Star Wars Timeline Game Review

We have been very lucky this year to review some brilliant games from Esdevium Games, including Hotel Tycoon, Dobble, Jungle Speed and Timeline. This week we’ve received a new game from them, which is a different version of Timeline, Star Wars Timeline.

The boys were really excited when this parcel arrived, as they just like myself are huge Star Wars fans! The game comes in a handy tin, which handily even fits inside my handbag.

Star Wars Timeline

It’s not all that long til the new Star Wars film comes out, and I can’t wait to take the boys to the cinema to see it. Playing this game has them even more excited for it now as well.

Simon isn’t keen on any kind of science fiction/space type of film, so the boys and I played our new Timeline game just the three of us. It is similar to the other Timeline games, as you need to work out in what order the events from the films happened. Obviously though it isn’t the years you are using, just the order they happened.

If you aren’t a Star Wars fan and haven’t watched the films, then you have no chance of playing this game well at all I’m afraid, luckily the three of us have seen all of the films too many times to count. I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl and wanted to grow up to be Princess Leia and have an Ewok for a pet! Realistic life expectations of course…

I think Harley’s favourite part of the Star Wars Timeline  game, is that the rules state, that the youngest player has to go first, which in our house is always him.

The basic instructions/rules of the game are that you are all given 4 cards (or more if you want to play it differently) which you have to put with the non numbered side up (no cheating!) and the rest of the cards are left in the pile – number side down – in the middle of the table. One of these cards is turned over in the centre to be the starting card, with the timeline number showing.

You all take it in turns then, to place one of your cards next to the starting card – before or after depending in which order you think things happened, and if you place it in the right place it stays there, if not the card goes back to the box, and you have to pick another card.

The winner of the game is the one who gets rid of all of their cards, by getting them in the right order. I was surprised how many of the events the boys got in the right order during the game, but then they do also play Lego Star Wars on the XBOX 360, so I’d imagine that helped.

Star Wars Timeline Game

We loved this game, and the boys were very animated and cheeky about how rubbish I was when I placed a card in completely the wrong place. If I was you if you plan to buy the Star Wars Timeline game for your own children for Christmas, then have a cheeky re-watch of the films on your own before the day. Especially if you too have a smug nine-year-old at home!

The game is recommended for ages 8+ and I think that is about right, but if you have  a big Star Wars fan with a good memory who is younger, then I am sure they would love it as well.

If you wanted to buy this game as a Christmas present, or for yourself then you can currently buy it at Waterstones on the high street for a RRP of £12.99, and a whole host of other shops online. You can also have a try to win one for yourself in the rafflecopter competition at the bottom of this page!

Good Luck!
