Well I'm mildly concerned anyway...

On Saturday at Peter Lyon's we played a new game of Bronwyn’s called 'Witch Trial' by Cheapass Games.

To quote the rules:
"It is a dark time in American history. Society has chosen to rid itself of the influence of "witches," i.e., unmarried women, free thinkers, vegetarians, the homeless, and other undesirables.

In Witch Trial, you play an attorney at a prestigious law firm. You will act as prosecutor or defender in several cases involving unsavoury characters mentioned above. While witchcraft per se isn't really a crime, it's customary to bring suspects into court on related offences, such as Card Playing, Smoking, and Tampering with the Post."

The game basically involves collecting cards - Suspect, Charge, Evidence, Motion and Objection, then taking a case to court by dicing to see who defends the case you are prosecuting. You win the case by playing evidence and motion cards (for and against) to determine the final odds before rolling the dice to see if the jury convicts or not. Whoever wins (prosecutor or defender) then gets the fee.
The winner is whoever has the most money when you run out of cards.

An amusing game that pokes as much fun at greedy Lawyers as it does at early-19th Century society. I would rate it a 7 out of 10 and a relatively fast (<30 minutes) in-betweener card game.
