The following is a new design for the blind to play goes.
The board is square, with small holes distributed in order. There are still two kinds of chess pieces, black and white. But its bottom is flat, each having an insert in its center, making it possible to insert into one hole and fix it too. The upper part is spherical, with the white piece concave and the black one convex, helping the blind tell them apart. So when playing goes, the blind can easily recognize the pieces and tell the route, just by touching the board and pieces.
I’m sure this design will offer convenience to the blind and make their life enjoyable.
