Blood Wikipedia Game

Post by Daedalus » Oct 7th, 2011, 13:17

I am very bored at work. Let's play a game!

The rules are as follows:

1) Proceed to Wikipedia
2) Click on "Random Article" on the left
3) Once having reached your random article, the objective of the game is to find the Blood (blood itself is fine, don't worry about the disambiguation step, although if you're supremely lucky you might get a direct link to the game) article, but you're only allowed to navigate via links contained within the article, for example: If you had a lucky roll and got Anatomy, a possible path would be Anatomy --> Human Anatomy --> Blood
4) The person with the shortest or cleverest route wins, with results to be published in December 2023
5) Try not to cheat and reroll. A lengthy journey could be entertaining
5) You may play as many times as you wish

I'll start:

Groß Disnack --> Germany --> Catholic Church --> Real presence of Christ in the Eucharist --> Eucharist in the Catholic Church --> Blood of Christ --> Blood

Go, go, go!

I like the way you went across part of the religious spectrum only to end up at physiology.

Another (pretty successful) attempt:

Calculator spelling --> breast (from 8008135) --> artery --> blood vessel --> Blood

My journey had rack. That's got to count for extra points.
