Typing Games

To help practice your new typing skills, here are a few short typing games. To improve your skills you should try to make as few mistakes as possible and concentrate on accuracy over typing speed.

For the random letters, the natural distribution of letters in English is used. i.e. letters that appear more often in writing will appear more often in the random selection.
