I’m talking to Richard Wheatley, a Magic player from the UK. Richard has been featured on Daily MTG, the Nerdist, Reddit, Imgur and SCG for playing in prereleases with braille sleeves.
Richard is visually impaired and his love of the game keeps him motivated to learn all the cards from new sets so he can keep an accurate mental concentration of the board state.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Richard Wheatley!
Also! Congratulations to Richard for making day 2 at Grand Prix London 2016. There’s pics and it’s an interesting easter egg to see Jon Saso, President of Channel Fireball be the one running cards back and forth to Richard during the draft.
