Players struggle to survive the Stone Age by working as hunters, collectors, farmers, and tool makers. As you gather resources, enlarge your tribe, and build huts you work to gain victory points.

Players use up to 10 tribe members each in three phases. The first phase players place their people in regions of the board that they think will benefit them, including the hunt, the trading center, or the quarry. In the second phase, the starting player activates each staffed area in whatever sequence he chooses, followed in turn by each of the other players. In the third phase, players must have enough food available to feed their populations, or else lose resources or points.

Stone Age is a game where players take turns placing their meeples in various actions to accumulate food, resources, cards, special items, and victory point buildings. Once players have placed all their meeples, each player takes their turn, starting with the starting player, and use the actions where their meeples are placed. Then, each player feeds their meeples. This continues until either all cards or one building stack are gone. Then, final scoring, and winner is determined.

The top 16 players from three preliminary heats will advance to semi-finals using standard WBC HMW tie-breakers. Check the kiosk in the Paradise Terrace for alternate status.
