My boyfriend informed me of a game they play using Wikipedia they call “6 Clicks to Hitler”. I found it hilarious. The game is simple:
- Start with a random wiki page.
- Click any link within the articles.
- Get to Hilter‘s wiki page in six clicks or less.
I tried it out myself.
Söderköping Process > European Union > East Germany > Poland > Nazi Germany > HITLER!
5 Clicks to Hitler!
Let’s try again…
Random page is: 1931–32 Palestine League
1931–32 Palestine League > British Police > United Kingdom > German Empire > Adolf Hitler
FOUR clicks to Hitler!
Try it yourself!
