Age: 12+
Playing time: 60 minutes

With this new game, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the predecessor „Funkenschlag“.
Each player is the leader of a clan trying to survive during the Stone Age. The clans try to improve their abilities as hunters and gatherers with the help of different novel hunting weapons like fishing rods or
spears. With additional food, they are able to spread out and increase their numbers. They also need to discover different innovative technologies, so that they learn to control fire, or speech, or even increase their intelligence to have better chances to survive. The players start as pure hunters and gatherers and need to keep track on new developments such as agriculture. The player with a fully developed clan size will win this game.

Idea of the game
