    I'd like to know the name of the font used for the green "GAMES GALORE" sign in this photo.

    How likely do you think it is that the color of the actual sign you saw is the same color I see on my computer monitor? Even given that I have a profiled display, what steps did you take at capture or in processing to compensate for the lighting conditions at the time? If you shot in jpeg, your camera already changed the shade of green.

    Well the GREEN font is different than the WHITE font so I think the OP was just differentiating between the two......

    If you look closely at the lettering, you'll see that reoccurring letters differ in appearance, so it stands to reason that there might not be an actual font used. It could've been illustrated.

    The nearest match I could find is Boink™ Std:

    The OP isn't asking about the color.
    I agree that the type appears to be hand drawn.

    This looks almost exact, with a few modified letterforms to make it a logotype.

    He's talking about what font it is, not the name of the shade of green.

    Your monitor may be 5K if you want and you may be the genius obviously in what ever you do but... you didn't get the question. He is asking about the name of the green font.

    English is not my first language and I understood the question right away. :rolleyes:

    It seems this is the correct font, just elongated a bit.
