[GAME] The Six Degrees of Skrillex

Richard
Roadie

Hey all!

 

We were thinking that this board could do with some good clean fun. So to get things kicking off, here's a game we've been playing in the office lately.

 

The aim is to get from any artist in Spotify to Skrillex using only the Related Artists in the fewest number of steps.

For instance, here's Coldplay (just right-click and select 'copy HTTP link' to get the link):

 

1. Coldplay > The Killers

2. The Killers > MGMT

3. MGMT > La Roux

4. La Roux > Calvin Harris

5. Calvin Harris > Deadmau5

6. Deadmau5 > Skrillex

 

Credit to Sam for figuring that one out.

 

Think you've got a quicker route? Give it a go.

 

Get it in 6 or less and feel free to suggest a new starting band.

 

Good luck..

Simple.

Pretty good so far, but I think you've had it easy.

 

How about taking on the challenge of relating Rick Moranis to Skrillex? Good luck!

I've got it in 15. Again, not worth posting.

Richard, can you do it in less?

After thorough investigation I have decided that Rick Moranis - Skrillex is simply not possible in 6 steps. I'll glady be proved wrong though.

 

So the floor is open for a new contender. Anyone want to suggest a challenger? (Non-employees very welcome)

Hey,

 

We had hoped that this would just be a fun game that people would like to join us in playing. We're only moderators so we don't know much about coding apps I'm afraid.

 

But we are pleased to say that a Preview version of the new Android app is available at http://www.spotify.com/download/previews/ - give it a go and let us know what you think.

Giving Cascada a 'Skrillex Score' of 4. Easy.
