When one takes a turn, the other one takes a break. My partner taught me how to play backgammon—one of the oldest board games—and I thought it was a nice way to connect the concept of “taking turns” because the design has sharp triangles for checkers to wait on. You can see these triangle hands taking turns on window panels (in American Sign Language). This project is for fathers, husbands, partners, bosses, non-disabled people, allies, friends and even family. We all need to take turns to share the responsibility.
