Find Rock Band: A Wikipedia Game

So I was derping around on Wikipedia and I got this great idea for a game, based on other games I've played involving Wikipedia in the past. The goal of the game is simple: Find the article for the Rock Band video game on Wikipedia, starting from a random page. The rules are simple:
  1. You must start from a random page using the "Random article" link on the left.
  2. You must navigate using only links in the article itself. "See also" sections are okay.
  3. Using your browser's find function (Ctrl+F) is cheating!
There are a couple ways to score. Either the number of articles you had to navigate through, or the amount of time spent navigating. Both are fun and are by no means the only ways to score your results.

I have found one good strategy is to find an article for a geographic location, then find the section in that article for culture/music, and there will perhaps be a band that was in Rock Band (such as the Beatles). Since music is such a large and broad topic, it shouldn't take too long to navigate all the way to the Rock Band page. The most articles I've had to go through so far was 7.

So have fun, go nuts, and let's see some results!


  • Random sent me to Zacharias Dolendo
    from there I clicked:
    University of Oxford
    Lost (TV series)
    Charlie Pace

    Once I found Lost I knew I had it. Neat game.

    Škoda Auto -> Automotive industry -> Boston Consulting Group -> Boston (city) -> List of people from Boston -> Bang Camaro -> Bang Camaro (album) -> Rock Band (video game)

    Fun little game. I'm surprised it took me eight pages with what I thought were a couple close links beginning with Boston Consulting Group.

    Sadly, Alex Rigopulos and Eran Ergozy of Harmonix are not on the list of people from Boston.
