Description Edit | History

The "Stone Age" times were hard indeed. In their roles as hunters, collectors, farmers, and tool makers, our ancestors worked with their legs and backs straining against wooden plows in the stony earth. Of course, progress did not stop with the wooden plow. People always searched for better tools and more productive plants to make their work more effective.

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.

1 3d print your own start player marker
If you have a 3d printer, I've attached an STL file that can be printed to produce a cave man model that can be used as a replacement start player marker. More details can be found on my thingiverse post. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:714902.

5 Stone Age Score Sheet - B&W (Adapted from Sungarden3's)
I adapted Sungarden3's score sheet in order to get a more printer friendly B&W version. Added a "color" and "name" field instead of using colored bars because this way you can use one sheet for 2x2-player games. Also moved the score totals right below the players' header because I think it'll be easier to sort out which total belongs to whom.

11 Stone Age Reminders.pdf
Once, when teaching Lancaster after not having played it in ages, I made a critical error that I didn’t discover until after the game. I said never again and since then I make a “Reminders” sheet for all of my games. The intent was not to cover all the rules but to make note of those little things that can be forgotten. Most of the Reminders start with the set-up and ends with the end of game conditions and scoring. I print them on cardstock and trim away the excess, making an easy to use sheet. They are also a good framework to use when teaching the games. If you click on my user name, then click on Contributions, then go down to Files you can check out my Reminders for all of my games. Enjoy.
