Competitive Wikipedia Searching Makes For An Oddly Compelling Sport [Video]

If you’re young enough that Wikipedia existed while you were in highschool, you’ve probably played WikiWars in a library computer lab. The game is simple: Two users start on the same page and attempt to be the first to navigate to a second random page using nothing but internal links. It’s a blast. This video by thegregorybrothers shows a match in progress and acts not only as an informative tutorial for would-be WikiWarriors, but also an amazing proof of concept for WikiWars as a televised sport with commentary. While it’s surprisingly fun to watch, it’s obviously better to play. So grab a friend, start at “string beans” and get to “alternating current.” Ready? GO!
