TypograFriday: five font games

Like type, but have have some free time on your hands? Long ago we introduced you to the great diversion, the Deep font game. Here’s five more.

The Rather Difficult Font Game. Hosted by iLT, lovely design and no time limit unlike the Deep game, this one is font-snobbery’s teatime test. There’s also an app store version.

Is it Ariel or Helvetica. Font ID test with only two fonts; shames you into learning the differences.

Ariel vs Helvetica When you tire of identifying the distinction, it’s time to move on to the streetfighter-style brawling game between the rival sans.


Cheese or Font. Sort of a one-note joke but I was surprised by how many I’d never heard of and guessed wrong on.fontgame_cheese

KERN for iPhone/iPod touch. Like Tetris meets The Eyeballing Game with letters. I know a few experts who’d love this… if it weren’t so close to what they’ve spent a zillion hours getting paid to do.
