Wikipedia '7 clicks to Hitler' game.

Objective

Players (one or more) start on the same randomly selected article, and must navigate to another pre-selected target article, solely by clicking links within each article. The goal is to arrive at the target article in the fewest clicks (articles), or the least time. The single-player Wiki Game, known as WikiraceWikispeediaWikiLaddersWikiClick, or WikiWhack, involves reducing one's previous time or number of clicks.

Setup

  1. Use the random article link in the navigation box to or have someone else (see procedure 1 for more information) select two random articles. One is the start article and the other is the target article.
  2. Navigate all players' browsers to the start article.
  3. Purge the history folder of the web browsers.

Procedures

  1. The random selection of pages must be performed by someone other than the player, that is, either an impartial overseer (i.e. referee) or an opponent. Of note, the latter option tends to breed a fun competitiveness between players, where one player tries to pick the most "random" (read: tangential) wiki-links for his/her opponent.
  2. A close tally must be kept of the number of clicks used by a player; all selections must be accounted for. Whoever has the fewest clicks wins. The browser history can be used to determine number of articles / clicks.
  3. A round in the Wiki Game can be played at one computer terminal, where players take turns, or at multiple computers simultaneously. In the latter option, a "session" begins immediately after everyone loads their randomized Starting Page and ends when the last person returns to his/her Homing Page. NOTE: It is our experience that rounds with a session consisting of several people require both referees and cooperation between opponents to make sure all are treated fairly.
  4. After each round, the history folder of the web browser needs to be purged.

 

  • The game can also be played by seeing who can get to the designated page first, regardless of the number of clicks.
