Dates schmates. With Chronology, you can put your historical know-how to use without actually knowing the exact dates of an event.

Here’s how it works: On your turn, someone will read one of 858 historical events out loud. All you have to do is decide where it falls in your timeline. For example, when was the bikini introduced? Was it before or after man landed on the moon?

If you’re right, you get to keep the card and your timeline grows. If you’re wrong, the other players have a chance to put the card in their timeline and earn a point. The first player to correctly place 10 cards in their timeline wins.

What came first-- Sputnik or the Supercomputer? This game takes history class and brings it to life. I love challenging my friends to see who knows the nitty gritty of history!

Have a date night with History.

Great game for anyone


Back to order a second set, since my college-age son has taken our original to school with him and there's no chance we're getting it back. Simple and quick to play. Easy rules. Enough thinking to make it challenging, but not so much that it make it a chore to play or can't be enjoyed across ages and education levels.

Great game. Quick and uncomplicated.


This game is easy to play. On each turn, your choices are before, after, or in between two dates. Even young kids who don't know the answer can guess. If you are older and know some history, it's a fun challenge. It's fast moving and a game can be finished in 15 or 20 minutes. If you like history and trivia you'll like Chronology.

Great for everyone


Even my non-game playing husband enjoys this game. Easy to learn with lots of interesting facts. Starts out easy and gets progressively harder as the game moves on.

How To Play

How to Play:  To start, each player reads one card drawn from the box, including the year, and places it face up in front of them. Then, players take turns reading event cards without revealing the date. The player to the left of the reader must guess where the event falls on the timeline of cards in front of them. If the player guesses correctly, he or she wins that card and places it in their timeline. If the player's guess is incorrect, the player to their left makes a guess. This continues until someone guesses correctly or the card is returned to the box.  How to Win:  Be the first player to build a timeline of 10 event cards.
