Schätzen Sie mal! is a series of knowledge or guessing games. Each set contains 180 thematic cards with questions on one side, and the answer (always a year) on the other side.
The game lasts 10 rounds. In each round, a card is drawn and players have to write down a span of years in which they think the event described on the card took place.
So the game is not about knowing the exact year, but guessing in which span of years the event took place.
The player who gives the shortest time spans that include the event gains points 3 points, the second 2 points and the third 1 point.
After the 10th round, the player with the highest score is the winner.
