Have a go here (http://ajax.sayitaintslow.com/fontgame/)

I managed a paltry 14 out of 34.

19/34. Whee.

"You scored 22 points out of 34"
Anyone more retentive?

15/34. I did well with the decorative and highly stylized fonts. Not so well with the seven or eight that all looked like Times.

I gave up when after 10 of them I only had 1 :(

I managed 17 out of 34. It's been too long since I looked at my fonts.

Glad there was no money involved.:D

A mere 19 here, and I thought I were a fontoholic. :o

But a really cool idea! But way too much of these halfdead designer fonts.;)

more because I eliminated bolds and italics etc

17/34, and I got comic sans wrong :( (or at least I thought it was comic sans...)

I got 16, and i'm really surprised.

My only defense for such a low score, is that most of the fonts in the game were Adobe fonts. I've been using TrueType fonts for over 10 years. Many TTF fonts are bastardized versions of Adobe fonts and thus have their own names.

The bulk of the Sans-Serif fonts are ones I've never used, so I could only guess at them. Some were obvious, but very few.

Oh, well... :|

14. At least I knew to correct a colleague recently that said "Veranda" instead of "Verdana".

23 out of 34. According to the site, that was average? I admit I used to do a LOT of type matching, but some of them were lucky guesses.

To my benefit, I guessed a few right.
Also to my benefit, I am a fulltime prepress artist.
To my detriment, I somehow double-clicked a couple, blowing my chances.

20 with quite a few guesses/process of elimination

I got 32 just now.

When I first tried that quiz a few weeks ago I think I got 25.

It involves quite a bit of luck based on what you're familiar with and what style of fonts you like, because some of the fonts appearing are not all that standard.

I was surprised to see that the average is 23, though; I wouldn't have thought so many visitors would have such high font (name) recognition!

a mere 12, I got the really edgey style's like Playbill, Copperplate, Comic Sans, etc. but most likely anything with more than three words in its name I failed. but did anyone put there names in the hall of fame?

24... I'm pleasantly surprised. A lot of it was a matter of deduction, but goes to show I use too many fonts haha!

I got 10,... Randomly clicking.

I really need to stop using default fonts.
