New Game

From Tigerhawk, who calls it Six Degrees of Hitler

Here is the task set before you:

1) Go to Wikipedia.
2) Click any random link on there.
3) You have five clicks to reach Hitler's article.

GO!

Varying levels of difficulty.

Easy Mode: Any links

Nightmare Mode: No Country Links

Hell Mode: No Country or Date links

My first tries, starting with my last wikipedia lookup:
Colin Renfrew, Proto-Indo-Europeans, Aryan Race, Adolph Hitler.

From today's wikipedia front page: Waitaha Penguin, Proceedings of the Royal Society, Human Biology, Freiherr von Blomberg, Adolph Hitler.

Have a go at it.

Eastern imperial eagle--Heraldry--Roman Catholic Church--World War II---Adolph Hitler

not sure if the RCC would fall under "country" or not. They do have Vatican City, after all.

Now make it harder. You can't use WWII as your next-to-last, because it's too easy to get to.
