Board Game for Blind People

An astronaut cannot explore the universe with his eyes but must use other senses. This is the basic idea of the MORE board game, which can be played by blind people as well as people who can see. In order to provide a level playing field, the game not only uses blindfolds, but also balls instead of paper cards with texts, which affords tactile sensing. These balls are equipped with an NFC chip which is connected via an app with a smartphone so that texts can be read out and made available to everyone.
