Sandwiches or the USA, mayo or ketchup, Scotland or England... reckon you know which one came first? Then it's time to put your money where your mouth is.
The more you wager, the more you win and the faster you move around the track - but get it wrong and you'll be heading backwards in a hurry.
I picked this up because I knew it would be the kind of game my kids would like. Each turn you look at the top card, which will have two items and you need to guess which came first, for example - the USA or sandwiches? Donald Trump or Fake Tan? Star Trek or Star Wars? And so on. Each team makes a bid on which they think came first, betting 1-3 tokens. If you really want, you can also play said tokens on the year space, and give the exact year you think the item you're bidding on was. If you are correct, you get to move forward the number of chips you bet, if incorrect you move back that many. Each answer will also give you a little trivia.
There are extra tokens, that each team gets to place one of on the board, and these activate various abilities if they are landed on. I like the game enough that we will hang onto it and play it again. The downside to it is that if you're just making a stab at a guess, even though your odds are 50/50, if you keep guessing wrong you shave a major disadvantage and get pushed far back. Also, if you play with only two teams it ends up feeling massively unfair to one team over the other. As such, the kids and I made a house rule that you could bet as much as you wanted and only move back one space, that way there's still an effect for guessing wrong but it isn't such a huge pushback that you can't get back ahead.
A cute little game that really puts the timing of things into perspective and has you going 'huh' over some matchups that you wouldn't think of being close (and some gaps are actually years but some are just days).
