A great tactile version of checkers.
Perfect for both blind and sighted players.
Boasts wooden checkerboard with plenty of space to lay out a game.

Just like our chess sets, every detail of this adapted version of checkers is tactual, allowing blind and sighted players to enjoy it together. The wooden checkerboard itself measures almost 9" by 13" - plenty of space to lay out a game of checkers. On the board, the white squares are raised above the black ones, and the squares even have holes in the center so the pieces won't fall over. As for the plastic checkers, the white pieces have a large dot on the top, and, of course, the kings are twice as large as the pawns. And again, you don't have to know Braille to play this game!
Measures about 14 in. by 9 in. by 1 in.
Package Weight: about 1.5 pounds.
