So far, this has been a big hit in our house. Timeline was popular too, but this has been more so (more accessible?). Loving the artwork, the diversity of creatures, and that it's been a challenge for kids and adults.

All the fun of Timeline except with a different, more interesting theme and a ton more replayability. Also love the larger cards.

There was an error in the peacock size, which i corrected with a sharpie. Also, imperial units? Pfft. The WORLD no longer uses imperial units. Otherwise, a great game.

A fantastic game to play with kids. I've played this game countless times now and it's still fun. It is so quick that we usually end up playing multiple games in a row. With adults I prefer "timeline - inventions".

Picked this up for Payton. It's awesome for kids. Just like timeline, but uses animal lengths/weights/lifespan. For what it is(a game for kids) it's great. It also has a good range of enjoyment as, even adults have fun with it. A kids game, that adults actually enjoy.

Much better than Fauna, because simplier yet deeper. Nice family/casual game !

There is no factual error in the french edition. Since it's language independant, you could use this version if you are familiar with metric system.

Great game for kids and adults to play together. Its like all the other timeline games, you have to put your cards in order based on a certain criteria (life expectancy, size, weight), and many of the cards are pretty close, so when you start getting many cards out in the row it becomes increasingly difficult to get them in the right order.

Very good game to teach animals to young kids (5 to 10). They can learn to read it turning 6/7 . Very fun to play with groups of adults and children. I would pkay timeline instead if only with adults

A very simple, quick, and educational yet it is still entertaining. Obviously the comparisons to timeline has to be made. This game gives you three choices of catagory (size, weight and lifespan) so their is a bit more variety. This subject is a little more interesting than dates for me so it rates a little higher. Good for a short filler game but if I want the same thematic feel in a little deeper game than I would choose a game like Fauna instead. As it scratches the same itch.

Similar to Las Vegas in a lot of respects (right amount of chance, social, not chaotically fast-paced but quick enough that you don't lose interest, simple to understand but complex enough to engage, good fun overall). I was very skeptical about this game but found it to be awesome in the end! At first, it's easy as the diversity of animals is generally great enough to place your card on the table in order (for example: is my one animal, say a horse, bigger or smaller than the other two, say an elephant and a fly, on the board?) but beware, there are always some unexpected surprises (like a 1.5m fish). As more cards are on the table though, the difference between them is smaller and you have to be far more precise in your estimations, leading to a lot of nail-biting and close calls. The cards are cute, the pressure's on, the game is fun, and you get to learn a lot from it. My two complaints would be (1) how re-playable is it? I feel like eventually you would learn to see patterns in the cards and/or remember previous games, to your advantage. With only three variations (weight, height, and age), it may have a limited shelf life (2) that Labradors are not 0.8m long!

It's not that I love this game and want to play it all the time, but it is phenomenally simple to play while hard to win; it is very accessible to kids (who often know way more about animals than adults); and it's okay to shout with laughter at your own ignorance. An excellent game to bring for kids who may not be gamers yet.

(KIDS) This is a really cute and simple game. I enjoy this game with my kids as they don't really need much help (except my 5 year old with understanding the inches to feet comparisons). I also like that there are 3 different characteristics on the cards to ensure the game gets some replayability.

We love the Timeline series - this game expands on those in a way that's more accessible for younger kids.

Beware the card errors, though. The average weight of a ferret is NOT over 30 pounds.

I really hated the historically theme timeline games -- they feel inaccessible and too much of trivia. But judging animal masses/lengths/lifespans is something where you can use reason to supplement trivial knowledge, so it is much more appealing to me.

The goal of the game is to order all the cards according to specific attribute (length, weight or age span) of an animal. All choices you make are based on educated guesses. Very simple rules and not much strategy, but plays quickly and have beautiful art. Appropriate to even quite young children.

I think this is one of the best out of the cardline series. Great for kids. I like how you can decide whether to play using the weight, height, or lifespan of the animals. Makes it feel like 3 games in one.
