First assemble the challenging, big & colorful 500-piece jigsaw, then test your knowledge by identifying the 80 or more newsworthy celebrities, political figures and icons from the worlds of sports, science and the arts, each of whom played an important role in the year or decade. An I.D. key is included.

The early 1980's were marked with a global economic recession and increased Cold War tensions, and former film star and California Governor Ronald Reagan was elected 40th President of the United States on the promise of change. By the end of the decade, Ronald Reagan had instituted economic policies known and Reaganomics, and the Cold War ended with the fall of communism with the help of cooperation between Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev. The Space Shuttle program starts its 30-year exploration of space, and Apple released its first personal computer in 1984. Famine in Ethiopia prompts several simultaneous fundraising concerts known as Live Aid, broadcast internationally to an audience of 1.9 billion people. Walkman cassette players play New Wave music from the likes of Blondie, Cyndi Lauper, and Culture Club. Shows like Dallas, Magnum, P.I., and 21 Jump Street are just a few popular television series, while E.T., Star Wars, and Top Gun are blockbuster hits. In sports perhaps no event is bigger than the "Miracle on Ice," when the 1980 US Olympic hockey team defeats the Soviet hockey team for the gold medal. Through and through, the eighties was a decade full of people, places, and events that changed the course of human history forever.
