It's Game Time!

MaxiAids offers recreational board games, card games and more for the blind and visually impaired...

Bingo Cards Cherry-O Checkers and Chess Game

With tactile games and braille game pieces, MaxiAids offers many games that are designed for both the blind and sighted so everyone in the family can play. Encouraging children, young adults, parents and grandparents to "play together" and participate in family games is rewarding, creating that bond many families today are lacking.  Those who are blind, suffer from low vision and have sight impairment can participate in social games along with their sighted family members and friends, encouraging this well needed and healthy interaction.
In today's busy and over stimulated society, technology has pulled our time and attention away from our loved ones, leaving family members and friends absorbed in their tech devices, isolating themselves in their rooms and offices, and taking long stretches of time alone on their computers, tablets, cell phones and other tech media.   Surfing the net, playing video games, internet shopping, reading emails, and spending hours on social media sites leave us in a constant state of distraction, not being fully present, and taking us away from what's truly important-- the communication we crave and need from our family members and friends.  It's no wonder why family interaction and socializing in the home has taken a nose dive in our culture.

Scrabble Games Monopoly Games Domino Games

As winter approaches and we tend to spend more time indoors, make game night (or game day) something to look forward to.  MaxiAids has a huge selection of fun adaptive games for the blind and visually impaired such as Braille and Low Vision Monopoly, Super Big Boggle, Deluxe Scrabble for Low Vision, Checkers and Chess sets, Tactile Connect Four and Tic-Tac-Toe games, Dominos with raised dots and much, much more.  You will also find a great selection of unique Braille, tactile and low vision board games for people of all ages and ability levels, as well as cards and accessories, dice, Scrabble replacement tiles and more.
