Customer Review

on September 23, 2009
Stone Age has been one of the most playable and engrossing games in my collection. The rules are relatively simple. I can usually get non-gamers to play it. Almost every time we play I end up looking at my watch after the game and wondering where the time went. This is truly a great game.

Stone Age is a European-Type, worker placement game. In Stone Age, each player has a tribe of villagers that need resources like food and building material. The goal of the game is to accumulate resources with which each tribe can purchase buildings and valuable cards. The trick is to allocate resources wisely to get the most points. Sounds dull right? But this game is so beautifully designed, it really works.

The game board is a work of art and draws players into a prehistoric scene. Likewise the game comes with fo-bone dice and a leather cup (sturdy, yet crudely stitched like one would find in the stone age. All of these little touches tends to make even non-gamers enjoy the game. Our game group plays this allot. Each time the dice are rolled, everyone chants "oo-ka-la-ka, oo-ka-la-ka" until the dice are thrown. When you can get 4 aging hippies to chant "oo-ka-la-ka" you know you've got a good theme going.

This game is quite similar to "Pillars of the Earth" though not quite as complex.
