Mattel and the National Federation of the Blind have partnered together to create a Braille edition of UNO®, the iconic family card game. UNO® has always prided itself on being a card game for everyone, but often blind and low-vision people found it difficult to participate. Now, with easily readable Braille dots on every card, blind and low-vision players can participate in the fun. All players call out the cards they play during the game, and blind players may touch the discard pile to verify the card in play or call for a “Card Check” to determine how many cards are in each player’s hands. It all adds up to an inclusive experience for everyone! Read the Full https://news.mattel.com/news/unoR-introduces-first-official-braille-deck UNO® Braille is now available for everyone at Target.

UNO® Braille works with your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant!
Just ask your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to launch UNO® Braille, and they will provide an audible tutorial of how to play the game. The tutorial is interactive, so you may ask questions as they walk you step by step through a few rounds of play. Or, if you know how to play but just have a question about action cards, how to score, or other rules of the game they can provide the answers!
