How It Plays

  • Game Mechanics:  Timeline is a hand management, date trivia game.  Players start with a hand of 4 event cards that have the year the event occurred shown on the back of each card.  Play begins with one card drawn from a draw deck to the middle of the table, date side up.  Players take turns playing a card from their hand trying to place it in the correct date sequence of the cards already played.  The card is then turned over reveling the date of the event.  If the placement was correct the card stays in place and play continues to the next player.  If the placement is incorrect,  it's discarded and the player must draw another card into their hand..
  • End Game/Victory:  The first player with no cards left in their hand is the winner.
