Was the light bulb invented before or after glasses? With Timeline, learn the answer to this question and many more. Each card has a different invention and on the opposite side its associated date.
To begin, one card is randomly selected from the draw pile. This is placed in the middle of the table, date-side up and is the starting point of a chronological line which will slowly be built by players. The first player then chooses one of their cards and places it before or after the initial card. The player's card is then turned date-side up. If the player was right, it remains on the table. Otherwise, the card is discarded and a new one must be drawn to replace it. The more cards which are correctly played, the harder it is to correctly place new ones! The first player to get rid of their cards wins.
This box contains 110 small invention-themed cards, which can be mixed with the other themes in the Timeline series of games. By mixing two boxes of Timeline with different themes, you can increase possibilities and make the game even wilder!
