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

Picked it up from B&N on clearance and have enjoyed playing it. It's somewhat better than Timeline because each card can be used in one of three ways instead of just one feature. I have noticed that some of the wording is off on the cards though, like one card was called a ferret but was actually what we call a polecat in America, thus our guesses were totally wrong. Still, a good game.

Great educational game for the kids. Can go by lifespan, weight, or size. Some were really tricky. Which lives longer: a badger or a golden retriever?

Another great Timeline game, but this time there are three different games to play. You may choose your game based on guessing an animals length, weight or how long it lives. One creature is placed in the center of the table with it's stats revealed. Everyone in turn will place one of their creatures in relation to the ones currently in play.

Typical Timeline style of play and loads of fun. Also, if you are a fan of the game Fauna, this is another game that you would be interested in.

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.

Great game for kids to learn more about the animal kingdom. Game is simple enough, pick one of three categories (weight, size, and lifespan) and place the cards in your hand into the row of animal cards on the table...than reveal, by turning your card over, if you are correctly in the right spot. If so, that's it, if not, draw a card and keep trying!

First one out wins.

(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.

Family. 2-6p, 15m.

Our first Cardline game. Unlike Timeline, which requires at least a rudimentary knowledge or awareness of history, this is totally playable with kids since they are familiar with most/all of the animals and can make relative comparisons between them, at least for size and weight. Playing by life expectancy is a little harder, even for adults.
