Click That Hood

New game tests your knowledge of Toronto neighbourhoods

Put your Toronto knowledge and Internet browser to the test! Unless you're using some sort of antiquated version of Internet Explorer, you can play a new online game that measures just how well you know the neighbourhoods in your city.

Code for America has just unveiled Click that 'Hood Toronto, a game that challenges players to identify various Toronto neighbourhoods off a map. The simple version of the game offers the names of 20 random neighbourhoods and ask challengers to geographically identify them in the shortest among of time. Indeed, you're not a true Torontonian unless you can find Rockcliffe-Smyth, Blake Jones, or L'Amoreaux on a city map.

If you really want a challenge (or prolonged procrastination tool), you can try out the full game, which calls for identifying all 139 neighbourhoods. Similar games have already popped up for cities such as Atlanta, Miami, Zurich, and Vancouver.
