"Nothing like a little judicious levity." (Robert Louis Stevenson)

Judicious Consequences, November 17–20, 2016, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset

Ghost Court

In Ghost Court, ghosts bring their mundane problems before a court. If you have haunting rights, but another ghost is trying to evict you; if you're a poltergeist, but someone keeps moving your stuff; if you've found religion, but the Church won't let you across its threshold, then Ghost Court is the place to come.

Ghost Court is a freeform for lots of players and an audience. Three players act as the Judge, Bailiff and Clerk. Everyone else is the audience. We'll go through a series of Plaintiffs and Defendants, chosen from the audience, who all come on stage to have their cases decided. They each make their case, the judge rules on the outcome, and we go on to the next case. (The details of each case are given out on cards, so you don't need to make stuff up.)

If you're familiar with the TV show "Judge Judy", it's like that, but with ghosts. If you're not familiar with the TV show "Judge Judy", you will be by the time you've played Ghost Court.

You're welcome to join the audience and, if you like, be a Plaintiff or Defendant. Feel free to drop in and out.
