RIGAUD, QC — January 24, 2023 — Today Zygomatic and Asmodee announced their latest title, Timeline Twist, a reimagination of the popular Timeline series. With a focus on cooperative strategic gameplay, Timeline Twist challenges players to work together and place historical event cards in chronological order. Timeline Twist is planned for a Spring 2023 release on the Asmodee store and at select retailers for an anticipated MSRP of $16.99.
Timeline Twist features 100 unique cards, each with a different historical event, that players work collaboratively to place on a timeline and earn points. Each team’s goal is to correctly place as many of their cards on the timeline before their opponents. Players need more than just historical knowledge to succeed in Timeline Twist, with rules designed to reward strategic thinking and teamwork.
“Timeline Twist is an accessible experience designed to bring families to the table while also offering a challenge to seasoned card game experts,” said Frédéric Henry, Lead Designer for Timeline Twist. “Our re-imagined Timeline ruleset rewards teamwork, creating an approachable environment where everyone feels welcome. Timeline Twist is perfect for players looking to introduce a new title to family board game night.”
Timeline Twist Key Features:
- Cooperative Gameplay: Timeline Twist is centered around cooperation and strategy, with an approachable play style for seasoned veterans and newcomers. While knowledge of history is rewarded, players with any skill level can use strategy to succeed.
- High Replay Value: Timeline Twist includes 100 unique cards in total but only uses 36 per game, keeping players at the table with different combinations and endless hours of fun.
- A Game for All: Timeline Twist is perfect for groups of 2-6 players over the age of 8, with a 20 minute average game time.
First released in 2012, Timeline has received multiple expansions, including Timeline Music & Cinema and Timeline Inventions. Following in the footsteps of previous versions of the game, this new Timeline Twist will also have a range of themed versions. The first one is all about pop culture and is set to release at the same time as the base game.
