Timeline: Historical Events
You know that Lindbergh didn't cross the Atlantic until after the airplane was invented, but did he cross it before or after the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth? The diving suit was surely invented after the catapult, right? But was it invented before or after the invention of the microscope?
These are the sort of questions you'll ask yourself whenever you play one of the games in the Timeline series. Each turn, you'll try to place a card from your hand into the correct position on the ever-growing timeline. If you play the card correctly, you have one less card in front of you. If you play the card incorrectly, you must replace it in your hand with a new card. If you're the only player in a game round who can correctly play your last card, you win!
It's relatively easy to make your early plays, when you can simply decide whether or not you would place the Founding of the Knights Templar before or after the The Invention of the Portable Phone. Your decisions become increasingly challenging as the game continues and the timeline begins to fill out.
This can be combined with other Timeline Card Sets, and can be played with Timeline Challenge.
