Chess For The Blind And Visually Impaired

There is blindfold chess, in which players with vision are not allowed to look at the board, and then there is Chess for the visually impaired. Pegged boards are used to keep the pieces upright, and smaller boards are used to "feel" the position, as the visual aspect is taken out of the game.

I am very impressed by these players as I think it would take a very sharp mind, great concentration, and a great memory to play like this.
