Tips for an accessible Monopoly Game



These tips are for making Monopoly accessible to blind and low vision players. The techniques can be used for any board game. I didn’t braille every single piece of information as some things like the price of properties and the full names are easily memorized and I wanted to use the regular sized print board. 

The only supplies I used were dymo tape, a Brailler and some braille paper. 



Dice are easy to read by touch. We put a mark in the center of the board so everyone can find the dice easily. 




For squares on the board I made a tactile divider between each square and put a braille initial above each. The initials are also color coded for our low vision players. 

If I needed it, I could have put the price in braille also. 



The property cards I Brailled with a shorthand of the name and rent amounts. 



Chance and Community Chest cards each have a number corresponding to a numbered list in braille. 



The money has each denomination folded a different way. 



Enjoy, but don’t land on income tax!!
