What are your top public transit pet peeves? Is it missing your transfer? Is it the manspreading passenger next to you? Or is it the mysterious puddle on the only available seat? How about this: have you ever taken the train to the wrong airport? If any of this sounds familiar—and if you know how to play Crazy Eights—there’s a new card game just for you. It’s called “Loop: The Elevated Card Game” from the company Transit Tees, and it reflects everyday life on the ‘L.’ Morning Shift talks to Transit Tees game designer Tom LaPlante, and brand manager Katherine Ginensky about the story behind the game (and some of the CTA mishaps that didn’t make the deck).
