This is my first post and I am hoping the great people on this sight can help me. I wasn't able to find a previous post like this, but than again I am new.

I have a friend that is gone through eye surgery and has a hard time seeing. I'm trying to find games that we can play that require little to no sight.

Please list any you can think of that you enjoy.

I have...

Geek Out
Outburst

But I'm hoping for more than just trivia games.

Thanks,
Clockwork Owl

There are a couple of blind guys in one of my game groups. They will play all sorts of stuff, the latest we played was Mice and Mystics. The rest of us obviously read any cards. We describe the scene and tell of any creatures and remind the players of their options if requested.

We also played Dominion recently. If someone didn't have as great a memory, it may not work as well.

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is all story based ish and others can read alongside the friend

If you do want a trivia game, Wits and Wagers is raucous fun. There are some other verbal party games that work well too if you want.

Resistance, Spyfall, and some hidden traitors work welltoo.

Maybe Tales of Arabian Nights too.

Since there aren't very many cards, you could probably do something to mark the cards in Coup so that they can be distinguished by touch easily. Maybe get some pressed staples and tape them to the face of the cards in different patterns.

If he can see blobs, some of the abstract games might work, like Battle Sheep or Mancala. Similarly, Intrigue might work.

My best friend is blind, and we've had quite a bit of luck enjoying games.

Colt express, simply brailed ourselves with a slate and stylus. We just used one or two characters per card because my friend's Braille isn't great.
Bang, the dice game. Simply brailed as well
Cash and guns
Dungeonquest
Good cop bad cop, brailed professionally
Bonanza,brailed professionally
Love letter, brailed professionally
Coup, brailed professionally

No Thanks

There is a company called 64 ounce games that makes braile conversion kits for a lot of games. You can check out their website for their products. We've had a lot of success both with professional and home brewed braile labels, but there are games that don't require any brailing whatsoever. I didn't mention a few RPGs that we've enjoyed a lot sad well. Don't underestimate what your friends will be capable of doing.
