    Anyone else seen this font kerning game?

    Came across this the other day. It's a kerning game for designers.
    http://type.method.ac
    Besides being an addictive game, it's actually interesting to see what the 'accurate' level of kerning for each of the different fonts would be.

    I work as a teaching assistant and I have used this in my classes. The students enjoy it and it has really helped them to understand the purpose behind kerning and how much better good kerning can make things look. I've seen a difference in their classwork since introducing this game. I also try to improve my score and use it often.

    My tutors used this a couple years ago to help us with kerning, really useful. Good way to learn some solid typefaces too

    I got a 100 for a couple, which of course made my competitive streak come out. So then I played it for far too long. ADDICTIVE LIKE THE CRACK!

    I was always taught to look at the work upside down to ignore what the brain sees as letters and concentrate on the shapes and white-space.
