Currently the game has these fancy features:

  • hidden selection of a secret from predefined list on page reload
  • display predefined secrets as images
  • user can enter a question by selecting a property and entering a value (directly search wikidata)
  • user can enter a SPARQL query using the expert mode
  • query is passed on to wikidata and the answer is displayed
  • user can enter a guess to the solution field that searches wikidata and checks if the answer is correct
