The Wikipedia Game!

Postby croman74 » January 28th, 2009, 7:06 pm

Me and my friends came up with this one at school.
Go to wikipedia and choose any starting page. Then you get 5 clicks to try to get as off topic as possible from the first page.
Here's an example:
Start: Science Olympiad
To: Ontario
To: Treaty of Paris (1763)
To: Roman Catholic Church
To: Eamon Duffy
End: Dundalk (a town in ireland)

EDIT: We added a new rule. You have to start where the last person ended.

That was tough. It seemed like everything I clicked on had some close relation to the topic before it.
