Test your lack of historical knowledge with Timeline. The premise is simple: everyone gets a certain number of cards that need to be arranged in chronological order. The game gets harder as more cards get laid down. It’s not super competitive, since really everyone loses once they realize they’ve forgotten everything they ever learned in high school.
