Guide your civilisation through the era of primitive tools and resource gathering and trading in Stone Age, a fantastic and addictive worker placement game.
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.
Players use up to ten tribe members each in three phases. In the first phase, players place their men in regions of the board that they think will benefit them, including the hunt, the trading center, or the quarry. In the second phase, the starting player activates each of his staffed areas in whatever sequence he chooses, followed in turn by the other players. In the third phase, players must have enough food available to feed their populations, or they face losing resources or points.
Named after the period of time in which the game is set, Stone Age is a dice-based worker placement game that features all of the events of the era: the building of tools, the gathering of food, and the extraction of some of the planet’s natural, such as wood, clay, and gold.
An addictive game that should suit both experienced gamers and newcomers alike, Stone Age will be a great addition to almost any games collection.
