Elements: Cards, Rulebook.
You Need: 1 Pawn for every player, about 30 counters in each of 4 colors, and a
way to keep score.
Congratulations! You’ve invented a time machine. You will use it one day to
learn about the rich history of the planet and perhaps even contribute to the
betterment of Mankind. But first, you’re gonna play the stock market and get
really, stupidly rich.
Timeline starts with a row of cards depicting crisscrossing paths, which
represent the values of commodities. By connecting a starting point, which never
moves, to a “market” at the other end of the board, the lines connect four
commodities to four values. As time changes, these values change. And they
change a lot.
During the game, players will travel through time picking up miscellaneous
commodities, then going to the markets at the end of the line trying to get the
most value for their goods. The deck contains 48 cards in the familiar abstract
Hip Pocket style, and you’ll need a Pawn for each player as well as about 30
colored stones in each of four colors.
With very little randomness, Timeline is an intense and engaging strategy
game that, for what it’s worth, models aspects of time travel better than it has
any right to.
