Accessibility Comments: 

This App is not accessible using VO. This is yet another board / grid style game that could easily be made accessible. Unfortunately, , Electronic Arts continues to choose to prevent blind IOS Users from accessing the majority of EA titles. I have contacted both Hasbro Consumer Affairs and Electronic Arts several times over the past year to point out the lack of access to this App, to ask that they consider adding accessibility, and to inform them of the resources available to help guide them in designing equal access into their line of simple board / grid-style games.

VoiceOver Performance:
