Lawyer Up Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Hey there, Legal Eagles. It's time to think like a lawyer (love that channel on YouTube). Rock Manor Games is looking to take you to court. But don't worry, you're not being put on trial for anything. Instead, you're playing as legal counsel. Lawyer Up is a new asymmetrical card game where players look to argue their case in court. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Meticulously designed and developed by Samuel W. Bailey (Forbidden Stars, Talisman: Cataclysm) and Mike Gnade (Maximum Apocalypse, the Few and Cursed) over the last 4 years, Lawyer Up is an asymmetrical two-player courtroom drama card game where one player is the noble prosecution and the other the steadfast defense. Each game begins with the Discovery phase, where players draft vital evidence to support their case and bury evidence that might help their opponent. Next comes the Trial phase, where players call witnesses and play powerful arguments along with the evidence they drafted into their examination pools. To form a coherent line of questioning, players will need to chain together their cards by matching bias symbols. The player who can best examine the Witness by generating the most influence will spend the difference to sway the Jury to their side. Every game is different, but the lawyer with the best case and most convincing arguments will be sure to get the verdict they are after!

The game's making is something like 8x funded with 13 days left to go.
