If you'd like to get a durable deck of cards that'll last practically forever; here they are! A cut above our regular Braille playing cards; these ones still have the large print and Braille on them. But all the cards in this deck are made of 100% plastic; so you can literally dump them all into a sink of water and wash them clean. Why; you could even play a game of cards in the swimming pool (holding cards under water and all) and the cards will survive perfectly! What's more; the Braille on each of our plastic cards is guaranteed to stay nice and sharp after endless use - something that makes them a particular favorite for kids and anyone who's learning Braille. Lastly; this deck of plastic cards comes in the same sort of sturdy; snap-shut plastic storage container that our Regular Braille Playing Cards do; except the storage case is even nicer - with the words Braille Playing Cards embossed in raised print and Braille on the lid.
Here is an all-time favorite among kids and parrents alike! First introduced in 1972; Uno has become one of the most popular family card games of all time. With more than a hundred million decks now in circulation; we're proud to offer a Braille version. Every card; from the regular number cards to the action cards; is Brailled with the number or action; and the color of the card. Of course; the cards are also printed; complete with pictures and colors like a regular Uno deck. Similar in play to games like Crazy Eights; Uno is one of those games you can play again and again ... and never tire of the excitement of cards like Wild and Draw 2.
Everyone loves a family game of Dominoes; so we're pleased to introduce a set that has raised dots. Now everyone; blind or sighted; can join in the fun! This set comes with 28 plastic domino tiles; and a hard-plastic case to keep everything contained. On the dominoes themselves; you'll find large; raised dots to indicate the number on each side; and a tactile line down the center. Each domino even has a rough-textured back; to help keep the tiles from sliding around on the table. Tiles measure two inches long and an inch wide; and are made of solid plastic for a playing piece that's absolutely indistructible.
Here's an elegant full-sized, completely tactile chess set for blind and visually impaired players - and their sighted friends and families. First of all, the large 9" X 13" wooden board is beautifully hand-painted with brightly contrasting colors for the black and white squares. What's more, the black squares are raised to make it a snap for anyone playing the game by touch to tell them apart from the white squares. And each square itself has a hole in the center, which the peg at the bottom of each piece snugly fits into. (This ensures that no chessmen will ever get knocked over or end up on the wrong squares.) At each end of the board are two capture rows - for you to use in storing and showing off your opponent's fallen men. The sturdy, plastic chess pieces themselves are shaped differently, too; so it's easy to tell a pawn from a knight or the rook from the almighty king. Plus ... you guessed it ... each white piece has a large dot on the very top so that blind players can easily "see" whether each piece is theirs or their opponents. Chess is such a widely played game that no one should ever be without a chess set. And since you don't even need to know a single letter of the Braille alphabet to play our version of the game with a friend, anyone who's just lost their sight will still be able to play the game they've always loved ...
So you're not a big fan of chess games that seem to stretch on for hours on end ... Or perhaps you're new to the idea of playing board games by touch? well, it sounds as if our completely tactile version of checkers is for you! Just like our chess sets, every detail of this adapted version of checkers is tactual, allowing blind and sighted players to enjoy it together. The wooden checkerboard itself measures almost 9" by 13" - plenty of space to lay out a game of checkers. On the board, the white squares are raised above the black ones, and the squares even have holes in the center so the pieces won't fall over. As for the plastic checkers, the white pieces have a large dot on the top, and, of course, the kings are twice as large as the pawns. And again, you don't have to know Braille to play this game!
