You think you know everything about San Francisco. You know every alley in the city like the back of your hand.

A new web game, created by the relentlessly helpful nerds at Code for America, called "Click that 'hood!" seeks to answer all (well, most) of those questions by putting users though a rigorous timed trial of identifying each neighborhood in the city.
