Did the scientist invent insulin before or after vaccination? When did people discovery the Planetary Motion? Not sure, why not check out this Timeline Science & Discoveries to learn and discover the beauty of science!
We have been playing this Timeline Science & Discoveries along with General Interest Timeline and Timeline Inventions! The game includes 110 cards and instructions. The cards are very small with matt surfaces but they are easy to handle. On each card, the top side includes an image and name of the card, and on the date side, it includes the image, date, name of the card and coloured background to facilitate the classification of the cards (Science & Discoveries have an orange background, Inventions have a blue and General Interest is green etc.). If you wish to make the game more challenging, you could mix in all the Timeline games’ cards to play!
The game involves players placing cards that represent events or objects on one side, and the date they occurred on the other side, in a timeline. Players are dealt upwards of four cards (depending on how many players there are) which they have to keep date side down. All the players are not allowed to look at the dates; they have to guess where in the Timeline the event fits and place it there before turning it over to discover whether they were correct. If not, that card gets discarded and that player draws a new card. The winner is the person to get rid of all of their cards first.
Still not sure how to play, why not check out this video! https://youtu.be/96DfDYrb4po
This is another great Timeline game that I would definitely recommend. It is fun and great for learning too! Also not forgetting the Star Wars Timeline which we had reviewed previously.
There are five different versions of the game; Historical Events, Inventions, Music & Cinema, Science & Discoveries and General Interest. They are available from Waterstones and Amazon. It is for ages 8 and above to be played with 2 to 8 players.
