We have both the English (Z-Man Games) and German (Hans im Gluck) editions of Stone Age. Please select the version you want. English rules will be provided either way. See note below.
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 be able to nourish the growing population.
In Stone Age, the goal of the players is to master all these challenges. There are many ways to do so, so everyone can work to achieve his goal in his own way. Find your own way and learn at the end whether it was the best way.
In Stone Age, players struggle to survive the Stone Age by working as hunters, collectors, farmers, and tool makers. As you gather resources, and raise animals, you work to build the tools needed to build your civilization.
Players use up to 10 tribe members each in 3 phases. 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 face losing resources or points.
Contents: 1 game board, 4 player boards, 58 wooden resources (wood, brick, stone and gold), 40 wooden figures (10 in each of 4 player colors: red, yellow, green, blue), 8 wooden markers (1 field & 1 scoring in each of 4 player colors), 53 food supply tiles, 28 hut tiles, 18 tool tiles, 1 start player figure, 36 civilization cards, 7 six-sided dice, 1 leather dice cup, 1 rule booklet.
