A RACE IN TIME: A fantastic family board game, designed, in the UK, to take you on a blast through world  history as you race from start to finish from the sandswept Ancient Egyptian pyramids to today’s Lunar launchpad.  Collect History Heroes cards as you go and move around the board by answering quiz questions to gather the ultimate world-leading crew to complete a secret objective. From Aristotle to Angelou, from Caesar to Columbus, Can you finish the board game first? Can you assemble the best team to stop global warming? Solve world hunger? Win the Olympics? What happens when you put together Spartacus, Leonardo da Vinci and Frida Kahlo to produce the next entertainment blockbuster?

How to Play

You can play the game simply as a race around the board from start to finish, answering quiz questions to move forward and taking your chances with Event squares: they may help propel you forward…but they could stop you in your tracks!

If you want a bigger challenge, race around the board…with a secret objective to complete too: Collect and discard History Heroes cards as you move around the board to gather the ultimate world-leading crew. Reach the Finish first with the best 5 History Heroes in your hand to win the game AND the chosen/secret objective. How will you know if YOU have the best 5 History Heroes at the end of the game? That’s for all players to decide and vote on: lay your cards on the table; put your tin helmets on; roll up your sleeves and let the battle of wits commence!

A great board game for all ages from 8 – 80+: the perfect, fun quiz game to battle against each other, enjoy together and all learn a little along the way.
