"Find Regina!" Wikipedia Game

Recommended Posts

I've seen around the interwebs this little game that people play in forums. What you have to do is go to wikipedia, click random article, and then find whatever article (in this case, Regina's page) in the least amount of clicks possible. It's a little time waster if you ever get bored, and it's interesting to see what gets you there. (It doesn't have to be played specifically with Regina, but I figured I'd stick to the main topic of the forum. Go ahead and post results for other things too.)

After that, if you want, you can come back to this thread and post how many clicks it took to get you there, and what page you started on. Feel free to post what actual pages got you to Regina, but just keep in might that it might be more fun if the key pages were left out so as to make it more challenging for everyone else.

Enjoy!

My first try, I started on Lynne Rae Perkins, and it took me 13 clicks after that to get to Regina. I was not expecting the things I clicked on to lead me so astray. >.<

Gets repetitive once you find a country and then music.

I started out with a school in Kansahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Valley_School_Districts,

then I went to the 2000 census, then the United States, then the history of the Soviet Union (1982-1991), then a page about a movie made about communism in 1989,then communism (no, I do not believe Regina is a communist.), then the Soviet Union, then Freedom of Speech, then 2009 flu pandemic table April 2009, then 2009 flu pandemic in the United States by state, the New York City, then The Bronx, and finally a page with a list of people from the Bronx, which led me to Regina's page.

It was actually kind of fun and a great procrastination tool.

Thanks! Smiler
