Ok so stone age is the intro game that has got me into the world of boardgames. I just purchased Puertorico and its still sealed. Wooohoooo!
Anyway....tonights gaming night and I think I have been playing stone age wrong all along!!! AAAAHHH the shame.
OK so the question is four players at the table first player is red and has the chief figure. The way iv been playing is chief goes first and places all 5 of his meeples at one go a distributes them across the board to his liking or needs, the 2nd player blue goes and places ALL his blues across the board and so on and so forth.....

You can only place meeples at one location at a time. So you can place meeples in wood, or at the love hut, or one on a resource card. Then the other players go. Then you can place again.

Also important to remember that if you place on a resource area (hunting, lumber, clay, stone or gold) that you have to place all the workers you want there in one go. For example, you cannot place 2 in lumber on one of your turns, then come back and place more in lumber on another turn.

Game on!

The game should be much more competitive following these rules. It's a favorite of mine--enjoy!

Let's check the rules a moment (my highlighting).

The start player begins and must place 1 or more of his people on one place of his choice. Then the next player in clockwise order follows and must also place 1 or more of his people on one place of his choice.This continues in clockwise order until all players have placed all their people on the game board.

And just to clarify the above...

Each hut is considered a different place. Each card is considered a different place.
