Playing board games with Switch Dice, a switch accessible electronic dice, is great inclusive fun.
Board games remain amazingly popular despite the trend to much more ‘techie’ toys. Nevertheless, go into any toy shop and you are certain to find a display of classics like Snakes and Ladders, Ludo and Monopoly through to a whole bunch of much newer games.
Playing board games usually requires players to throw or roll a dice. But for some gamers the act of throwing a dice may be difficult; that’s when Switch Dice, a switch accessible electronic dice can help. Switch Dice could be a great leveler especially if ‘local ground rules’ insist all players must use the Switch Dice when it’s their turn. Why not?
Switch Dice is really simple to use. Turn it on by plugging in a switch – any 3.5mm / 1/8th inch switch works. Pressing it makes the red Switch Dice LEDs ‘roll’ then stop showing how many spaces the gamer can move forward. The bright LEDs should help kids with sight conditions. It runs on two ‘AAA’ type batteries and if not used for more than five minutes goes to sleep to save battery power. Pressing the switch wakes it up again. It’s as simple as that 🙂
I’m planning to build six Switch Dice in January and send them to the mum and dad bloggers to test and review. The first one is going to Kara Melissa who blogs at ‘Free as Trees’ Read this posting about Kara and her son Seb. Another is for Stacy Warden who blogs at Noahsmiracle and the third is going to Tony Jones at TalkSense.
