Michael Jantzen, a Washington, D.C. programmer and photographer whose photos I’ve published here, sent me a link to his Chicago ‘L’ hangman game he created after Transportation Camp there last weekend. (I went to Transportation Camp in San Francisco in March 2011.) The game features the Chicago Transit Authority’s 143 rail stations.
Some are going to be really easy, like “87TH” in the screenshot above. I guess I should have refreshed the page and taken a screenshot of a more difficult station!

I love the random congratulatory messages, which take on irony when you get Sox-35th correct and it tells you, “Go Cubs!”
I must not ride the train often enough, or pay attention to station names. On the first game I played, the clue was at _ E S T E _ _ N. It took me one more miss to guess Western!
Great game. The CTA should make use of it at their stations or on train tracker.
I think it may also be fun on advertisements on train cars and buses, much like those ads McDonald’s has to advertise breakfast.
