I have Historical Events and I just bought American History. They pair nicely together, except all American History dates are 1400s and after.

So the deck is a bit imbalanced. Anytime you draw an older card, like dinosaurs or forming the earth, the answer is pretty obvious. While newer dates are a fun challenge.

What Timeline set would you buy for the most ancient and prehistoric dates pre-1400s?

Discoveries and Diversity would be the sets you are looking for.

With Discoveries you do have to be a little careful because the cards are not clear if you are trying to place when something existed or when it was discovered. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I believe the way to tell what the card was asking for is if it has a live person or a skull in the background. What I do when I play is have someone else look at the answer side of the card. By the date they can let the person guessing know if it's a past date or a discovery date.

Inventions, Discoveries, and Historical Events are best for older history.
