Everything is Connected to Everything Else

Or EICTE as hazel puts it.

And now there’s a game about it ;)
Don’t miss the “hint” link on the top-right corner. Wikipedia and Google will help a lot.

This is basically a huge test on fast searching - there are so many categories that (almost) nobody will be familiar with all of them. The author encourages collaboration, but it is possible to advance well by just researching the main topics, and connections between known items.

Good luck ;)


  1. Holy cow, what an amusing game, Sir! ;)
    BS - Black Sheep
    “Magicians” time.

  2. Heya, Strider! I’m very pleasantly surprised to find you here :)
    Lol about BS :) Keep your band knowledge ready, you’re gonna need it!

    I reached the four corner clues (I haven’t opened all other words of course) but have little idea what to do with them. I can combine the first two to get something red, but it doesn’t combine well with the other clues. Will probably give up soon and look for some cheats online ;)

  3. Thanks a lot.
    Nice place you got here. :))

    Err… I already did. *blushes* I’m a filthy little cheater! lol
    After an hour of struggling, I gave up with trying to get the “Poker stars” answers.
    The “British bands” part wasn’t that hard to solve after all. :)

  4. P.S.By the way, rock garden> reminded me of “Peculiarities of the National Hunt in Wintertime”. Associations… :)

  5. No, I meant I will cheat for the final answer. I too did cheat for many of the regular words (but to compensate also worked hard to research unknown fields - did relatively well on both Poker and Baseball). I mean - come on! - Superman < --> Kill Bill. What kind of connection is this? There were lots like this one, which was really frustrating for me when I found out ;) But the author was surely right - no single human can solve this alone :)

    Have you got the four corners yet?

    Edit: Stone garden? Try this :)

  6. Yes, I have. With a little help from Google of course. :)
    Some of the connections are… unexpected indeed (Conan O’Brien Tarja Halonen for instance), yet it is a part of what
    makes the game interesting.

    Another puzzle? Awwwesome! :D

  7. Howdy! This article could not be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I’ll send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
