The times of the "Stone Age" were really tough. In their roles as hunters, collectors, farmers and tool makers, our ancestors worked their legs and backs against wooden plows in the stony earth. Of course, the progress didn't stop with the wooden plow. People were always looking for better tools and more productive factories to make their jobs more efficient.
À Stone Age , the players live in this era, just like our ancestors. They collect wood, break stone and wash their gold from the river. They trade freely, expand their village and thus reach new levels of civilization. With a balance of luck and planning, players compete for food in this prehistoric time.
Players use up to ten tribal members each in three phases. In the first phase, players place their men in areas of the board that they believe will be of use to them, including the hunt, the mall, or the quarry. In the second phase, the first player activates each of their staffed zones in the order of their choice, followed in turn by the other players. In the third phase, players must have enough food to feed their populations, otherwise they risk losing resources or points.
