Thinking of buying an easy worker placement game. Which one is the better game?

by better, i mean:
- more fun and laidback atmosphere during session.
- better strategy
- easier to learn and teach
- play faster
- prettier components
- theme that makes better sense

my initial impression of Stone Age:
- pretty graphic for an old eurogame. they usually look horrible.
- interesting theme that's accessible to all kinds of people
- it has dice rolling within the game. I like rolling dice.

my initial impression of Lords of Waterdeep:
- very relatable theme. we're ex-dnd players and revisiting Waterdeep will induce some nice memories.
- cubes as adventurers? so.. all these time.. we're all just a cube? :/
- I'm afraid that the geek nature of the theme will shun people from trying.

+1 waterdeep, shun people of trying? it was never in my case. well mostly karena temen gw gamer semua jadi waterdeep gampang masuknya mereka. kayaknya daripada stone age waterdeep juga lebih family friendly loh,

gw ga bisa kebayang ngejelasin 'love shack' ke family gw klo suatu saat ngajak maen stone age bareng

Gw blm pernah maen low, tp kalau stone age cukup sering.. Kelemahannya cuma too long for what it is... Kalo maen ber-4 bisa lama sekali...

And also luck of the dice!
+1 on LoW. Sama juga pendapat g dengan bro Ivan, g rasa walau LoW quite thematic, tp game mechanicnya not very dependent on the theme, which is very flexible.

Wah, masalah besar ini... kemungkinan besar ini gw maenin bareng non-gamer, jadi masalah waktu bener2 sensitif. Juga karena beberapa temen di grup ada yang ga suka game yg makan waktu. -1 for Stone Age

kalo gua sih suka ya.. hehe. Tadinya mo ngincer Seasons juga, tapi pas nonton video instructionalnya gw ga ngerti tu game tentang apaan...

Anyway, scoring so far:

LoW: 2
Stone Age: -1

I'm leaning towards LoW for now.

Any Stone Age fans here?

Nah karena lu main ama non gamer, LoW bisa jadi lebih cocok, karena menurut g, LoW is too simple for what it is. Maklum ekspektasi g wkt itu cukup besar. Hahaha, but nevertheless, it's a good game, 90 menit selesai.
Nah kl seasons itu lebih bagus menurut g, lebih ke engine building dan chain combo. :top:

klo bisa milih, Get SEASONS. gw pernah test ama non gamer, masuk2 aja tuh, dan rule nya gampang kok. and lumayan intense.
