Order of Invention


What Will You Wager Came First?

In a game of "Which came first", players wager on the order in which a series of popular items were invented, such as The Slinky, White-out, and many more? Correct guesses gain points, and the player with the most points wins! You'll be surprised at the year many items that you still use today were invented!

A deck of Invention cards have a picture and the name of the invention on one side and the year it was invented on the other. Four Invention cards are placed on the table with the year face down. Each player has four player chips with first, second, third and fourth in them. Players place their chips face down next to the Invention cards to indicate the order they think those 4 cards were invented. For each chip placed next to the correct invention card, players receive a point. These points can be wagered in future rounds. Whoever has the highest score after 5 rounds, wins!

The Invention Deck has one Invention per year with no duplicate years. They include a wide variety of inventions in consecutive years spanning from the late 1890's to the 1970's. Inventions are easily recognizable but just obscure enough that each game will be a challenge!
