Recently Mashable created a list of the best font games. We tried them out and narrowed the list of 18 down to our top 3.

3. Coming in third place is a printable game that is great to have around the office. Font Spotter is a flash card-esque game that the whole office can participate in and trust us… it gets heated!

1. And in first place we have Shape Type. This game isn’t particularly hard at first, but trust us it gets intense. (and is by far the most addictive game on the list.)
