k and h are a lot alike when you write cursive.

Not particularly - at least, not when I write. Cursive is the reason I gave R as a possible confusion (as the loop part of the k can sometimes be shifted too far up), but if your k doesn't double back on itself, or your h does, then I think you have problems. :mrgreen:

I'm not sure how you write cursive, but

If you write a bit sloppy when doing the bottom right part of the k it ends up like an h.

I've ticked English only but in fact I'm being generous to myself. I speak what I call "International English". I grew up in numerous countries and then over decades stuffed up my vocabulary over many decades.
I understand some others and there actually words I Think are English that are in fact foreign ( French, German or Dutch). It can get quite amusing when I get the blank stares <g>
I still have a real dictionary that gets regularly used.

I speak these languages fluently:

German (first language) - German ancestry
English (second language)
Afrikaans (third language)

PS: Dutch = German + Afrikaans (I can read and understand it, but cannot speak it)

Hallo, ich heiße Matchbox and I can praat Duits, Engels en Afrikaans. :wtf:

If the distribution up there has any significance, it seems wise to make a german translation for the game :lol:
