Perspective has been a big hit at our house! We're history fans to be sure but it took a few years of reading about Perspective before buying it because we usually make up our own time line and history trivia games However I'm so glad I finally bought the Perspective game! My 10- and 13-year-old kids enjoy it immensely and it has challenged everyone even mom and dad The game involves getting event/people cards into chronological order Sounds simple especially since the game board and cards are color-coded to help you know which events are Ancient times Middle Ages Early Modern and Modern But it's definitely challenging to get cross-cultural and close-together events in *exactly* the right order The rules are easy to adapt for younger kids or non-history-oriented folks you can allow peeking at the dates for example We have found that the cards represent a nice cross-section of cultures and times and it would be easy to add your own cards to match your current studies or interests I've noticed two especially big benefits from playing Perspective: 1 it's another way to review key dates; although we don't memorize all dates we do want to remember the biggies the Battle of Hastings the French Revolution the Great Depression etc; 2 most importantly we have to think through relationships across time and culture to determine which cards go where this person lived during this war so must have been before this other person who was around during a different war The one downside to the game is that the quality of the cards is so-so They're just uncoated card stock so they probably won't last forever That's really the only negative I can think of My kids request it during non-school time my husband likes to play it with us and I love the way it makes us think The game may be simple and the cards a little cheap but the game is well worth the money for its overall contribution to our history studies!
