App of the Month

There is yet another NYT game.  Yay!  and Yay?. Honestly, I already try to do my five before work starts - though I'm not always successful. 

At least this new one is only weekly. 

 ....and as far as I know, it's not in their game section, it just gets emailed to me each week.

The game is called Flashback. 

The way you play is, they start at a point in history with a year and then provide you with an event and you have to say if said event came before or after that initial time. 

As you go through the following seven clues, you place them in the timeline. 

So the greyed out box is the initial point. The upper white box is the clue where you will drag it to before or after 1948

Yay me!   .....but I still have seven more to do. 

Now I have three options on where to place the new clue.......and so on. 

I bungled the 1889 clue. I assumed 'retirement' became a thing after WWII. 

......then of course, are the stats 

Boo Hiss......

....and then breaks down stats for every clue. 

All in all, it's an ok way to spend like, 5 minutes.  Maybe if I had taken 6, I'd have done better.
