Alumni of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde have a new fun way to reminisce their fond memories of the college with Chronicles, a trivia card game which recalls the inclusive, innovative, and extraordinary stories of the institution.
The card game has been released as part of Benilde’s 30th anniversary celebration. It was inspired by Timeline, a popular historical card game about inventions, discoveries, historical events, and general interests.
The goal of the game is to determine who is the most knowledgeable among the players by correctly guessing the year when a particular milestone took place.
The base game includes 176 cards, divided into two 88-card sets. First half contains the history of the college between 1988 and 2010, while the second half features the breakthroughs from 2010 to 2018 for an added challenge.
“It is the story of Benilde. Chronicles is inviting you to build our own timeline. It can also be used as a remembrance on the story of Saint Benilde Romançon. It is fun to play with friends,” said DLS-CSB president Brother Dennis Magbanua FSC, who conceptualized the game together with Benilde board member Br. Michael Valenzuela, FSC and Center for Institutional Communication director Adriel Peña.
The original copies of the cards were hand-drawn by DLS-CSB alumna Alexandra Samonte.
Chronicles is available at unBOXed in De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in Malate, Manila.
