The time has come for the tribe to leave its shelter and head for new lands. As the chief of your clan, it’s up to you to guide your prehistoric people through the valley: Take advantage of the environment, pick and hunt for food, discover big and safe caverns for the upcoming winter, gather your tribe and discover the valley!


Sapiens is a short and easy-to-learn tile-placement game that can prove much deeper then it seems for gamers. Each player has a personal game board that represents the valley on which they will play tiles to determine the journey of their tribe through several prehistoric life scenes. Their aim is to gather food points on the plains and in the forests of the valley and to get shelter points for reaching caves in the mountains.
