Quick, cheap, simple - fun!

Surprising game. Saw it was available relatively cheaply, so bought two packs to take away on a camping trip. Lovely tiny tin package, and small cards so very portable.

Had a quick game one evening on a camping table with family (2 adults to early teens) and immediately played again adding the second pack into the mix.

Very simple to pick up and learn, no setup, lots of fun and informative as well (I now know when Bee's were first 'invented'). Literally no reason not to buy and the more packs you get the more variety you get in the game. So simple but a real good filler, or indeed a travel game.

Base rules say you have 4 cards each, no reason why you can't make it 5 or 6 or more (although you will quickly spread out to the length of your table!!) and you can also make it harder/easier for younger/older players by giving them less/more cards.

Just works really well.

Timeline: Inventions is a card game played using 55 cards. Each card depicts an invention on both sides, with the year in which that invention was created on only one side. Players take turns placing a card from their hand in a row on the table. After placing the card, the player reveals the date on it. If the card was placed correctly with the date in chronological order with all other cards on the table, the card stays in place; otherwise the card is removed from play and the player takes another card from the deck.

The first player to get rid of all his cards by placing them correctly wins. If multiple players go out in the same round, then everyone else is eliminated from play and each of those players are dealt one more card for another round of play. If only one player has no cards after a bonus round, he wins; otherwise play continues until a single player goes out.

 

2-8 PLAYERS | 15-30 MINS | AGES 8+
