5. RagTime

But first, what is rag (in plural rags)?

Rags in page layout and typography are the uneven edges of text in a paragraph that is aligned on one side. When setting a block of text unjustified with a left or right alignment, be sure to keep the rag (the uneven side) balanced without any “holes”. The Rag Time game challenges you to fix a bad example of ragged text and make it perfect. Your enemy will be time, so make the best rags as you can.

6. ExerSize Game

The ExerSize game trains visual intelligence. The game practices analyzing relationships between spaces. Visual intelligence is a key skill that helps in diverse areas of life: from sports to architecture. By turning this practice into a game, we can improve our ability and become more effective problem solvers, creators, and humans.
