Wiki-nteering

October 15th, 2006

I’ve made up a fun new game to play on Wikipedia, called Wiki-nteering. First, you decide on an article that’s the target (let’s say the orienteering page). Then you hit the ‘Random Page’ button, and try to find your way to the target page using the fewest clicks possible. You can only use the main article text – you can’t use the main menu, and you can’t use the category or link box links.

For instance:

(OK, that was a pretty easy one. I didn’t cheat, honest! And to clarify, ‘See Also’ links are OK, just not the ones like you get at the bottom of James Bond, among many others).

Another run:

Hours of fun!
