Web-based games

The latest Syntax podcast includes a discussion of creating a minesweeper-style Web game with the React framework. The hosts suggested using React's pointer events. That made me cringe. I know little about React or its pointer events, but I assume that using them excludes keyboard users. Perhaps they will work on touch screens?
today I did some searching and found skimpy resources for a developer wanting to create an accessible Web game. Does anyone have suggestions for reading materials on this topic.
