Was the light bulb invented before or after glasses? With Timeline, find the answer to this question and thousands of others by confronting your knowledge or intuition with historical reality. At the beginning of the game, players are all given the same number of cards representing monuments, inventions, etc. On the back of each card is a date. To begin, a card is randomly drawn from the cards not dealt to the players. It is placed in the centre of the table face up and is the starting point of a chronological line that will be completed little by little by the players.

The first player then chooses one of his cards. If he thinks that the date of his card's invention is earlier than that of the initial card, he places his card to the left of the initial card. If he believes that his invention was created afterwards, he places his card to the right of the original card. The player's card is then turned over, face up. If he is right, it stays in place. If not, his card is discarded and he must draw another card to replace it.

The game continues in a clockwise direction. The more cards he places, the harder it is to place new ones without making a mistake! The first player to run out of cards wins. Please note that the cards in the Timeline Inventions blister are a selection of cards from previous editions of Timeline Inventions.
