Name That Tube


Flicking around the interweb main news stories and finding nothing but lying politicos, dying crop yields and economic slumps I thought ‘What we really need is a game to take our minds of the encroaching winter depression’, and Lo, here’s something suitably silly from the site Look For Longer. There are 75 tube stations hidden in the picture – I managed to identify about eight before the phone went and, like an easily distracted cat, forgot to come back to it after the call – but if you go to the site you can apparently win prizes, and if you’re daft enough to enter something like that it’s a safe bet they’ll hive off all your details and try to sell you tellys or something for the rest of your life. Fun, though. Double-click for a larger image.

    Okay, okay. This is Deep London, right? A sub-cat. of the ever popular Deep English.
    There is no way this Deep American lad has a chance, unless there’s a tube station for Bath(tub}. And that’s a one off for me. Deep dudu it is.

    Well, I got Elephant and Castle, Swiss Cottage, Shepherd’s Bush, Limehouse and King’s Cross, but I’d have to get out the system map for other names. It’s fun doing puzzles like this.
