Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition
« on: August 12, 2018, 10:39:21 AM »
According to a twitter post from Dice Tower at GenCon, Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition is coming out! The Box says Limited Edition, and the display tag Release Date: Late 2018.
Right next to Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition sits Carcassonne: Safari with the same estimated release.

Here is a twitch video of GenCon and at approx. 4:35:00 Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition is featured.

In the video, He asked the guy at the booth about the differences between Standard and Anniversary.

-The Game Board is double sided (Original/Winter Theme)
-Winter Theme Version has additional game play/variants
-upgraded components - more detail on meeples/cavemen and other game components

It does not seem to include The Expansion (Style is the Goal), The Casinos, or The Mammoth Herd.

In this case I hope they release a 10th Anniversary Edition of The Expansion (Style is the Goal) with a double sided board (Original/Winter Theme) as well.

BoardGameGeek has the original post where people are talking about it.

I personally love Stone Age and I have The Casinos and The Mammoth Herd Expansions, but not Stone Age:The Expansion (Style is the Goal).

I saw the BGG post and some of the video content.

Being a big fan of the game I'm interested in this edition and think it is a nice idea!. My wife and I play with all mini expansions in, including the latest Mammoth and the larger 'Style' expansion. I would hope and assume that these expansion bits fit into the anniversary edition game design.

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

Stone Age - Anniversary Edition now on pre-sale at Spiele-Offensive.de for €56.99

Google Translate to English:
The familiar family game STONE AGE is 10 years old. On the occasion of this anniversary, this limited and revised edition will be published. The game includes the well-known summer version and a winter version, which is played with a variant. There are also two mini-extensions "The Wild Animals" and "The Igloos". Start an exciting journey into the past. Truly hard were the times when our ancestors still walked bent behind the wooden plow. But progress was not stopped even then. Good tools and high-yielding plants made work easier and life enjoyable.



From the images it appears that the Board, Player Boards and the Huts are double-sided with the winter art on the other side. The cards look the same. The Food Tokens are no longer disks, but have new fancy shapes. I can't tell if the Meeples are any different other than shades of color. We will have to wait and see what the Winter Variant and the two mini-extensions "The Wild Animals" and "The Igloos" are.

Mikeagan, thanks for posting.

This pull out quote is the most intriguing, "... new options for playing in the bitter cold of winter".

I shouldn't really be that interested in the release already having everything released to date but for the love of the game I am sorely tempted  ;D

Overall this is great news for anyone looking to get into the game. In regards to the price, sadly, it seems to be in-line or nearly on par with many new releases, (especially where Zman and Asmodee is concerned).

Estimated Release Date: December 2018.

I plan on selling my Standard Edition of Stone Age once I receive the Anniversary Edition. I've only owned it for a few Months (March 2018) and it is in Excellent Condition.

Ciao Aenima, le regole ufficiali della versione inglese non sono ancora state pubblicate da Z-Man, per cui mi limito a tradurti in sintesi le poche novità della versione invernale.
1. quando acquisisci un edificio il cui costo è dato, puoi decidere di aggiungere ai materiali richiesti anche una pietra e ottenere i relativi 5 punti in più; analogamente, quando acquisisci una civilization card puoi aggiungere al numero di materiali necessari per acquisirla anche un lingotto d'oro ed ottenere oltre alla carta, i 6 punti dell'oro;
2. wild animal card: vanno mescolate con le altre civilization card, ma solo dopo aver piazzato le prime quattro sul tabellone (non ci può essere una di queste carte nel primo round); all'inizio dei turni successivi, al momento di riempire gli spazi rimasti liberi potrebbe apparire una di queste carte: in tal caso la si mette da parte e si continua a riempire gli spazi rimasti; da questo turno la wild animal card entra in gioco e finché non viene eliminata, ogni giocatore nel lancio dei dadi partirà con l'handicap indicato sulla carta (-1, -2 o -3) indipendentemente dal numero di dadi lanciati; per eliminare la carta e il relativo malus è necessario riempire gli spazi sulla carta con tanti lavoratori quanti sono i giocatori (quindi da 2 a 4 spazi a seconda del numero di giocatori): nella fase di piazzamento ognuno al proprio turno può posizionare un lavoratore (solo uno) su questa carta; tuttavia, se al turno successivo è rimasto almeno uno spazio libero, il giocatore potrà piazzarvi un secondo lavoratore (si tratta chiaramente di una deroga alla regola generale di piazzamento di questo gioco); una volta terminato il piazzamento di tutti i lavoratori, prima della fase 2, si controlla se ci sono ancora spazi liberi su questa carta: se ce ne sono, la carta resta in gioco con il relativo malus e i lavoratori piazzati su quella carta rimarranno imprigionati fino al prossimo round (unico vantaggio: non dovranno essere sfamati nella fase 3); se invece tutti gli spazi sono occupati, la carta viene eliminata e con essa il suo effetto negativo e i giocatori tireranno i dadi per ottenere la relativa ricompensa (un dado per ogni lavoratore presente sulla carta) indicata sulla carta stessa (qualunque valore del dado si ottenga, si può sempre decidere di scambiare quella ricompensa con 3 punti vittoria);
3. gli igloo: si piazzano a fianco del tabellone; si tratta semplicemente di edifici che possono essere acquisiti in ogni momento in alternativa agli edifici classici; ovviamente una volta acquisiti, tali edifici non sono più disponibili, ma il gioco prosegue normalmente; nel calcolo finale dei moltiplicatori degli edifici, gli igloo NON contano

Translation from google:
Hello Aenima, the official rules of the English version have not yet been published by Z-Man, so I limit myself to briefly translate the few innovations of the winter version.
1. when you acquire a building whose cost is given, you can decide to add a stone to the required materials and get the relative 5 points more; similarly, when you acquire a civilization card, you can add a gold bar to the number of materials needed to acquire it, and get 6 gold points in addition to the card;
2. wild animal cards: they must be mixed with the other civilization cards, but only after having placed the first four on the board (there can not be one of these cards in the first round); at the beginning of the next rounds, when one of the spaces left free could fill up, one of these cards might appear: in this case, one puts it aside and continues to fill the remaining spaces; from this turn the wild animal card enters the game and until it is eliminated, each player in the dice roll will start with the handicap indicated on the card (-1, -2 or -3) regardless of the number of dice thrown; to eliminate the card and its malus it is necessary to fill the spaces on the card with as many workers as there are players (therefore 2 to 4 spaces depending on the number of players): in the placement phase everyone on their turn can place a worker ( only one) on this card; however, if at least one free space is left in the next round, the player can place a second worker there (this is clearly an exception to the general rule of placing this game); once the placement of all the workers is finished, before phase 2, it is checked if there are still free spaces on this card: if there are any, the card remains in play with the relative malus and the workers placed on that card will remain imprisoned until at the next round (only advantage: they will not have to be fed in phase 3); if instead all the spaces are occupied, the card is eliminated and with it its negative effect and the players will roll the dice to get the relative reward (one die for each worker present on the card) indicated on the card itself (any value of the die is obtained , you can always decide to exchange that reward with 3 victory points);
3. the igloos: they are placed next to the board; these are simply buildings that can be acquired at any time as an alternative to classical buildings; obviously once acquired, these buildings are no longer available, but the game continues normally; in the final calculation of the multipliers of buildings, the igloos do NOT count

ZMAN has updated the Stone Age Anniversary product page. I emailed ZMAN about their Upcoming Games Page needing an update and they did so. I also asked about more news on the anniversary edition.

They replied “An article about Stone Age Anniversary edition will be up soon to show off more of the differences so keep an eye out!”
