Quick Summary
spacerPlayers build a prehistoric landscape with tiles depicting forests, rivers, lakes and grasslands. Choose a randomly selected face-down tile and add it to the landscape, matching feartures at each edge. Then place a member or village of your tribe on the tile you played if you wish to hunt, gather, and fish. Hunters go on meadows and score points for game. Fishermen score for fish in lakes when a river is completed, and Gatherers score for the size of completed forests. Villages score for a complete water network at the conclusion of the game..
spacerThe rules are simple but there are a lot of decisions to make about placement of members of your tribe. It's also fun to see the landscape expand and evolve over the course of the game as you try to create space and resources for your tribe. The quality of game parts is outstanding with thick tiles and bright wooden playing pieces. The four-page rules are accompanied by many illustrations. Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers is another fine German game brought to the market by the American company Rio Grande Games.
