Star Wars Timeline Review & Giveaway

We have a new game in our house and it is just perfect for us! We’ve been playing Timeline Star Wars

Timeline Star Wars

Gameplay

As the name suggests, this is a Timeline game. There are several different Timeline titles, including Inventions, General Interest, Music and Cinema and more. We opted for Star Wars as we feel we know a fair bit about the films.

The tin comes with a big stack of photo cards, with quotes on the images on one side, and on the other there is also a number and the episode that the scene appears in.

Timeline Star Wars cards

The set up is incredibly easy and fast, as this game is all about the cards. Each player receives four cards, which they place in front of them with the scene number on the reverse. A card is turned over and placed in the middle to begin play, and that card does have the scene number and episode revealed.

Players then take turns to add one of their cards to the Timeline. So on your turn you select a card and decide whether it goes before, after or somewhere in the middle of the Timeline, as you are looking to build up the films scenes in chronological order. If a card is placed incorrectly, it’s put to the bottom of the pile and the player needs to take another. The winner is the player who runs out of cards first.

The Verdict?

This is unlike anything we’ve played before, yet it’s an easy to understand concept and fun game to play. As the cards are all shuffled up, there are also endless possibilities and you’re not likely to repeat the same timelines and it’s not as though you can run out of questions. I do like that, as sometimes when you play games regularly, you can find yourself learning all of the answers over time!

It takes literally seconds to set it up and can be played very quickly, or you can choose to play it for a longer period of time, adding more and more cards to the Timeline.

The game comes in a handy little tin, which makes this one great for carrying around in my bag, and easy to store away without adding much to the huge pile of toys and games in the playroom.

To play this particular Timeline, you really need to know your Star Wars. As luck would have it, in this house all four of us do so it makes for a fun and engaging game. It suggests it is a game for aged 8 and up, though my 6 year old very easily grasped it and my 3 year old isn’t bad at it either!

We all really like this one and I can see it being a firm favourite here for years to come, I’d definitely recommend it for any Star Wars fans. I have also spotted that coming this autumn is the Timeline British History Edition – I really want that, though I’m not sure who will actually play with me! Use it as a revision tool?!

Star Wars Timeline is priced at £12.99 and is available from Amazon
