A downloadable game
The year is 1599
You are all judges on the Court of the Queen’s Bench in London.
As with actual judges in the year 1599, no legal experience is necessary.
You will hear five cases. In each case you will have three options for dispensing justice. You will have three minutes to adjudicate each case. When you hear music, it is time to announce your verdict.
This experience is fun when you view each case through a modern lens, and it is fun when you take on the role of a stern judge of the time, but you should be consistent in your outlook, even if as a group you have a mismatch.
- Participants: 1-10 players
- Time: 30 minutes
- Space: A comfortable place for everyone to sit—preferably along a bench like judges
- Things you need: The audio file and a phone that can play it through a speaker
Content warnings: Potentially disturbing elements including criminal violence, injustice, and misery, which will all be present and unavoidable.
- 28 minute audio MP3
- 11 page script PDF
