Great little trivia game - fast and almost no rules. Also it's not a game of knowing exact information - more of being the best at estimating.

The BIG downside is the limited number of cards - you'll see them all before you have played 10 times. It really needs an expansion NOW!!

Nicer sized cards than the French version (they used to be very small but now are pretty standard) but, as others have said, the new box is horrible.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a masterpiece of complex game design but it does do what it does exceedingly well - recommended as a very quick filler, which you can explain in about 10 seconds and play a few rounds of in 10 minutes and yet offers a challenge with every card you play.

Fun game that feels like playing with flash cards. Good for nerds that have an interest in history. A player can get lucky draws and have an easy time, which makes the game feel cheesy sometimes.

I own most expansions and mixed them all up.

The packaging is poor, but the game is a fun. You guess when each event occurred and place it in the correct spot on the timeline. It plays in a few minutes.
It can be slightly embarrassing occasionally when you don't know when certain mayor events occurred. There is a decent degree of luck depending on which card you get which makes it easy to play with people of different skill levels.
My one wish is that the cards would contain a little bit more information about the event when you reverse them.

Family gaming with an educational element. What's not to like? Just a couple of things: it's a hame they didn't include some background text on the cards to add to the educational side. And replayability is low once you've got through the deck. Still, we all have had a great time trying to pinpoint the date of the invention of the plus and minus sign, or the construction of the Zgreat a Wall of China.

This gets a big plus for me for having so many cards in the basegame (essentially it's 2 Timeline mini boxes in one). That level of replayability is wonderful.

It gets a small minus for the giant (and mildly flimsy feeling) cards. And it gets a huge minus for the lousy box that clearly won't stand up to any use/transportation/storage. That's a major failing on Esdevium's part.

This is a great little filler game, you can literally teach it in minutes, the "rules" are stretched out to even fill a small sheet, it's that simple, yet it's a lot of fun.

Essentially you are laying down cards with inventions/events/etc on them and a date on the reverse. As you lay cards down you are building up a timeline, each player guesses where their card fits in the timeline, they then flip it over, if they're wrong they move the card to its correct place in the timeline and take another card - play proceeds until one person has placed all of their cards and is declared the winner.

It's a fun game for players of all skill levels, even if you're a true history buff it starts to get tricky once the timeline is long enough. I was concerned about replay value but really, unless you have a photographic memory, you can happily play this through a few times (since you will often find yourself in a position where you're sure the card you're holding is from the 1800s, but there are already ten cards spread over the 1800s so finding the exact spot is still a challenge).

I would have scored it slightly higher, however I purchased the 2012 reprint and the box really lets it down, the to extent that I've thrown mine away and am trying to find a smaller container to fit the cards into. It's the worst packaging I've seen for a long time, cereal-box thin like a software box from the 90's with a CD that clips really tightly over the cards so you have to fiddle around every time you want to get them out or put them back.

The previous versions had neat little metal tins with a steampunk theme and just looked a lot better, a definite step back. It doesn't detract too much from the game but it makes it a hassle to get the game to the table unless you're willing to source a replacement.

A trivia game about chronology. You can play your hardest cards first, or you can play the cards that makes your opponents guesses more difficult. Not bad at all for such a game.

It's very accessible. Trivia is a familiar genre to family-gamers. It is quick to set-up and put away. It generates conversation and debate, and the facts contained in the set are genuinely interesting. It's a great game to play in a coffee shop, or after a dinner party.

As a game itself it is probably just a 6 BUT as a mean to teach something, discover something, learning something and keep alive your curiosity, it's an 8. So I rate this a 7: super simple, super fast but i'd like to play it with my children a lot (if only they played with me...)

Megvásárolva: 2014.12.06. (használt).
A sok kártya miatt többször is újrajátszható könnyed partijáték. Mivel évszámokon, történéseken alapul, így bizonyos életkor alatt nem ajánlott. Gyorsan magyarázható szabályok és játékmenet. Szerencsének fontos szerepe van abban, hogy milyen lapokat kapsz (persze a tudásnak is).
Magam is megerősítem, elnyerte a világ legrosszabb csomagolása címet.
A hozzá adott CD-t még nem próbáltam.
