Typewar: a font game

Kill a few minutes before lunch at Typewar by identifying the typeface for any given letter. If you know your fonts, you might get bored quickly since the two choices often look nothing alike and only a few typefaces are represented. Then again, an L in Helvetica Neue and Verdana look mighty similar... As you continue to advance through the levels, more fonts are unlocked.

I think the traffic from your site had overloaded the server. haha

Hmm. It worked fine a minute ago, but I just got stuck on a J and the next screen wouldn't load.

Oh! Just got a message saying the servers are overloaded! Ha!

I won't load them any further... I'd lose the war, anyway. ;)

I suspect that if you can overcome the boredom and hang in there, it gets harder. Maybe.
