KickStarter Campaign: Help 64 Ounce Games Make Board Games Accessible to the Blind

Last October I wrote about a new company called 64 Ounce Games. They are a company dedicated to making board games accessible to the blind. Over the past six months they have been working on ways to modify board games tat you can already buy and they are developing their own board games. One of their goals is to use braille and QR codes to provide information that is on the cards in a game. In order to do this though, they need to purchase an embosser. For this, and to raise funding for their own games, 64 Ounce Games has launched a KickStarter campaign. The reception in the first three days has been overwhelming, and they have already reached their original $7,500 goal. The campaign is still going on however, and more money raised will enable them to reach stretch goals, including creating dice for some popular RPG games and making accessibility kits for additional titles. Those who contribute to the campaign can receive one of their original games called Yoink! or receive brailled sleeves for games like Coloretto or the Resistance. To learn more about 64 ounce games, and their mission to make board games accessible, visit my original post.
