Typographic dating game

Type Connection is a website/game created by Aura Seltzer that helps you learn how to pair typefaces.

Start by choosing a typeface to pair. Like a conventional dating website,
Type Connection presents you with potential “dates” for each main character—
without the misleading profile photos and commitment-phobes. The game
features well-known, workhorse typefaces and portrays each as a character
searching for love. You are the matchmaker. You decide what kind of match
to look for by choosing among several strategies for combining typefaces.
Along the way, you explore typographic terminology, type history, and more.
By playing Type Connection, you deepen your own connection with type.
