    A simple, casual game that doesn't need a HOF or a leaderboard.

    Using the blue hyperlinks, you must hop between pages, from a starting point to a finishing point.

    For Example
    Ayrton Senna to Pablo Picasso
    Ayrton Senna - Nurburgring - ADAC - Nazi Germany - Spanish Civil War - Pablo Picasso

    Using the English version of Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) someone posts a starting page and a finishing page, and people reply to the thread with the shortest route they took (fewest clicks).


    A few rules to stop it being super-easy
    You are not allowed to click on a current country page at any time (eg: Serbia, Trinidad and Tobago, Nepal etc), but other pages affiliated, or of former countries are allowed (eg: Yugoslavia, Flag of Burundi etc).
    Don't edit the page, that really is cheating.


    Want a starting point? How about Yoda to Doritos

    I tried to find a tough one, but then completely forgot about Top Gear links :D. You can connect anything through Top Gear celebrity list.
    City links are also helpful here, my route is one step shorter, and starts with the Paris autoshow.

    Hm, no link to Paris in the Paris Motor Show article, was I dreaming?

    Still, you can remove a step by picking e.g. Joss Stone from the Top Gear celebrities list, who has a direct link to the Jazz article.
