In these card games, players try to determine the order of the events on the cards in their hands. Each player takes a turn placing one card into the “timeline”, working off of the first card flipped after cards are handed out. When they guess correctly, they don’t have to do anything, but if they’re wrong, they discard the incorrect card and pick up a new one from the deck! The first player to run out of cards wins.
We have two versions of Cardline here at the lounge: Animals and Globetrotter. The versions of the Timeline games we have are Science & Discoveries, Inventions, American History, Historical Events, and Diversity. Clearly, you could play these games for hours. They’re all a blast to play, and you learn a little bit every time you do!
Great for kids is the Cardline Animals game, which works the same way, but instead of the year it occurred or was invented, players can play based on the animal’s weight, size, or lifespan. I give this series a 10/10!
