Now THIS is my kind of game

Font Game

Sometimes when there’s no work to be done (or if there’s tedious work that you can’t bring yourself to do), we look to games. It’s okay, you can admit it. There are many games out there to choose from; stick figure games, rag doll games, jelly guy- people- character games… So, what’s the best game suited for you?

For people who have a bit of an obsession with typography, this game will fulfill your font mania well. The Rather Difficult Font Game has about 34 fonts that you must identify by picking one of the multiple answers below. The higher the score, the more obsessed you are! Enjoy!
