Prototype of Portable Braille Sudoku with Magnetic Tokens

The game would comprise these components:
  1. Game board - a stiff piece of card stock or milar with the 81 squares of a Sudoku board outlined in braille dots.   The  3 x 3 grids would  be outlined in double braile dots.   The variable squares would be cut out.
  2. A back board of iron (or steel) sheet metal about 1/64" thick punched out holes for a 3 ring binder and bent up on the edge to provide a slot to hold the game board in place.  See drawing below.
  3. 81 Playing tokens composed of numbers brailled on milar backed with magnetic sheets.
  4. A 3 ring binder to hold multiple games.
The proposed game board wold be oriented in landscape mode on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of 100 lb braille paper.  The inside dimensions of the boxes would be 12 dots wide and 8 dots high in graphics mode.  Each box would be separated by its adjacient box with one row of solid dots.  Every three boxes there would be a double row and colum of dots.  Also there would be a double row of dots around the outside of all of the boxes.   There is a sample game here.

Below is a drawing of the front and edge view of the metal backing.  It must be magnetic and contain no sharp edges.  Approx 20 - 16 gage. The left and right edges of a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of magnetic sheet metal need to be folded up to make a slot that the game card will slip into to so that it will not flap away from the metal when the page is turned in the binder.  The backing needs to be punched through so that the metal will fit inside a standard 3 hole notebook.
