Don't forget to check out mathematics for the elderly I included some dice games there as well

A local made our markers out of empty shotgun cartridges they work a treat with this game and bingo as they are easy to pick up.
i found the game mentioned above where you can't role a 1 and the first to 100 wins. I have one lady who just keeps going and last week she rolled a total of 106 in one go my folk love this game and its a great time filler.

For those who are visually impaired, buy or make large dice.

Use the idea in the comment section of this link

Also, I search internet for "Roll and Cover games"
There is usually a simple object, like a heart or shamrock that has numbers circled on it that the resident tries to cover when they roll that number. You can use poker chips, candies, or BINGO daubers. Simple and fun

FARKLE
We play with 2 dice
Goal is to roll 1's and 5's
1=100 points
5= 50 points
Play until you get to..say 5000 or what ever time allows


Person gets 3 rolls
If you roll ALL 1's and 5's in a single roll, you get an extra roll!
