8. Wikipedia games http://thewikigame.com/ The Wikipedia Game- go to Wikipedia and select some random article. Then, you find a link on the page and go to the article it links to. Continue this process for long enough and you’ll eventually end up at some article which you would never believe to have been connected to the original post! Now try to have other people see if they can figure out how to get from one article to the other. First one to get from one to the other, using only internal Wikipedia links gets a point. Also, 2 bonus points are awarded for getting there using a quicker(less intermediate pages)route. This is assuming the author of the challenge is honest on how he got from one to the other. Honor system people! Most points wins! The game stops whenever you decide it does eg Wikipedia Challenge #1: (Name of Article) Start: Elvis Presley End: Queen Elizabeth II also http://www.wikiaata.com/pages/guest#Home and http://webtrends.about.com/od/wiki/a/wiki_game.htm
