Local Game Developer and Denny’s Diner Brings Holiday Happiness to Game Club members with Low Vision
Phoenix, AZ – As families celebrate the holiday, Al Jones Corporation, is helping to ensure that teens and above experience the joy of the season, also. On Christmas night, 10:00 p.m., EST, the company is donating a deck of the jumbo sized playing card version of its song lyrics trivia game, Lyrics Guru®, to the game club which meets at Denny’s diner located at 1401 North 75th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85043. This game is designed for those with low vision. During this holiday season alone, Al Jones Corporation expects to donate hundreds of sample decks to organizations which assist those with blindness and low vision; such as the Blind Veterans Association, Foundation for Blind Children, Southern Arizona Association for the Visually Impaired, Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, National Federation of the Blind, Phoenix VA Health Care System and more. The decks will be shrink wrapped with game instructions. The retail version, available soon, will contain the same deck of shrink wrapped cards with instructions, but will be further packaged in a card box.
“We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to experience happiness,” said Al Jones, President. “Our game was initially developed for the sighted as an Android and iOS app for mobile devices. Then, during a recent celebratory event for the disabled, we shared to a group of attendees that we have conducted internal meetings of developing a version of this game in alternative formats. We were made immediately aware of the limited selection of games publicly available to those with visual imparities. We accepted the challenge.”
Al Jones Corporation also helps to inspire the spirit of entrepreneurialism in youth and adults to create user-friendly games. This is part of the larger focus the company has on developing empathy and promoting diversity on the workforce.
“This initiative is built with the goal of empowering others with vision loss to experience happiness, whether it is receiving an Al Jones Corporation game from a friend or family member, or enjoying the game with them“ said Jones.
The company proudly used this Denny’s restaurant to conduct meetings to discuss the card game’s structure and packaging design; all while eating and drinking menu items. “Nettie Rios, the restaurant manager, and her staff provided fast and friendly service” said Jones.
The corporation also plans to grow its licensing business. It seeks to partner and establish licensing agreements with trusted companies such as Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT), manufacturers of board and card games. In addition, it seeks to partner with producers of entertainment properties for television with a focus on song lyrics and trivia.
