Games to play with sighted people in isolation

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi guys.
So me and my sighted wife are obviously isolating and are looking to find some games to play each other but also some friends who are also in isolation over the net. Don't really care what kind of games they are but all of what I've found is not really both sighted and blind compatible.
Even things like the RS games client is just a black screen for sighted people unless they use the web client which is very basic and not really nice to play.
Open to any and all suggestions. We also have an Apple TV which may or may not be useful.
Oh I should also say I downloaded trivia crack but its a nightmare with all the adds and unlabelled buttons.

Hi Matt,

I found QuentinC's playroom to be fairly accessible. No, certainly not as flashy looking I would assume as Triviacrack or even DiceWorld, but with many games to play, ability to play online and with it not entirely being black screen even sighted folks could join in the fun!! I will link the site below.

dice world is quite accessible and also sighted people can olay, too. games in it are farkle, pig, 14-24, threesm balut, not sure of that last one. you can login as a guest if you don't want to create an account, and have several games going at once. it runs on both ios and ipados and android.

What about Dice World? If you don’t already play, it’s extremely accessible and has a nice look for people with sight. I will paste. The App Store link below. I also believe that hanging with friends is accessible for both blind and sighted people, though I’ve never played it myself. there is also another game called word war I think, but having recently reset my iPhone, I’m still downloading apps that are used to have. Have you checked out the plethora of blindfold games? Some of those are multiplayer as well. Don’t know what they are like from a visual point of you though as I can’t see the screen and have never had a need to play with anyone who can. Finally, you might want to check out a card game called Lost Cities. That works from the game centre so not only can you play people you know, I think there may be an option to either play the computer or others all around the world. Now for the link to Dice World.

Hi Matt,
Here’s a suggestion that you and your wife might like. It’s called AI dungeon. Basically, you create your own interactive story. And the possibilities are endless. Not even joking. It’s not a multiplayer game but it’ll sure Keep you guys occupied. In my opinion, it’s really fun. You guys can even come up with a story together. I think you can also share your story with in the app, but I’m not sure about this. Hope this helps.
stay safe and be careful.

Hi. If you downloaded trivia crack two, then it's god awful. The original one is good, and accessible with the buttons. Most of them when tapped will let you know what they do. You can cancel before you buy coins or unlimitted lives, though I did. I think it was a buck. Kingdoms, by the same company is very accessible and I personally like the sounds. I don't know how visual either of those games are. I play trivia crack one, and kingdoms. My user name is Irish_storm if you'd like to find me or I can start a game if you say what yours is. Stay safe.

if you're after a traditional card game of skill, try Cribbage Pro for IOS. I've found cribbage a fun and challenging game to learn and play. My sighted partner and I really enjoy it. Let me know if you end up going for cribbage. I should have added that this app is very accessible.

I am quite bored of some text games.
and hopefully soon or later.
we can have great accessible video games for both sighted and visually impaired.
