Gaming While Blind

Post by The Magnet Baron » Tue May 09, 2017 4:04 pm

Here's an article I wrote that gives a window into what gaming while blind is like:

Great little article.
I really enjoyed the read.
So, is it safe to presume that you rely a lot on good sportsmanship and honesty in your games; presuming your opponents will correctly read their dice, remove the proper miniatures, honestly decide what's in LOS, etc?
What about your die rolls? Do you have special colored dice? Have them read the dice for you? Use really big dice?

Your article has truly made me curious. Thank you for sharing it.

Lower rating? You ship first.

Give me a sense of humor Lord. Give me the grace to see a joke.
To get some humor out of life and pass it on to other folk.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

+1 on great little article. I would be interested in the answers to the above as well.

Also, do you use measuring sticks to ensure you are getting the distances correct?

Awesome story and I'm truly curious about the answers to the other's questions.

Thanks for sharing!
On r/miniswap under the same name. Please be polite & answer PMs, even if all you tell me is "No thanks," or "I need more time." I expect lower rating to ship first, even if that's me, unless we work something out in advance.
