    Default Name That Historical Event

    GENERAL RULES

    - One person posts a picture/question/riddle with any details the poster feels are necessary.
    - Everyone else tries to guess the picture/question posted or solve the riddle, whilst providing some details about their guess.
    - The person who guessed correctly then posts their own picture/question/riddle within 24 hours.
    - It is customary, though not an obligation, that the person who guessed correctly gets reputation from the original poster of the picture/question/riddle (or from another player/Gaming Staff if the OP cannot).
    - Anybody can take the turn if a picture/question/riddle isn't posted within 24 hours or if the person who guessed the last picture/question/riddle says that anybody can take his turn.
    - People are supposed to play fairly and to respect the other players and to do their best to ensure that the game keeps flowing. Blatant cheating, lack of respect, lack of input and so on and on might lead to the disqualification of the offending player for that round, this at the exclusive discretion of other players and/or Gaming Staff

    - Flinn


    A photo is posted of a historical event, the person who identifies it is verified by the poster who then reps them. They then post a photo of their own and the cycle repeats itself.

    I'll start this off with an easy one

    I can't really see it but I will randomly guess the Hindenburg disaster.

    Yes, the second Defenestration of Prague, 1618. One of history's more elegantly named repetitive incidents, something of a trademark of Prague politics for a while there.

    +rep and you're go.
