I'm wondering if I should make my abstract boardgame more themed, or even if it has a story i shouldn't put too much characters on the box, the card or on the tiles. One have to consider that it has to be touch-able for a blind person. (The visually impaired can touch embossed illustrations to see it e.g. on a card.)

The other thing is that an interactive presentation like this is advised to be taken to a game publisher, or is it better to make a video of the gameplay?

At this early level of trepidation and in view of your customers - I would probably go around the abstract theme - as in, don't confuse anything with extra theme and images and what not, stick to the "red dice" thing that you have going on, it would be more appropriate in your situation I think.

As far as the things to take to a publisher? If I were a publisher, as long as they didnt take too long to watch, I would probably be happy with both - it would already be something that would set you apart from other designers
