Blogger Board game Club – Timeline British History

This months game is Timeline – British History


Timeline British History is a card game that is played using 109 cards. Each card has an event on both sides, with the year in which that it happened on  one side. Players take turns placing a card from their hand in a row on the table. After placing the card, the player reveals the date on it. If the card was placed correctly with the date in chronological order with all other cards on the table, the card stays in place; otherwise the card is removed from play and the player takes another card from the deck. The first player to get rid of all their cards by placing them correctly wins. If multiple players go out in the same round, then everyone else is eliminated from play and each of those players are dealt one more card for another round of play. If only one player has no cards after a bonus round, they win otherwise play continues until a single player goes out.

Timeline is  simple, quick and fun game to play with all the family. They come in a small tin that is great to throw into my bag and have been life savers when we have been out for meals and the wait for food has taken a while or just kill the boredness they have while waiting. This half term we packed  it into our suitcase as we were going away.  Each game  takes about 15 minutes to play which I think is a good amount of time, it also great for learning. Whilst playing we have learnt so much about British history that we didn’t know or thought it had happened years after it did. It would be a fab game for anyone who does home education too. I like that you can also combine more than one Timeline game to make game play a little more interesting.

There are more Timeline also have more versions on the games here is the list.

  • General Interest
  • Historical Events
  • Invention
  • Music and Cinema
  • Science and Discoveries
  • Starwars

They are reasonably priced too at around £13.99

**disclosure I was sent this game as part of the  Amodee Blogger Board game club for review **

Fat To Fit????

If some of you have been around long enough you might remember a little series I had here called Fat to Fit Friday. Where I tried to get myself healthier and feeling better about myself.

Seen as I haven’t posted a fat to fit Friday for a very long time, some may say that I failed in getting myself healthier and yes you’re right I did fail. I just couldn’t keep myself going. I found I was restricting myself and I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing.

For me your head has to be in the right place and have the motivation to keep going and enjoy the changes that you are making within your life.

So yes I gave up!

Fast forward to January 2018

After weeks of thinking about how I have been feeling and how low in self-confidence I am with how I look and seeing others around me making the changes I wanted to make but too scared to take that leap of faith to commit myself to failure again. That was my mindset why try and fail for yet another time.

But then, if you don’t try you never know right?

So on the 13/1/ I got up at 7am got ready and walked up to my local Slimming World group and signed up. It was time to make those changes that I wanted/ needed to make.
So this is me

Yes this is a small picture, I don’t really like pictures of me.

This is the person who isn’t confident, even though at times it seems like I am, deep down I’m far from it. This is me I am not happy with how I look. How I feel.

I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to document my progress here yet, I would like to keep a log so that I can look back on for when I reach where I want to be or when I’m finding things hard to see how far I have come.

This time I’m not going to fail,  I’m going to keep going and I WILL reach a place where I am who I want to be and be happier and healthier for not just me but for my family.

Thank you for taking the time to read this ramble but I just wanted to get something down to give me the motivation to keep going.
