An educational Card Game about Fonts
The card game »TRIFONT« is not only a learning game, that covers the classification by DIN 16518 and Willberg. It’s more an entertaining game with elements of luck and tactics, that can and shall be enjoyed by font-experts as well as ordinary persons. Gamers, that are familiar with fonts, the DIN-standardisation and Willberg will have much fun with the game and especially persons, that only knew the DIN-standardisation and never heard of Willberg will mostly benefit from the game’s mechanics.
Also it can be very interesting to take a closer look to the single letters and discover the big and small differences in one group. Usually we don’t take that much time for exploring our fonts while reading normal texts. Last but not least this game is the (font-based) clarification of the necessary denial of traditions in the purpose of adapting to current needs. If you’re interested in purchasing the game, please contact me via e-mail.
