A game for font nerds

Alright all you font nerds out there, this game is for you. What do you do in the game? You practice your kerning.

Wikipedia defines kerning as ” the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font, usually to achieve a visually pleasing result.”

In other words, act like a typesetter and properly adjust the spacing of each letter in a word. The closer your letters are to the correct spacing, the higher your score. That sounds kind of dumb, doesn’t it? But it’s surprisingly interesting.

I got an 83, but I choked on the last one (an 8!?!), so I think that threw my average off a little bit. How did you do? Leave your score in the comments.
