Internet-Based Board Game Linknotize Is Like Six Degrees of Wikipedia

Sorry, Kevin Bacon.

Not only can you play a lot of board games on your phone instead of with a board—no matter how many luddites complain that everyone is just tapping away on their phones—but Linknotize is a physical board game that you actually play by… tapping away on your phone.

The goal is to connect two random topics to each other by following links in your online encyclopedia of choice.

Then you see who can make the connection by following the fewest links and lord your superior Internet skills over your friends.

You can get the game directly from the Linknotize site for $24.99, and all that time you’ve spent getting sucked down weird Internet rabbit holes will finally be worth it. This is the moment you’ve been training for.
