Try This Addictive Wiki History Game

Here’s a serious time sink for history nerds, but you don’t have to be a history nerd to enjoy it. The Wiki History Game is a free browser game in which you are challenged to place historical events in chronological order. They range from carbon-dated prehistory events to movie premiere dates, but the more of them you get, the harder it is. After you’ve placed an event, you can turn the card over to get a link to Wikipedia for more information about the event. Win or lose, you are liable to learn something. A few people who’ve tried it note that 1. you don’t have to be good at this game to enjoy it, and 2. you can’t get any better at it by playing more. But it is addictive. I once managed to get a string of 15 events before missing one, but I’ve had a lot of failures, too.

The game is fairly new. Developer Tom J. Watson asks that any cards that don’t make sense be reported to Github. -via Metafilter
