Access+ is an innovative studio created with the aim of providing equal and inclusive access to board games.  

The games in the Access+ line have been designed to stimulate cognitive functions, spark positive emotions and foster social ties while offering players the opportunity to discover, or rediscover, the joy of playing together. To ensure its games are as accessible as possible, Access+ works with healthcare professionals to develop a line of games adapted to people living with cognitive differences. 

The first three games found in the Access+ collection, include adapted versions of Timeline, Dobble (formerly Spot It!) and Cortex (formerly Braintopia).
