As we all wait out this socially distant winter of 2021, consider playing some games with friends and family to pass the time. Whether you are looking for online or in-person games, here are some accessible options to jazz up the doldrums of January and February:
For in-person games, try checking out the NFB’s Independence Market. You can place orders via email or phone.
Another great option for in-person gaming is 64 Ounce Games. Check out their accessible games and their accessibility kits.
To stir up some competition with family and friends virtually, take a look at RS Games, which is available on computer or smart phone. Players can enjoy choosing from twenty accessible game options, including Monopoly, Scrabble, and Uno.
You can also challenge folks to games by using QuentinC’s Playroom. This platform can be used by downloading the app to your PC, or playing over the Internet. Players can access 29 different games, including Dominos, Quiz Party, Chess, and 1000 Miles.
We can also suggest Dice World for playing games on your phone. You can choose from six dice games, including Farkle and Yatzee. The app is available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
