The Coppell Lions Club has dedicated the “Coppell Lions Club Game Shelf for Blind and Visually Impaired Players” at the Cozby Library and Community Commons. Coppell Lions Club is celebrating the Lions Club Centennial this year and developed the game shelf as a legacy project to offer accessible gaming to the blind and visually impaired members of the community. Braille overlays have been applied to many elements of the games which allow sighted players to seamlessly play alongside players with visual impairments.
The game shelf currently offers nine games, including Tsuro, Roll for It, Mille Bornes, The Resistance, Love Letter, Yoink, Apples to Apples, Munchkin, and Memory. The games are available for checkout at the Library, 177 N Heartz Rd Coppell, TX, for a 21-day period. Library cardholders may begin checking these items out this week. Non-cardholders may obtain a TexShare card from their home library for the opportunity to check out a game.
The Coppell Lions Club will maintain the games on the shelf and as part of the legacy project will add new titles annually. Games are suitable for ages 3 to adult and for all levels of braille use.
