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, "Defeat of Spanish Armada" - 1588 ... ”George H. W. Bush wins presidential election” – 1988 ... “Chernobyl disaster” – 1986
