Event Description

In this seminar, Dr Michael Heron and Pauline Belford from Meeple Like Us will introduce the topic of accessibility and how it manifests in tabletop gaming. We will explore the various categories of permanent and situational disability and how they often act with and against the expectations of game design. We'll discuss common issues, common solutions, and why this topic matters to all of us more than we'd think.
