In Stone Age, players are leaders of tribes, and must allocate their tribe members into various jobs to keep the tribe running. Some collect wood, work in the quarry, wash gold from the river, trade, or hunt. The goal is to produce enough resources, and food to keep their population fed.
Stone Age Anniversary has the tribes facing winter. They must now insulate buildings for warmth, gather resources, and store food to avoid starvation. It includes a double-sided board, upgraded components, and new options for playing in the winter. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 60 – 90 minutes. MSRP is $79.99. Release is planned for Q4.
