125) Stone Age

I can't believe its taken me this long to play this game! This is a classic worker placement game where you're gathering resources, buying cards and buildings (huts) to gather in-game and end-game points. Just don't forget to feed your people at the end of each round.

This is a great game that I highly recommend playing. It has just the right amount of planning ahead, being preparing for future turns, and tension with other players potentially taking the spot you wanted. The one issue some people have with the game is there is a starvation strategy in which you choose to lose points each turn by not feeding your people. If done correctly, the benefit of not having to use workers to get food every few turns pays off in your ability to gather more of everything else. I love this strategy as it adds a new twist to the game, but it doesn't lend itself to the overall theme of the game. Regardless of this the game is amazing, and despite having dice, I still love this game so give it a try if you haven't already.
