Throughout this theme, each challenge will be tagged (#) with the decades that it covers. 
As you visit the decades, you can collect badges. 
There are multiple badges for each decade. 
You can collect one badge each time you successfully visit that decade. A successful visit is considered 'completing' a challenge. For the purposes of this tour, a challenge is considered complete when you have earned one badge (other than a participation badge). 
For challenges that span several decades, you have successfully visited a second decade when you have earned the next badge. 
If a one month challenge spans several decades, you may claim a badge for each decade covered, even if you only complete one level. 
Badges may be claimed in any order.
