Yes. Be it a chill evening scene with friends, a fun family get together, or a lazy Sunday afternoon, this card game fits all scenes. What more would you ask for than a card game that can be played with anyone & everyone, regardless of their age?!
This set of Braille playing cards will surely be an excellent addition to your stack of playing cards games. The playing cards deck is brailled on two sides- top left corner and bottom right corner. This will help the blind and low vision people to enjoy the game that they have been kept away from since long. The braille system of indication helps them identify each playing card, i.e the number of the card and the suit that it belongs to. This not just makes for an enjoyable game but also diminishes the feeling of being outcast or alien to some of the activities that the visually challenged have been unable to or have had difficulty to perform.

How to play braille playing cards?
Braille playing cards can be played with the same rules as the normal playing card. So, for example, if you want to play Rummy, the rules will be the same for both braille and non-braille playing cards games.
- Rummy card game is preferably played by 4 players. Distribute 10 playing cards to each player of the card game.
- Keep the remaining playing card in the center as the draw deck.
- Each player needs to make 3 sets of cards (eg the 1st set could be 3 Kings, the 2nd set can consist of 3 Aces, the 3rd set could contain four successive playing cards of the same deck- eg 4,5,6,7 of Diamonds)
- Each player can pick one playing card at a time from the draw deck. If the playing card is useful to the player, he can keep the card but has to remove one card from his existing cards & put it in the draw deck.
- The next player can either pick up the playing card removed by the previous player or get a fresh playing card from the draw deck.
- The player who completes 3 sets first wins the rummy card game.
The aim of the Braille Playing cards is not to change the technique or type of play, but only to help the visually challenged people to be able to play the game.
