Rag Time typography game

Graphic designers might enjoy wasting a few minutes on Rag Time, a game that challenges players to even out paragraphs of ragged text while racing against the clock. You can't use a mouse to position your cursor, though, so I found it frustrating and kept running out of time! Give it a try right here.

or, you can deselect the "hyphenate" button in Indesign -- either way, this is pretty entertaining

True, but some lines will still break in unattractive or illogical ways and require manual adjustment. Though with soft returns, not hard returns like in this game.

Goodness, a busman's holiday for me. As a typographer I spend my life doing just this! Its much more satisfying in real life though when you can navigate with a mouse. Not enough time with this game, but a great idea. x

Wow, it`s hard! It took me quite a while to get used to not using the mouse!

Fun and informative! Good explaination at the beginning of the game.

I actually finished one! Prost! Got a low score, though. Schiesser.
