Test your knowledge!
Timeline Classic asks you to remember when things happened in a whole range of categories. Was the pencil invented before Washington crossed the Delaware? And was 20000 Leagues Under the Sea written before or after Frankenstien? Before or after the invention of the pencil?
Each card has a different event/invention/discovery on it, with the date on only one side. Gameplay starts with a randomly drawn card in the middle of the table to form the timeline. On your turn, place a card in your hand before or after the card on the table, date side down. Once you’ve placed your card, turn it over to reveal the date. Did you get it in the right place on the Timeline?
If yes, it’s the next player’s turn. If no, you have to take the card back! First player to get rid of all their cards wins!
PS: Because of the wide scope of events and happenings covered in the Timeline games, we think they’re better for 10 and up. Most 8 year olds won’t have learned about the events on the cards yet.
PPS: You can play with more players if you divide into teams.
