Which Came First?

Some inventions happened just when you expect they did, but many came surprisingly early—or late! Which Came First? challenges you to pick the earlier invention in each pair. There are four rounds of Which Came First? in all—each round has five questions, and each correct answer is worth 10 points. Start playing! Get them all right and you will be crowned "Invention Know-It-All."
