It's Rag Time!
What’s better than typography and ragtime music? A typography game and ragtime music.

The Rag Time game challenges you to fix a bad example of ragged text and make it Swiss-perfect. Rag Time puts you up against the clock to make the best rag you can.

What’s a rag?

Rags are commonly the most overlooked detail in typography. They are the line breaks to the right of this paragraph. A good rag goes in and out from line to line in small increments. A bad rag creates distracting shapes of white space in the margin. (See examples below). Don't be a Scheisser Rag—Fathom high score is 1423—Guten Rag!

Take the Rag Time challenge.
