Those who love all things fonts tend to be type-A, architectural breeds attracted to each letters' crisp structure and the methodical beauty of a printed page or poster. Indeed, I am myself fiercely devoted to "Georgia."

But, while there has been much attention paid to the infamous Helvetica species, the rest of the fonts family have been dismissively ignored. No more! There is now a brilliant web game dedicated to the larger typographic universe, that will still appeal to those prim font folk.

In fact, I have yet to find a better way to pass the time on the Acela train from New York (other than the cheese plate and a half-bottle of wine) than by playing this aesthetically pleasing (and ridiculously, surprisingly difficult) font game.

Have a go, here.
