Based upon the art of determining the appropriate amount of space between letters, KernType presents you with a series of words that must be fixed. There are ten in total, which becomes progressively difficult due to the length of the word and typeface being used.

It's hard to say how exciting kerning might be to someone who lacks any interest in graphic design. Then again, I can easily see someone enjoying themselves far more so than expected, and a light bulb turning on all of a sudden.

At the same time, I can also see a hardcore typesetter being quite pissed (instead of loving the game to death, as one might expect). All due to its scoring, which isn't nearly as strict as you'd assume it to be.
