The Dice Section 37: Stone Age

Reading Time: 1 minute

Stone Age board game

If you like tabletop games and you’re looking for an in-depth review of the latest and greatest offerings, you’ll love the Dice Section podcast. Hosts Michael Harrison, Dave Kirby, and Geoff Morochnick spend a whole month playing a single game over and over again, probably more than is healthy, and then record their thoughts on how it held up. It’s not a shallow overview… it’s a deep and gory Dice Section.

In this episode, the guys head back to prehistoric times with Stone Age from Hans Im Glück and Rio Grande Games. Theme aside (cavemen, huts, etc.), this game isn’t exactly bleeding edge. Published nearly a decade ago when the hobby board game market was a very different place, somehow it escaped both Dave’s and Michael’s attentions. Advantage: Geoff.

Stone Age was designed by Bernd Brunnhofer (a.k.a., Michael Tummelhofer) with art by Michael Menzel.

Lesson of the week? If this hut’s a-rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’.
