Timeline British History review and giveaway

A few months ago, in May, I’ve reviewed Timeline and Dobble. I loved those games and I was delighted to be sent the newest Timeline game: British History. I learned British history mostly by watching movies (The Tudors, Outlander), documentaries and visiting museums and locations managed by English Heritage and National Trust. It’s an amazing way to learn new things, it’s so much easier to remember them. I wasn’t too keen on history at school and anyway, British history was just a small part of European history.  As a teenager I had no idea back then that I will move here, so it wasn’t something I particularly paid attention to.

That being said. Lets talk about the game. These aren’t the type of games that you play only once, they are so much fun. We’ve played a few times in the last months and not only while caravanning.


Timeline British History covers a range of events, from the formation of the islands to modern history like Prince William & Catherine wedding, the vote to leave the EU and the London Olympics. As with the other Timeline games, some events are so close that it’s very hard to place them in a timeline and it makes playing the game so much fun.


As we were familiar with the game, we chose 6 cards each and we’ve started playing. It was so engaging that we forgot to take pictures for the review. It just meant we had to play again and again.


If you have other Timelines, they can be mixed up and you can use all the cards. It will make the game harder, but that’s the fun.


If you want to buy the game, it’s only £13.99 and it can be found on Amazon and findyourgamestore.

  1. I love games like this. This is what I miss about having housemates as we used to play loads of games like this when we lived together!

  2. I’ve entered the competition because my knowledge of British History is pretty terrible, and by the sounds of things I really need this game, haha!

    I never really enjoyed learning about Britain in history at school because it seemed boring compared to the Egyptians and the Romans. But I think it’s important we know our own history.

  3. I love games like this. This one looks great! I’m definitely going to be entering the giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win! 😀

  4. Good job it’s British history and not American, It’d be over in two moves! (Hehe)

    Genuinely sounds great though, my nephew is turning 7 in January and he’d go crackers for this! Thank you!!
