3 Degrees of Wikipedia
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time on Wikipedia. It may not be always accurate, but it covers everything under the sun. One can spend years trying to learn everything Wikipedia has to offer (if that is even possible). I’d personally settle for remembering the articles that I have read already. That’s what 3 Degrees of Wikipedia is designed to do. It’s a brain stimulating game that challenges your ability to find connections between Wikipedia pages. It is not as easy as it sounds.
3 Degrees of Wikipedia is based on a very simple concept. All you have to do is connect two Wikipedia pages through their links. As you tackle these types of puzzles, you get a better sense for the articles you have read. Forgetting what you have read will be a tad bit more difficult when you put these types of connections together. The game has a number of puzzles for you to choose from. Some are easy and some can make you sweat.
This app does have a social aspect to it. You can create and submit your very own puzzles to challenge other players. Other players get to rate your puzzles. You can always create problems for yourself to master the topic you have just read about.
3 Degrees is Twitter and Facebook friendly too. You can earn badges, making the game a whole lot more fun. I would love to be able to make even more complicated puzzles with this game. Having the ability to come up with two random words and somehow build a puzzle around them would be nice. Nevertheless, 3 Degrees of Wikipedia is very well designed and a whole lot of fun. Who knew Wikipedia could be so addictive!
