Alright Bay Area, nearly every day we hear a passenger on BART or Muni act like they're hip to all the stops. Well here's your chance to test your BART knowledge, San Francisco.

James Offer, a London-based gamification and data visualization designer, created a word puzzle game based on our beloved BART. San Francisco Flummox, the game, offers players 60 seconds to unscramble words, which, once arranged properly, spell out the names to BART stations. The awesome thing is that it works great on mobile devices. So, if you're train is late, or you feel like killing time, the game is in the palm of your hands.

When you play, however, be sure your fingers are quick and accurate, because there is no spell check on this one -- and the clock is ticking.
