Figure is a tabletop game based on the inherent shape of words written in the lowercase, determined by the ascenders and descenders of individual characters. Players compete to find words that fit a displayed sequence of shapes, aiming to find either the first word or the most words.

Fast-paced and addictive, Figure promotes typographic and linguistic awareness in an accessible and playful manner. Its components include a box with magnetic closure, instruction booklet, a deck of cards, score pads, and a sand timer.
