The Glorious Glyphs Game

The Glorious Glyphs Game is similar to The Font Game, but as the name suggests, you have to identify the font, not from a string of letters, but from just one character, or glyph. I have built a kind of cheat-sheet with most of game’s glyphs (will complete it soon). This game isn’t timed.
