Fabulous caves containing the artistic legacy or our ancient ancestors were discovered in a cave complex at Lascaux in the southwest of France. In testament to their struggle for survival, our forefathers created these stunning images that capture your imagination. Fantastic paintings of large animals long extinct leap from the walls of these caves--animals known only from fossils and seen only in dreams.

In the game Lascaux, you try to win majorities of animal cards by spending stones at the right moment and cleverly outfoxing other players. Explore the meeting of art and history, in the caves of Lascaux!

“good family game that grows on you”

This is a great game to teach kids and non-gamers. The rules are simple – flip a few artwork cards over, decide which color you want to go after in the current round, then keep throwing stones into the pot as long as you think you can afford to.

Pros:
1) simple yet fun
2) family-friendly
3) short duration game is a great time-filler between more serious fare

Cons:
1) limited strategic challenge, even with experienced players
2) serious gamers will get bored with this quickly

I find the mechanics of the game to be a little quirky, but they are simple to understand and rather seamless once you get the hang of the auction. Definitely worth the 30 bucks if you’re looking for something to play with the kids or casual gamers.
