Settlers of Catan and the Invasion of the German Board Games - The Atlantic

To outsiders, this churn of wood, brick, sheep, ore, and wheat always makes Eurogames seem overly complicated. (In Friedemann Friese’s masterpiece Power Grid, there is even a step called the “bureaucracy” phase.) But in practice, all the busywork keeps p...

CTAN: Package microtype
TeX already does some nice hyphenation and other features, but there's more:

“Margin kerning is the adjustments of the characters at the margins of a typeset text. A simplified employment of margin kerning is hanging punctuation.
