Asmodee sent us details of the latest two additions to their extremely popular Timeline games. As a new citizen and originally an Englishman, I have a feeling I’ll struggle with this one so it might have a huge educational benefit to me!
From the first Stetson hat to the unveiling of the first iPad, America’s history and its popular culture have gone hand in hand. See if you can remember when the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth, or when Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic. American popular history was never this much fun!
Timeline: Americana takes the players through a historical tour of the popular history of the country. Each player has a hand of cards, and they take turns placing those cards correctly into the growing timeline. Guess correctly to get rid of all your cards and win the game!
- 110 double-sided cards

- Educational and entertaining. This helps this former Englishman.
- Brilliant art by industry-leading talent.
- The seventh in the wildly popular Timeline series.
- 2 – 8 players
- Ages 8+

Timeline: American History
If this was European History I’d win hands down but this isn’t so I learnt a lot from the game. Things like, which happened first, the Salem Witch Trials or the foundation of Harvard College? Was Watergate before Woodstock? Sure, it’s easy to know whether the discovery of America came before the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, but how well can you remember everything that happened in between?
In Timeline: America – History, players have hands of cards and take turns attempting to place the cards correctly into the growing timeline. Easy at first, but rapidly growing more difficult, Timeline: America – History will test your knowledge and help you learn the history of the nation.
