Braille Dice For Tabletop Gaming

January 28, 2019


Because everybody should be able to Dungeon and Dragon, these are the Braille gaming dice created by Jack Berberette as part of his Dots RPG project, which aims to make tabletop gaming more inclusive to the blind. The 3-D printing shapefiles are available for free HERE, or you can purchase finished dice in a variety of colors and sides from his Shapeways shop. Just like my campaign to rescue the princess from an evil dragon, a noble quest. "But I thought you were just after the dragon's gold." Shhhhhhhhhh -- I have a lot of bills. "What kind of bills?" Mostly unpaid tavern ones.

Thanks to WD, who informed me he actually collects dice. That's cool, I had a statistics professor in college that did too. He also ruined the lottery for me.

    Oh, cool. Now the blind can play tabletop games like D&D and be so mind-numbingly bored they want to put a shotgun in their mouth and pull the trigger with their toe...

    You always post the best stuff.

    I would suspect a 3D printed die would have balance issues. I don't know how fair the die would be.

    DM: You walk into a room. The walls are stained red...
    Player: What's "red"?

    I think the dotted edges have the same function as when there is a line under a 6 or 9, so you can tell if it is rotationally correct. The digits 4,6,8,0 are all the same, just rotated 90 deg.

    I like to check if i'm rotationally correct as well. I'll use this handy tip to sort it out.
