Juries and board games: A match made in nerd heaven

For so many reasons, we here at the Jury and Democracy blog are delighted by a story from today’s Raleigh (NC) News and Observer. In a nutshell, a jury asked a judge to buy it board games, and the judge obliged.

The judge seemed to avoid making jury-themed game purchases, but Clue? I mean, that’s a whodunnit, which could even be relevant to a civil trial.

Better still is that Board Game Geek even has a thread on what games are best for passing time in a jury room. And the commenters (mostly) take the task seriously.
