Played Stone Age again this weekend after a year or two hiatus and I sure do enjoy the gameplay. The die-rolling is loads of fun and the rseource-collecting and buying is fun, too. Like a very light 'Gric.
HOWEVER (and notice this is a big however), our game with two beginners who caught on really quick took two and a half frigging hours! This game is TOO long. I remember posting this in a review on BGG awhile back and people not-so-politely commenting that perhaps we were playing under the influence a of certain drug. They claimed 30-45 minutes is possible for a game. Really? Prove it.
It's too bad because I really enjoy Stone Age but it's way too light to last as long as a game of Age of Steam. Anyone else found this?
