Fantastic idea! It looks very well designed and very accessible for sighted and blind players alike.

One thought, you might even be able to glue different textures of fabric (or lasercut different engraved patterns) on the resources tiles to reduce the amount of conscious 'reading' required? (In the same way designs for sighted people often use colour and texture rather than labels to reduce cognitive effort).

What sort of glue do you use to raise the dots? Is it just a matter of putting a 'bead' on top and letting it dry?


Ooh great idea! I'll try to add some textures to the tiles soon! I'll admit this is the first time I've designed anything specifically for the visually impaired. Some of the pieces would probably be better 3D printed, but I don't know how to model just yet.

I used Elmer's glue to raise the dots, but I imagine there are better alternatives. I just added a glue bead and added extra layers after letting it dry.
