To my knowledge there are not many board games that are accessible to the blindness community; however, that is about to change.
Reading has always been a passion of mine and though I can no longer see to read text on a page, my blindness has not deterred me from the love of reading a good book. I have just had to learn to read in a completely different way, and with the help of my iPhone I now have more than enough to read, all right at my fingertips!
