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 important 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!

Easy to learn and quick to teach
Stone Age is a great introductory game into the worker placement category. Its easy to learn and teach to new players, however it still has a surprising amount of depth for more advanced players. The dice add just enough of a random element to where strategies will often need to be adjusted on the fly, but not so much that it feels at all like a luck based game. There are limited spaces for placement, so you also get that element of anticipating what other players will need, and then the satisfaction that comes from blocking them from accomplishing it :)

This game was my first introduction into the worker placement genre, and I still find myself wanting to bring it out whenever I can.

My pick for best overall board game
Stone Age is the best board game I've ever played. Worker placement mechanic, very little bookkeeping, some dice rolling but with ways to skew things in your favor. Overall it's easy to teach with multiple paths to victory for lots of replayability. The components are great. My only complaint is that the food is cardboard discs when everything else is wood.

Great 2-4 player with no gaps!
I've mostly played this as a duel with my wife, but enjoyed every player count equally. The game stays tight without being brutal for new players. The game length scales well once players get the habit of the turn down.

I've had the good fortune to never play with anyone who wanted to run the "starvation" strategy, and for that I'm glad. The flavor, even in such a relatively simple game, is strong enough to discourage winning at any cost.

A great time that keeps making it back to the table!

A good worker placement
Pretty straight forward worker placement game without many twists. If you are into worker placements and want to get others into them then this is a great go to game.

Gateway to worker-placement!
This is an extremely fun game that can introduce any gamer or in-game to the worker placement mechanics. Collect your recourse, build your huts and enjoy the table talk that will glow around this game.

Worker placement with a unique theme
I tend to like worker placement games, and this one was one of the first I ever played. There are others I bring out more often now, but I will never put up a fight if others pick this one. The theme really comes through, and there are lots of different successful winning strategies. Good fun.

Essential for any gamer's collection.
It's hard to describe how satisfying Stone age is to play. While a lot of dice rolling results in a game that has a large component of luck, true strategy plays can still find ways to win consistently. Players assign their tribe members to various different tasks and then roll dice to see if they gain the rewards or not. This surprisingly simple game takes on a surprisingly level of complexity from the sheer number of options players have to send their workers out to do. The rule book is a little complicated, but once you figure out how to play (and it really doesn't take that long) everything else becomes immediately intuitive. One of the best things about this game is that there is very rarely blow outs where one player dominates the field. The winner is very often decided in the last couple rounds of play. Great with friends. Great with families. This is just simply a great game.

Great introduction to worker placement
This game is still good. This isn't for the hardcore gamers, but more for those who are dipping their toes into the worker placement genre. My girlfriend isn't a hardcore-board-gamer. But she loves this game! She highly prefers it over Settlers of Catan (Unless we play Cities & Knights).

The gameplay is a typical worker placement game (cutthroat for limited spaces). It involves basic mathematics (Division required), and it is great with families because of the mathematics nature of the game.
