According to the box text, the cradle of modern humans, called "Homo Sapiens” by scientists, was located in Africa more than 100,000 years ago. The first branches of this family began a journey that spanned thousands of years, eventually leading them to Australia and America. The enormous difficulties of this journey could only be overcome because of Homo sapiens’ unique ability to adapt to its environment. Their highly developed brains and their mastery of crafts enabled them master even the harshest conditions.

In this exciting game, you will guide the journey of one of these branches. You must struggle to spread your people over the whole world. In order to expand your branch of humanity you must develop certain talents: advances in the preparation of food will allow your people to spread faster and wider, while new hunting techniques can protect them from dangers. And your people will need warm clothes to cross the ice deserts of the north and boats to settle in Australia.

This game has many similarities to Settlers of Catan (the way resource production is handled is the most obvious) but it also has many differences. For instance, the board is a fixed map of the globe, not a randomly generated island, the paths to victory points are quite different and there are no roads to divide up the territory and block other people's progress. Also, in this game, your settlements (called camps) must migrate out of Africa in order to remain productive. In some ways this is a slightly simpler game, the rules are certainly shorter and more clearly written, but it still offers a large amount of depth and strategy.

This is definitely a worthy addition to the Settlers collection.
