Today we look at Timeline Star Wars from Asmodee games. Its a card game for 2-8 players. Set in the "original" trilogy of Star Wars Films.
Inside the box....
It recommends from ages 8 up on the box, but I think this can be varied, , Olivia is 6, but loves the Star Wars films, so is not bad at it, but then when I play against my friends of similar age to me it gets real tense as we where all brought up on these films.
Its a great quick fun game for adults, the box states about 15 minutes for games, which is about right, though the games I have played I found to be about 10 minutes, so its fast and does not outstay its welcome. Its a good "filler" game, a great party game as you can play a few quick ones then move onto something else and come back to it with ease as there is so little to teach.
For a Timeline game series fan, its a nice addition to the set, which currently stands at Historical Events, Music and Cinema, Science and Discoveries, Inventions and General Interest. though I do not think this would be compatible with the current sets. But as a Star Wars fan this is a must have, if for nothing else then flicking through the cards, but playing it is great, especially with other Star Wars fans.
Though its not as easy as you may think, I am a fan and even I struggled when the timeline got long, so its a challenge, plus an excuse to watch Star Wars for research purposes of course.
