Although we have many of the games on this page, it is intended that it is a general guide to games for the disabled and wheelchair bound.
There is an inspiring list of sports that paralympians compete in at the bottom of this page. Secondly, of course, we have a massive range of traditional Dice, Card, Board and Table Games that are suitable for most categories of disabilities.
Thirdly, we have picked out some games and equipment that are especially ideal for people with disabilities and wheelchairs.

Giant Dominoes are great fun anyway but also ideal for the visually impaired

Finnish Molkky is another skittles game where sticks are thrown. Skittles games only work for disabled people if at least one person can set the skittles up.
Like Molkky, Kyykka is another skittles game where sticks are thrown. Skittles games only work for disabled people if at least one person can set the skittles up.
