There is a lot going on in this game but it is very easy to formulate your own strategy and go to it. The dice rolling mechanic in this game is very unique and works perfect as far as luck vs strategy.

This game is an excellent social game, it takes a while to play but when it is not your turn there is plenty of conversation time.

This game plays very smoothly after 1 play through. Some of the strategies and complexities take a bit to work out but once familiar this game thrives.

The added strategy of how “early do I make my workers work” as well as the funny element of, earlier makes them unhappy, works very well. Most worker placement games have a place to be the first player, this game incorporates that into your strategy as well as staying true to the theme here.

There are 3 seperate mini-expansions included with the game which all enhance the gameplay as well as replayability, while being easily ommitted to begin with while learning the game.

There is even a great learning opportunity here for the children, with the color wheel coming fully into play.

Overall, you need to give this game a good effort but you will not be dissappointed if you do so.

Bought this game as an introduction to strategy gaming for my 8 and 11 year old daughters. It worked perfectly. There is a fair amount of strategy to keep gamers interested, and the fruit pieces are gorgeous! The pieces really make the game for the children, they are bright, fun and very unique.

The play strategy is really individual and never conflicting, yet all moves affect other players. If you have any aspirations of starting out your children as gamers or like to play games as a family, this game is perfect for that.

Stone Age: Style is the Goal, is the name of the expansion. Only have 2 plays of it, but both were 5 players. I really enjoyed the strategy involved in the new resource of jewelry. This also adds a “barter” system to come up with those few distinct resources needed.

I am not entirely sure the amount of effort put into aquiring the jewelry is worth it at this point, but one of our winners went after it pretty strong in one game. This game is very enjoyable, and offers enough strategy, moreso now with the added expansion. I have played multiple games with my wife and 11 year old daughter with fun results. It seemed just a bit too much for my 8 year old to pick up at this time.
