I played this four times at the 2008 Gathering of Friends and purchased it the same week (which says something, since I purchase games very selectively these days). I found Stone Age to be quite engaging. I tend to rank games that really grab me a bit low with the intention of bumping up the rating if the title stands up to the test of time. I think Stone Age may merit being bumped up to a "9" rating and a spot in the ranks of elite games in my collection ... if the large swings in luck inherent in all dice games don't someday sour my in ititial, very favorable reaction. Note: After many, many plays of Stone Age, it hasn't lost any of its luster. Rating bumped up to 9, making this one of the elite games in my collection. Update ... now one of fewer than 20 games out of 900 I've rated that scores a 10. However, I've found some averaging dice (with the numbers 2-3-3-4-4-5) that I use with Stone Age to smooth out the luck, which can unbalance the game at times.

Wife says that this is her favorite longer than 1 hour game. I agree! Plays great with two and I anticipate it will be even better with three or four.

Have played 5 games now, 2P and 3P with kids, (8 & 12). Kids picked it up quickly and my 12 yr old LOVES to play it. 2P games ran less than an hour, the 3P, just over.
Don't see a problem with resources running out, that would be a hoarding problem. Good quality, pretty game. I'll play it whenever, who will set it up? 11/08
****01/2011***okay, had to bump this up to a 10. It is my daughters favorite game to play now, and she usually wins. Still love how easily it plays and flows. Don't have to learn rules all over each time. Have never felt the game plays itself, too many choices to make on your turn.

It has all of the pros of middle-weight euro. Perfect game to play with your family or non gamer friends without suffering from chaos, randomness and all of that stuff witch gamer doesn't like. One of my absolute favorites, evergreen.

This game packs alot of fun within 60 minutes! I love the combination of set-collecting, dice rolling and worker placement. It's also easy to teach to non-gamers. Every non-gamer I've introduced this to says that it's fun and not too difficult to play - that's a big thumbs up I'd say!

Lovely resource-management / worker-placement game. Simple enough to appeal to non-gamers, but still has the edge that makes it fun. Probably better on BSW, as the actual game is quite fiddly. Think I became too good at it, but now that I haven't played in a while, I am back with the pack.

This game is a clear 10 for me in its online BSW format (and I don't make this statement lightly - check my ratings). In person I would give it a 9 or 8 because it is a bit too slow for frequent in person play. At half an hour the game is the best yet created (for my taste) - at 90 minutes it is also good but there are many games I would choose first. Since it is available online and I have learned so much from the game I am finally going to give it a 10 (it was only a 6 after my first four plays).

What I love about the game is that every decision is interesting and fast. The probability elements are perfectly implemented. It is clearly a game of skill - a few people have played hundreds of 3 player games with win rates of 80%, and yet average players can share a table with very good ones and have a chance at winning. Contrary to many comments I have read I am certain that it is a very deep game - I am still experimenting and learning new things. The game is fantastic for 2 or 3 players - 4 player has fewer interesting decisions and a lot more downtime but is still playable.

first play - 4 players - This was a ton of fun. I loved all the choices you had each round. The dice rolling and cards that came up added a welcome dose of randomness to the game. I came in second becasue I put too much stock into the tools early on when I should have been concentrating on making more meeples and farms. I was one artifact short of the full set which still would have had me in second but only by a slim margin. I'm looking forward to my next play of this one.
