Product Reviews


Average Rating: 4 in 1 review

Good, fun, educational, and badly printed.
November 23, 2012

This is a simple and playful game for casual cards or the IPad. The game is simple: lay out one invention per player turn in chronological order in the center. As the line of cards in the center gets longer, inserting a card between the two closest inventions becomes harder. It provides a good way to talk to children about the meaning of each invention and works well with mixed ages.

The cards are small little things, fine for small hands. The problem is the printing: the front and back are nearly identical. The only difference is a banner with the year, so people are constantly getting them upside down. It should have a colored border with the type of invention on the date side. It's an inconvenience that keeps the game from hitting five stars.

There is also an IPad version of the game for about 20% the price. It does not have same vibe as real cards.
