This project was made by 6th graders at Hauser Jr. High, Maggie and Lara. It is a tactile matching game made for other students with visual impairments.
Players: 1-3 visually impaired people can play this game at a time. 1-3 people with no visual impairments can help judge the game once it is done being played.
Purpose: The idea of the game is to learn to both identify and match braille.
Step 1: One player with visual impairments will feel the braille of a game chip from the top row. Then, they will set it somewhere near them.
Step 2: Then, while feeling the other braille, the visually impaired person feels the game chip from the bottom row. They will try to find the match to the braille chip that they selected before.
Step 3: Once all the chips are gone, the person(s) with no visual impairments looks at the chips that the visually impaired people have matched, and check that the icons on the top match.
How to Win: The player with the most card matches wins, if the players have the same amount of cards, it is simply a tie.
