Stone Age is a great worker placement game for those who have not played worker placement games. There is a balance between the strategy of placing the workers and the luck of the dice rolls. Workers can be placed on a resource determines the number of dice a player rolls. The roll of the dice determines the number of resources gained. Feeding the workers is necessary after each turn. Food can be gained by either direct worker placement or gambling on the roll of the dice. Points can be rolled up during the game by buying buildings. The big scores come at the end of the game when various characters from the civilization cards are matched up with objects collected during the game. The number of builders is multiplied by the number of buildings, shaman are multiplied by the number of workers, etc.

We have an open copy of Stone Age available in our Demo Games Library for you come in and try.
