Timeline is a series of historic-based educational games. We had the chance to try both Inventions and Diversity (Multi-themes).
It’s a card game, with each card depicting a historical event, invention or discovery on both sides. However, the year that they occurred, or discovered, is shown only on one side. You start the game with a hand of cards, and one card with its date revealed, in the middle of the table. Throughout the game, you will create a row, a Timeline, according to the date on each card.
On your turn, you have to choose one of your cards and place it in the correct position in the Timeline, among other cards. The twist, of course, is that you get to reveal your card’s date only after you guess its place on the Timeline! In case you are incorrect, you discard the card, drawing a new one. The first player to place all his cards on the Timeline is the winner of the game.
