A fun idea I saw on another site - head over to Wikipedia and hit random article. Done it? Good - your job is to navigate to Mario's Wikipedia page (this one here) only by clicking on links leading to other articles and thus making your way to Mazza's page. An example would be "Osaka, Japan -> Japan -> Nintendo -> Mario". Make sure to post the route you take!

The person who does it in the fewest clicks gets to suggest the next destination page for this game after a couple of days of us all trying.

I'll start with my attempt:

Ooh, fun, I'll have a go at this later. I like doing the similar thing where you just press the first link in the text and inevitably go back to philosophy.

No joke. This is the exact route I took, starting with a random article.

Jesus, Jas. No idea how it took that long after getting France on the board!

I'll close this round tomorrow at 8pm. Two days per round seems fair, right? Andy's still the man to beat at 4 clicks!

As far as I'm concerned, Cappa has won this thread. I'll have a go though; how can I get to Mario from Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Ras?

Surprisingly easy:

Cappa won in my heart, for sure. And it seems as though we've got a tie! No idea how I'm going to decide a winner.

For a second there, I was like, "Ras? I know we've got a 'mas' and a 'Jas', but who's 'Ras'?" No

I don't think I was paying enough attention to the links, when I seen empire of Japan I was relieved.

I tried to think outside the box which in the end took me a lot longer than I thought it would.

Seeing as we've got a tie, I'm going to evoke my rights as thread host and suggest the next round.

Ladies and gentleman, please click on random article and make your way to Lara Croft's Wikipedia page.

Or is it 5 as Jay says he did his in 7 but I count 8 clicks or doesn't the last one count?

Alright, David Dodds (fantasy football analyst). I actually got pretty lucky here.

David Dodds' Fantasy Football sounds like a forgotten sim from the early 2000s. Laughing

My intention was to go from Master Race to PC but clearly they aren't the master race after all.

Thought I'd bring this one back too today.

A reminder of the rules: click "random article" on Wikipedia and try to get to a target article in the fewest clicks.

This edition: Sonic the Hedgehog!
