Was the light bulb invented before or after glasses? With Timeline, find the answer to this question and thousands more by confronting your knowledge or intuitions with historical reality.

At the beginning of the game, all players receive the same number of cards representing monuments, inventions, etc., as in the game. On the back of each card there is a date. To begin, a card is drawn at random among the cards not dealt to players. It is placed in the center of the table face visible date and constitutes the starting point of a chronological line which will be gradually completed by the players.

The first player then chooses one of his cards. If he thinks that the date of the invention of his card dates from before that of the initial card, he places his card to the left of the initial card. If he considers that his invention was created afterwards, he places his card to the right of the initial card. The player's card is then turned face up, date face up. If he's right, she stays put. Otherwise, his card is discarded and he must draw another card to replace it.

The game continues clockwise. The more cards there are placed, the more difficult it is to ask new ones without making a mistake! The first player to run out of cards wins.

Principe simplissime pour un parfait équilibre entre côté ludique et culture.

    J’ai essayé ce jeu en cours de français langue étrangère pour travailler les chiffres et des expressions comme « entre telle et telle carte » « ça s’est passé avant / après » et les apprenants se sont régalés. On a appris plein de choses en même temps. Top! Je finirai probablement par acheter une extension pour les plus jeunes qui préfèrent la musique ou autre. Belle idee!

    Jeu à la règle simple, bien illustré. Je l'utilise avec des adultes en formation français langue étrangère : on s'entraîne à dire les dates, à passer des noms aux verbes , à utiliser la voix passive, on commente l'utilité de telle ou telle invention. Mon reproche principal : je trouve les cartes sont vraiment petites : 4,2 cm sur 6,2 cm.

    Classique, mais toujours aussi bon, pour des petites parties.

    Excellent petit jeu "apéritif". Il est très grand public, car règles très simples et sujet intéressant.

    On range les cartes dans l'ordre chronologique. L'inconvénient c'est que le premier joueur a un net avantage sur le dernier. Peut-être ne faut-il donner que 3 cartes à chaque joueur au début de partie et placer initialement 4 cartes sur la table pour rééquilibrer un peu le jeu.

    des surprises concernant l'ancienneté de certaines inventions à la surprise de tous les participants!
