We have added a letter before each event, so it is easy for you to list 'letter + year' combinations as your answer.
Remember to mention the name of your game world (e.g. COM-6 Rapid Rail) so we know where to send your prize. Example:
"A - 1912
B - 1994
C - ...
COM-6 Rapid Rail"
⚠️Only answers with their game world mentioned are eligible to win.
10 players with the most correct answers (letter + year) will win:

If we have more than 10 players with the same amount of correct answers, we will start a prize raffle.
Please note, you can only participate on one domain, and only once. This thread is moderated, and all your answers will be published once the event is over.
You can send in your answer until Sunday, March 22 23:59 GMT+1
