A new London Underground game has got commuters in the capital absolutely hooked – with people struggling to hit more than 50 per cent of the entire map.
Created by Benjamin Tran Dinh, the Metro Memory Game has had over 100,000 plays since it was released on Friday.
It challenges people to put the names to all 416 stations on the tube, the Overground and the Elizabeth Line, and it’s almost impossible to complete.
Speaking to the BBC, Tran Dinh, a software engineer, said he created the game because he is “really interested in trains and maps”.
The game was released on X, formerly Twitter, on Friday morning, and Tran Dinh thought his predominately French following would not pick up on the game, but it turned out the “demand for the game has been crazy almost overnight”.
He told the BBC he chose the London Underground as it “has some of the most memorable and recognisable station names and is one of the most iconic transport networks in the world”.
Despite studying in London almost 10 years ago, Tran Dinh said his knowledge of the Tube network “is not very good” and he is yet to the play the game himself.
He is now creating the same game for the metro networks of Berlin and New York City.
