The sheep is obviously larger and heavier than the hedgehog, but does it live longer? I know that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was one of the largest and heaviest prehistoric predators on land, but would it be larger or heavier than an aquatic predator like the Nothosaurus? And how do the two compare to modern animals like the elephant and humpback whale?
See your world in an all-new way through the engaging trivia challenges of CardLine!
Following the example set by the award-winning Timeline series of games, each title in the CardLine series is packed full of fast-paced and educational fun for two to eight players. The goal? Empty your hand of cards by playing them into the correct positions amid the ever-growing line of animals, dinosaurs, or nations. If you're the first player to empty your hand, you win!
Expanding Your Horizon
You know that the tawny owl has to weigh less than the sea cow, but does it weigh more or less than a peregrine falcon? Would its lifespan be longer or shorter than that of an emperor penguin? You're fairly certain that Norway has fewer citizens than Germany, but does it have more or less than Congo Brazzaville? And which of these nations emits the most CO2 each year?
These are the sorts of questions that you'll ask yourself as you play any of the games within the CardLine series. Each turn, you'll try to place one of the cards from your hand into the correct position on the ever-growing line. If you play the card correctly, you have one less card in front of you. If you play the card incorrectly, you must replace it with a new card from the deck. If you're the only player in a game round who can correctly play your last card, victory is yours!
While it's relatively easy to make your early plays, when you can simply decide whether a pigeon is smaller or larger than a giraffe, your decisions become increasingly challenging as the game continues and the line of cards begins to fill out.
Whenever you play a card in CardLine, you place it on the table in relation to the other cards in play. For example, if you believe the ostrich lives longer than the Bengal tiger, you would place its card to the right of of the tiger's. On the other hand, if you thought the Bengal tiger should have a longer lifespan, you would place the ostrich to its left. Either way, once you played the ostrich, you flip it over to check if your placement was correct.
Where Will Your Journey Begin?
There's just one CardLine mechanic. But the CardLine possibilities are boundless. From Animals and Dinosaurs to the Globetrotter edition that focuses on the world's nations, each game within the CardLine series introduces a complete set of more than one-hundred themed cards.
Revisit your favorite animals or travel around the world. No matter which CardLine game you play, you'll immediately recognize how to navigate your newly themed line of cards. The challenge will be in actually navigating it correctly!
