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!

When will the PNP next be updated?

The PNP version has no strategies for Case 00..

Hi Mike,

I recently purchased Lawyerup PNP and found Few missing cards in the PNP zip, can you please update to include below cards aswell.

1. Deck divider cards

2. Biased Variant judge's

3. Case backstory cards



As indicated on this page - the game is still in development. We will continue to update the PNP until the game is released.

Thanks for the clarity 🙂

Hi wish to purchase this game...is this the full version PNP with all strech goals?

It is the full version of the base game with all stretch goals.

The manual states 7 Judges and the pnp only has one for the Case 0

I guess there is not a 9up layout for cards for auto duplexing.

Is there a changce of this otherwise i will have to try and make my own

I was wondering how we are supposed to print the Case01 when I print it in the 3x3 sheet the cards come out much smaller then the base because of the color code and sizing. 

I hope the german version get´s added here too

Someone needs to add this to TTS.

hello, I bought the PNP and I have 6 witness cards of case 00 which have no image, do you have a solution ?

We've updated the files to remove these pages to prevent confusion.

I love the art in this game.

Will you add french version PNP files when available?

That is up to our French partner but we will ask - they "own" the french version.
