Timeline Classic is an incredibly engaging educational trivia game. Innovative gameplay makes learning about a specific topic in the past easy, enjoyably competitive, and highly replayable. Players start with one randomly drawn card in the middle of the table to form the timeline, and on their turn, they place a card before or after it – depending on when they think this happened. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins!
