Star Wars Timeline Review & Giveaway!

Way back in May when I as at the last Blog On Conference I was intrigued by the Timeline games from Esdevium Games (Asmodee). 
What is Timeline?

Timeline is a card game played using 110 double-sided cards. Each card depicts an historical event, invention or discovery on both sides. The year in which that event occurred is on one side only. On the players turn they must decide where to place one of their cards in the timeline before turning it over to see if they are right. Correctly play all of your cards to win! If you mis-place your card in the timeline you must remove that card from the timeline and draw another.
We were sent the Star Wars Timeline game for the monkeys to try! Ideal for children aged 8+ the game is for 2-8 players and game play is approximately 15 minutes. The tin contains 110 cards, in this case featuring scenes from episodes IV, V and VI from the original Star Wars. 
What we thought?

Ideal for travel we took this game away on holiday. Little monkey is too young to successfully play it but big monkey at 8yrs can easily read the cards and have a go at placing them in the timeline. Although interested in Star Wars, we're not fanatics so much of the game was all about guess work.....a Star Wars geek would have much better luck at guessing the correct order the cards should go in the timeline! 

We think it's fun, it was great for a quick game with older children and adults to play together of an evening on holiday! I think a general knowledge one would be more successfully played here and I would definitely purchase further Timeline games as the monkeys get older. Easy to transport in it's tin, the game is small enough to put into a handbag or kids back pack and would fit into the seat pockets of the car!
With 6 different Timeline games available to play there is a fair choice. All compatible with the other (excluding the Star Wars ones). Two new games are due soon too - Another Star Wars I-III one and British History. 
This Star Wars Timeline game is currently available from Esdevium Games at Amazon for £9.35. 

We have a Timeline game to giveaway to one reader! N:B The game will be chosen by Esdevium and sent directly to the winner, drawn randomly after the closing date of Midnight Sunday 18th Sept 2016. T&C's apply. Open to UK residents only. Good luck!
