The 62 cards are split between fonts and explanatory cards, and the fun is to find the match.
Typo Me(mory) is a fun typographical memory game, that not only points out the prominent features and characteristics of each font but also highlights the significance of written language itself. The beautiful package comprises of the game, which consists of 64 play cards, 32 explanatory cards – one for each featured font – and a game manual.
