The NY Times has just unveiled a new game called Flashback, where you have to put eight historical events in chronological order.

They say they will be creating new versions weekly, at least for the next couple of months.  That link is just to the first game – it’s unclear if they will develop one link to all of them (UPDATE: you can find them all here).

It’s a nice game, though not a particularly original one.  Brainpop has had a similar game for quite a while, and WikiTrivia, Mr. Nussbaum’s American or World History Timeline – the Game!, and Chrono all pre-date this Times version.
