Games For the Blind

by Mujjen

During holidays, whether winter or summer, many families enjoy playing games together. Here is a selection of games where your blind friends and family members can easily join in.

Enjoying life and having fun

Great gifts for the blind

Being blind or visually impaired makes it more difficult to do things that others take for granted. Everybody has the need to relax and have some fun, but not being able to see can make this impossible. Therefore, it is really fantastic to see how many games have been prepared with Braille labels or large writing. In this way, everybody, regardless of the amount of vision, will be able to participate. Light a fire, make some hot chocolate, and get started!


Bingo is a fun game where each player has a board with numbers, arranged in rows. Numbers are randomly drawn and each player will mark the number, if he has it on his board. When one row (horisontal or vertical) is filled, he has to say Bingo! The first one to get a full row has won. Great game to play while travelling.

Domino is a game that can be played even by small children. Each tile has two sides, with a number (or picture). To be able to put it out, it needs to match the number on the previous tile.

Different playing cards

UNO is a card game which is easy to play, and loved in many countries around the world. It was created in 1971. The purpose with the game is to be the first one to get rid of all your cards. Since the rules are not too difficult, it is a perfect game to play when children are around. Beware, though, kids are smart and will soon find out how to cheat you!

There are also normal playing cards and those with pictures available with Braille. This makes it possible to play an endless number of games.

For the blind

This is a game that can be played over several days, although a normal playing time averages 1-3 hours. It is built around the concepts of economy, real estate and taxes. This game, and the forerunners, have been around for over 100 years, being one of the most popular games of the 20th century. It is available in different editions, depending on the country where it is sold. In 2008, a common World Monopoly was created, choosing cities through Internet voting.

Some people do not like the game, saying it is built around cheating and bankrupting other players. Those who love it (millions of people) see it as a fun game that makes you use your brain!
