Designed by Linda Romero. Published by The Branch Office. For 2 or more players and takes 30-45 minutes to play. The Perspective game board is divided into four color-coded regions: Ancient, Middle, Modern and 20th Century. Each region represents a timeline into which players place events. Everyone starts the game with a random assortment of event cards. Each card describes an historical event. Play consists of placing a card on the appropriate timeline (cards have colored borders matching their timeline). The idea is to place it in its historically correct position on the timeline— that is, between the events chronologically closest to it in each direction.
