CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide recreation and therapy for seniors and individuals with coordination and mobility disabilities. The board is designed for a game called Draughts and can be adapted for use playing Noughts and Crosses. A base was cut from three millimeter craft board and another piece the same size was cut for the top. Sixty-four ten millimeter holes were cut in the top piece. The board was finished in a checkerboard pattern, alternating black and varnished natural wood squares. Twenty-four round draughts (playing pieces) were cut from plywood, with 12 painted black and 12 varnished natural wood. The playing pieces fit securely in the holes in the playing surface, preventing them from being knocked off the board by individuals with limited dexterity. TITLE: Activities for Seniors.
