Sunday Feature 28


Last week we put together the "Judgments" and "Briefs"cards for the Courtroom game. This week we need to figure out what the spaces on the board will be called. This assumes the game will be set up like Monopoly. Another option is that the game be set up like the game of Life, with a snaking track of spaces, each of which might have an instruction similar to those we put on the cards last week.

In Life, players reach a fork in the road and must decide whether to go to college or take a short cut that will lead to a lower salary. In Courtroom, the decision might be between Harvard Law School and a community college paralegal program in Uruguay. For now we may as well try the Monopoly-like set-up, which means we need thirty-six spaces, six of which are the Briefs and Judgments spaces.

I'm so confused. I keep thinkingg it would be fun to have something about how fluff-headed bimbo idiot quasi-celebrities are now more famous than people who are actually worth knowing, but too tired to reword to make this a space...

One set of properties might be named "Judges Chambers" and another might be "Jury Row"... How about a property named "Amici Briefs" or a bar and grill named "the Tort Box"?

I know that sounds corny but there is a restaurant in Pittsburgh called "The Common Plea".

I'm thinking if we want anyone to play this game there can't be an envelope, or even a board. It has to be an iPad app. Each turn consists of the computer randomly choosing something that hap-- I've said too much already. Gotta find someone who knows how to create an app and get started before someone steals the idea.
