The Timeline series of games are based around placing cards in the date order that you think is correct. To begin, one card is randomly drawn from those not given to players. This is placed in the middle of the table, date-side up and is the starting point of a chronological line which will slowly be built by players. The first player then chooses one of their cards and place it before or after the initial card. The player’s card is then turned date-side up. If the player was right, it remains on the table. Otherwise, the card is discarded and a new one must be drawn to replace it. Play proceeds clockwise. The more cards which are correctly played, the harder it is to correctly place new ones! You can play with one set of cards or mix things up with cards from other themed packs.
The first player to get rid of their cards wins. 2-8 players from age 8 and up, takes 15 minutes.
Our tip: A good game for the pub, see how many of your friends can insert cards into the timeline in the correct sequence. Educational and has good replay value (it’s very hard to remember the exact dates of everything even if you have seen the cards a few times). Mixing in cards from other decks adds variety too.
