For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

In this game, you're the tribe-leader of a group of cavemen, and must play through different scenarios, all based on the migration of your people from one area to another. The game takes place on a hex-board, and each turn you decide whether to train with spears (as well as build new ones), hunt, build statues to your animal-gods for luck in hunting, rest, or move to a new hex. The game is filled with silly characters who'll get into problems that you must sort out along the way (the tougher the scenario you pick, the more often these things happen). When they do, you'll need to make a choice about how to fix things up based upon what you feel is best for the tribe. This is supposed to teach decision-making skills to young people about 'seeing things from other viewpoints', and operating in far-sightedness -- but it's not preachy or even predictable (sometimes).

Looks identical to the Apple IIGS version of this game. Frustratingly difficult I found. - You could only play the leader of the tribe in the game and the rest of the tribe always seemed to get peeved at you & rebelled, no matter what you tried in order to get to the end of the game...
