… is a fabulous game that 561 an I have just invented. We are hoping that it will make us super-rich.

Roughly speaking, the rules are very simple:

  1. Start with a wikipedia article (i.e. [Jerusalem artichoke])
  2. Read the article in the order it is printed until you come to a word/name/place/concept with which which you are not immediately familiar (i.e. [Samuel de Champlain] ) . At that point stop reading, click on the link and start reading the new article from the start.
  3. Continue until you complete an article from start to finish without clicking on any links

Prizes are awarded for

  • Most completely random article you finish on
  • Finishing first
  • ..on an article which wasn’t a stub
  • .. which you wrote/contributed to..

and so on.
