The Wikipedia Game

Post by Pig Nash on Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:53 pm

This one should be fun.

The poster above you lists a Wikipedia article.
You go to the random article page on the main page of the English Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
Then you have to get to the target page only clicking links.
The goal isn't a certain number of clicks, just getting back.
Then list how you got from the random page to the target article and post a new target article for the next poster to find.

Example:
Poster A wrote:Jupiter

Poster B wrote:List of tallest buildings in Mumbai>List of tallest structures in Italy>Italy>Space science>Unmanned Space Missions>Jupiter

Any questions?

I'll start:

Madison Square Garden

Cool game! I'll give it a whirl.

Inky > Inky Moore > Buffalo, New York > New York City > Madison Square Garden

That took shorter than I expected - guess I got lucky with the beginning page of "Inky"?!? (wtf?)

Okay, here is the next target: Transcendentalism.

Wow! Good one, Piglet! I have never seen the movie - but read the book a few years back - love that book.

Okay, next topic: Zheng He.

Glycerophosphoinositol inositolphosphodiesterase > H2O > William Faulkner > American literature > Kurt Vonnegut

Wow! Who would have thought it would only take a few clicks from glycerophosphoinositol inositolphosphodiesterase to get to Vonnegut! (I thought I was screwed).

Next: Magnum Rolle
