"Easy to learn, fun to play."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is such a simple game to learn but that doesn't mean it's a simple game… There's a challenge here for all ages as you try to work out what came before what and where it slots into the timeline, some will be obvious but some a little trickier to place. The added bonus is you'll learn some things you didn't know and it's a fun way to teach a little history to the kids.


JFK's assassi­nation, the 1st step on the moon, the last crusade … Can you put all these events correctly on the timeline?

Each player is dealt the same number of cards. At the start of the game, a card is drawn at random from the stack and is placed at the center of the table with the date showing. This is the starting point for a timeline that will be gradually completed by the players.

The first player then chooses one of his cards and places it before or after the card on the initial map. The player's card is then turned over to show the date of the historical event. If it is correct, it stays in place. Otherwise, the card is discarded and the player must draw another to replace it.

The more cards placed in the timeline, the harder it is to ask new without making a mistake! The first player who has no more cards wins!
