, you need to gather resorces by placing your workers on different areas of the board and the amount of resources you get is bases on a dice roll. The more workers you use for one resource, the more probability you have of gathering several of such resource. Resources are used to build houses and adquire cards. Once the round ends. You pay food acoording to the number of workers you have.
The reason I love this game, is beacuse it is very simple to learn and has many different strategies for making points so depending on your opponents actions you may need to adjust your strategy. Also playing with 4 players is the best experience because it is harder to get the things you want as everybody is trying to get the same things. It can also be played with two players and it becomes a eace for the most points.
I certainly recommend it!
Not sure if I'm supposed to rate the gameplay here or the packaging/shipment/quality?
Everything about this was great though!
The game itself has so much replay value; I only wish I could play with more than four people. But I see how that could make things super crowded and complicated, so I'm not even complaining.
The game comes with everything you need to play(obviously) AND MORE.
The designers definitely know how to cater to their players. On top of all the required parts, they included a little divider for separating the game box into four compartments for easy sorting/keeping things neat in the box; a cup for dice rolling(my favorite part of everything that was included); and a roll of plastic baggies for putting away all the different colored pieces and resource blocks!
The game got here faster than expected, and it was shipped with a couple of other things I had ordered. Everything fit nicely into one box and didn't make me worried about broken parts or anything.
Just buy it - you won't regret it. It is one of my favorites.
If you played any game like Agricola, Puerto Rico, or are a fan of Catan or even Carcassonne then you will enjoy Stone Age. It combines a lot of the game mechanics from each of those games.
My only complaint is it is restricted to 4 players: Our group when we get together normally has 5 or 6 so we tend to push Stone Age to the side... ;o(
