The Gregory Brothers 'Wikiwars' Game Tests Internet Know-How

If you are incredibly skilled at starting off your online searching on one Wikipedia page and then randomly ending up browsing something totally unrelated, then you may want to compete in the Gregory Brothers 'Wikiwars' game.

The Internet-savvy duo, made famous by autotuning Antoine Dobson's news interview into 'The Bed Intruder Song,' have created the game to test one's ability to navigate through a search engine using only related hyperlinks found within the site.

The first round, for example, saw contestants starting off on a page about GIFs and needing to end up at a site about broccolini.

Using only the links found on each page to navigate around the site would certainly be difficult and it not only tests the competitor's ability to problem solve but also their desire to randomly peruse vast quantities of content.
