|This is what the game looks like|
It's one of the Catan series, called The Settlers of the Stone Age, that operates much like the other Catan games except for resources you trade bone, meat, flint and hide instead of food, fuel and coal as you set up camp from here to there.
We remember it as fun and don't know why it got pushed to the back of the closet except that we like a lot of games so we're always trying out something new.
So it was with a shock that we prepared to play this game last Sunday night and found the rules missing.
|Here's the game board|
No way particularly since Marc is a stickler for the rules.
We decided to try the wonderful resources available on the Internet and see if we could buy, beg or borrow a copy.
I wrote to Mayfair Games where the Klaus Teuber games are made and sold.
They very nicely told me the Stone Age game was made in cooperation with another company that hadn't granted them access to the rules PDF file.
|These we have|
Marc decided to write to Kosmos in Germany and get the truth out of them.
Here's their reply: (I'm not sure they can help us.)
