If you're looking for a fun way to test your eye, I'd recommend this game. Basically 'spot the difference' but with UI elements. :)

Awesome article, thanks for that. But don't you agree, that sometimes, especially when you make a development of some serious game projects, you should provide and implement more powerful solutions? When I've been working in game dev agency, and we had some problems with creating some new game art details in our locations, we've simply contacted guys from game art development outsourcing iLogos agency, and they have helped, in the shortest terms. Because they have enough of qualified dev professionals for such situations.

I am sure there are, but I cannot recall them by heart. But maybe I will make a research and create a list similar for the CSS resources.

I think these resources are extremely valuable, because they provide a much more appealing way to learn CSS than just reading the specs.
