Sometimes when I've fallen into a Wikipedia hole and decide I want to look up something else, I challenge myself to get there purely by navigating through the links in articles. Wikispeedia makes this into a game: you get given two articles, and have to connect them in the fewest number of clicks. There's a fair few versions of this sort of thing, including The Wiki Game, which is available for mobile devices too (http://thewikigame.com/), and Linknotize, which makes it more of a group activity (http://www.linknotize.com/). Both have their relative methods, but I Hunted Wikispeedia instead because it's a) no frills, and b) the data was used for a research project, which I appreciated.
