Braille Shut The Box Game: £24.95, product code GB103, available from RNIB

The object of this fun game is to shut all nine numbers by rolling the dice. The numbered flaps are marked with braille and the game also includes tactile dice for blind or partially sighted players.

During each round, a player repeatedly throws the dice to “cover the tiles” of the box. The round ends when no tile can be covered on a throw and the player counts each successfully covered number as a point for his score.
The goal is to cover all numbers, that is, “shut the box”, which finishes that game. Play continues until each player has completed three rounds, at which time scores are compared and a winner is declared.
