This game has players sort socks as quickly as possible. Each sock has a different texture pattern. To play with both sighted and blind kids it is recommended that sleep shades are used to keep everyone on the same level but it is a lot of quick paced fun.
This game has players take on the role of Gary, a very hungry mouse. Players move Gary through the maze trying to pick up as much cheese as possible. As you get more cheese, it’s harder to fit though doors, if you eat too much you get stuck and lose everything. Great introduction to ‘Press your luck’ gameplay and teaches great orientation and mobility skills as players must remember which doors are small so they don’t get trapped themselves.
This game has players compete to match tactile ears to pictures of animals. The players have to match the right ear shape and color with the right body. Braille stickers help blind players know which color their pieces are so they can match them correctly and reinforce braille skills.

A great introduction to drafting games like 7 Wonders, Sushi Go has all players choose at the same time out of a hand of cards 1 card that they want to play and pass the rest. This repeats until players are out of cards. Some cards score for having a ton of the same card, some cards only work when comboed with other cards, some cards allow players to take double turns. Players must choose which will be most helpful for them and try to prevent other players for collecting what they need.
Be a bean farmer!
