1st Round Paint.NET Winner: Cazaron idk if David cheated

2nd Round Jimi Hendrix

Ok, So i know this forum is already bloated with games and the like so if no-one plays then let it slide into the sea of off-topic threads. I made this game up then found out its already been done, luckily not on this forum.

Aim

To go from a random page in Wikipedia to a predetermined page in the least amount of link clicks and back buttons.

How to play.

1) Got to Wikipedia.org and go to a random article

2) From that page keep pressing links until you get to the Jimi Hendrix Wikipedia page.

NOTE: You MUST count how many links you click

3) Post your score plus the url of the page that Random Page took you too.

Rules:

1) One link click = 1 point

2) One Go Back/Back Button or any button that takes to to a previous page on your webrowser = 2 points

3) The LESS points the better

4) The links you use MUST relate to the article, that means no just going to the Categories links

Example

Random Page: Robert Wentworth Little

Score: 10

OPTIONAL: You can post your strategy if you like.

Some Tips

- ctrl+F is your friend! Finding something on a large page is made much easier with the find function.

- If you, like me, forget to count you can always open up your history and count, but it wont be accurate because of the back buttons and stuff.

- Be extra careful of which links you click. For example, something like coastal California and California can lead to different pages and stuff up your link count.

- Study the page.

- Have Fun!

2 points. :-)

I was logged in. So I got Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges (?!), clicked my link in the top right, then clicked Paint.NET.

I win.

(I cheated)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
