Akin to pinning all of the cities you’ve visited on a world map, “What’s your Subway Number?” allows you to visually quantify your worldliness—or in this case your “New Yorkness”—by accounting for every subway stop you’ve stepped foot in. The game is the clever creation of digital designer Mike Solomon, and breaks straphangers down into four categories: Rich Tourist, Junior Commuter, Official Resident, and NYC Lifer.

Solomon told Gothamist that inspiration for the tool came to him when he was bored on a commute and began examining the subway map. “I was looking at all those far-out stations and realized they all sounded so alien to me. It made me realize how there’s a lot of the map that I’ve never even thought about, let alone been to. So I thought it would be fun to plot everywhere I’d been on a map.”

If you happen to score shamefully low, the big plus to Solomon’s app is that you can save your results and add on later as you expand your horizons.
