Kern Type, the kerning game

Came across this a few days ago, it is a fun way to test your eye for kerning. Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters. Typographers call this activity kerning. Your solution will be compared to typographer’s solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it. Good luck!

I scored an 87/100.
