Logos are everywhere around us, everyday. You see them but do you really see them. You think you know one car, TV, or computer company logo or wordmark from another. But will you recognize it if you're shown only a small piece of it? Can you spot the real from the fake? Whether you rely on color, font, shape, or some other element you can have fun and test your logo identification skills with these games and quizzes.
In this series of logo guessing games you're presented with 6 versions of a logo and you try to guess which one is the correct version. There are usually very subtle differences. The game is timed, you lose time for each wrong guess (and can keep guessing until you get it right). You can get Guess the Logo for iPhone / iPod touch / iPad too with even more logo games.
These are logo versions of classic games and a quiz to test your logo IQ.
Try beginner, intermediate, or advanced games of memory where you try to remember where each logo appeared in the grid as you match up pairs. It can be tricky in the advanced version where all the logos use the same colors.
- Slide Puzzle
For the logo slide puzzle you try to slide the pieces around to reassemble the scrambled logo. Quite challenging when you know the logo. Really tough when it's an unfamiliar one. Three levels with more tiles in the puzzle for the higher levels.
It's a timed quiz where they show you 8 logos (altered to obscure names or change the shape slightly if it's too much of a dead giveaway) and you have to supply the company name. If you don't attempt a guess at enough of the logos it can't calculate a score.
There are multiple editions of this game each featuring a different set of logos. You're presented with 26 letters from A to Z from what should be a familiar logo. With nothing but the font and color to go on (and sometimes a bit of a shape) can you correctly identify each one? Fill in a guess for each letter that you can then find out if you were correct. Give up? There's a link near the top to the answers for each game.
There are multiple logo identification games here. You get a limited time to type in the names of as many of the logos you recognize. The name will appear under the logo for each one you get correct. The theme logo games might be easier simply because the theme at least narrows down your options. The ones shown below aren't all of the logo games but it's enough to get you started.
Can you identify a logo by its font, coloring, and styling? The word Sporcle mimics famous logotypes in the Fabulous Fonts Quizzes. How many can you guess in 5 minutes? In the Name the Magazine quiz you'll see a bit of the nameplate for some well-known publications. What does it say?
You and up to 5 more of your friends can play this logo game at home where you answer questions about well-known logos. Or, try the online version that features a small selection of the questions from the board game.
