The chess board specially designed for vision impaired persons allows a vision impaired person to play the game either with another vision impaired person or with a sighted person. The vision impaired person is allowed to touch and identify the pawns even the pawns of the opposite side player. The black squares are raised up in the board and white squares are pressed down. There is a Braille dot on top of white pawns. The black pawns do not have a Braille dot.
