For those of us with a competitive streak, timers and score keeping in a game is a big part of the fun. Well, let’s get cracking with some tips and ideas that can help you keep time, keep score, and keep those games of friendly competition on track, no matter your vision.
Now, to keep track of time, instead of using the timer that came with the game, there are some alternatives that may be easier. One good option is a digital timer with a large display that counts down in minutes or seconds. You can find one with buttons that are easy to see and feel.
Large print kitchen timers with large numbers can help you keep track of minutes. They have a pointer you turn like a dial. Some of them have black numbers against a white background other have white numbers against a black background. And when you need to set a time less than five minutes, you’ll turn the pointer to five minutes then turn it back to the time you need.
