Default The Wikipedia Game

For all I know, this may be something that already exists. But I have decided that it shall exist here.

The game is simple. Starting at point "A", describe the shortest path possible, using only click-through links within the article, to reach point "B".

Point A: PlanetSide

Point B: Garbage Pail Kids

Go.

There is a very similar wikipedia game. you choose a destination, say road atlanta, and click random article.

Due to a buzz not sure if related. We used to start at the article of the day and only click blue links for up to 16hrs+. Long nights in the armory were really boring. It led to some fun parts of wiki, like pegging.

I see this ending in me adapting some Dijkstra's algorithm code I have to searching wikipedia.

We used to do it while drunk, with time being the decider, rather than shortest path. 1v1 wikipedia races.

Because he lied, it's MMOFPS to baseball. There's no link to MMORPG on the PlanetSide page.

Ah, yes.

Savington has committed a foul, and forfeits his turn.
