The four games range from visual puzzles to trivia competitions. Each neighborhood gets 100 points for a win, with the leaderboard updated in real time at (North Beach, Tenderloin and Mission are at the front of the pack currently, with Hunters Point, Hayes Valley and Noe Valley bringing up the rear.) The competition will last for two months, with the winning neighborhood getting a concert with OK Go. Via PSFK. Photo via.
