Qwirkle for the Colorblind

 

Colorblindness, also called Color Vision Deficiency, is a reduced ability to distinguish between certain colors.

Qwirkle is played by building rows and columns of brightly-colored tiles that are either all the same color or all the same shape, without creating duplicates.

The combination of the two creates a challenge! Here are a few ways to make your Qwirkle game into a game that’s fun for the colorblind.

 

Items we used:

  • Permanent Marker
  • White Paint (and paint brush)
  • Fabric Paint

 

Our methods:

Label each piece with the first letter of the color. Red = R, Orange = O, Yellow = Y, and so on.

 

Place a black dot in the center of one color to distinguish it from a similar color.

 

Similarly, place a white dot in the center of one color to distinguish it from a similar color.

 

Paint the outside of each block white to create a stronger contrast between the background and the piece color.

 

Paint the inside of each block with a lighter color.

 

Paint the inside of each block but only outline one color to distinguish it from a similar color.
