More Info:
  • INSTRUCTIONS: This quiz follows the rules of a standard word ladder, but uses 4-digit numerals to express years instead. For each successive clue (rung), only one digit in the answer-year will change, and never in the same position for consecutive answers. For example, "Columbus discovers America" - 1492 ... ”Clinton elected” – 1992 ... “Czechoslovakia splits” – 1993
