  1. It’s a really fun game, very educational, but… I first played this game with a friend who bought it at a local gaming convention. It was a very fun game, however the replay value is not the greatest. Once you play through all the cards (which can take less than ten games) you’ve got them pretty well much memorized, particularly the ones that made you go “Really? that was invented/discovered in THAT year? I thought it was invented sooner/later!” the first time you played them. However, I was told by the vendor that expansion packs are in the works, and once those come out, should add to the replay value of this game.Despite its problems with replay value, this game is great to help your older kids (and yourselves, as well) bone up on their history.

  2. Fun and educational Friends and I played this the other night. All enjoyed the game. Four of us played through the stack of 109 cards in three games; I agree with another post that you can probably learn the cards (i.e. the dates of the inventions) in about ten games, so for the cost of a movie ticket you and your friends get a history lesson. I’m looking forward to the expansion packs. The version I bought came in a very nice metal box and some teaser cards from future sets (monuments, art and literature, etc). The pictures are lovely, but the cards are a little small.

  3. Don’t let the eductaional element fool you…it’s fun I played this with people who don’t normally play any kind of game, people who play lots of board games, and people of varying ages (kids to adults). In every case I never left a game where people didn’t want to go out and buy a copy for themselves.It’s premise is simple, yet not so simple that intelligence and strategy have no place. And with a fairly large number of cards you don’t “learn” the order of things as easily as you might think. A lot of fun is derived from people trying to reason when one thing was invented/discovered before another. On top of all that, it’s quick and compact. You can take it anyhwere and knock a game out in 10-15 minutes, depending on how many people are playing. A 2 player game takes about 10 minutes.This is a great game for people who think they don’t like board or card games.
