Default The wikipedia game

Has any one every played this before?

Basically someone picks a random word, then you go to wikipedia and press random article and from there you have to find your way to the random word that was picked earlier using only links on the page your currently on.

So to start off...(looks at textbook on desk)... Environmental science!

I'll run through my first attempt

Clicked random article: Dutching
1. Dutch Book
2. Coherence
3. Mutually exclusive events
4. Qualitatitve data
5. Scientific research
6. Natural science
7. Earth science
8. Environmental Science

So it took me 8 steps, anyone think they can beat me

Tomorrow i wil annouce the winner and they can pick a new word, NOW GO!
