Predict the year game (will for future predictions)

Choose one of the sentences below and secretly write what year you think it will happen. Read out the sentence to your partner, and they can make one guess what year you have written down. If they are incorrect, tell them something else you think will happen in that year, either from the list below or from your imagination or knowledge. Continue with one hint and then one guess until your partner guesses the year. Does your partner agree with your predictions?
