Dive into the lives and achievements of remarkable women who shaped our world, from ancient trailblazers to modern heroines, with our Women’s History Timeline Game!
Compete against friends or family to assemble an accurate timeline of remarkable women throughout history. Each of the eighty game cards represents a famous woman, starting with Enheduanna (2285-2250 BCE) and ending with Malala Yousafzai (b. 1997). Your task is to place each card in its correct chronological position within a timeline that spans over 4000 years. The first player to correctly place all their cards wins the game!

How to Play the Women’s History Timeline Game

In the beginning, each player gets a certain number of cards (2-5, depending on the number of players). They see the names of the women, but not their years of life. One random card is placed in the center, with the year side up. This card becomes the starting point of the timeline.

On their turn, players try to place one of their cards into the correct place on the timeline. Once the player makes a choice of which card and where to place it, they can turn it to the year side and check their answer. If they’re right, the card stays in place, and the next player takes a turn. If they’re wrong, the card is discarded, and they add a new card to their hand from the deck, ending their turn.

The player who is left without any cards wins. If several players place their last card during the same round, all other players are eliminated, and a tie is broken by drawing and placing new cards until all but one player has been eliminated.

But that’s not all.

You can add extra cards that add elements of luck and strategy!

Ancient History Timeline with Elements of Luck

Set it up like the educational variant described on the previous page, but add the deck of luck-enhancing cards. At the beginning of each game, in addition to famous women cards, each player gets a random luck-enhancing card. These cards allow players to ask for help, exchange one of their cards, or steal a card from another player and replace it with one of their own

Play the game as described above, but you can choose to use one of the luck-enhancing cards while placing a famous woman card. 

This version of the game adds an element of luck, thievery, and cooperation, which may appeal to younger players or a more relaxed company.

Co-Op History Timeline Game

This game is also similar to the educational game described on page 2, but the point of this game is to work together and build a long timeline. This works especially well for games with young players and classroom settings.
