This optional expansion allows players to take control of one of six unique Judges from throughout the history of Judge Dredd, each with special abilities to offer new ways to approach the game.

Today we’re taking a look Psi Judge – check out the previous blogs to find out about the SJS, the Cadet, the Wally Squad, and the Mechanismo.

Specialist Judge – The Psi Judge

Cadets with powerful mental abilities are assigned to Psi Division, where their powers ensure that there is no secret kept from the department.

The Psi Judge brings two powerful abilities to the tabletop that can give you the upper hand when playing Judge Dredd: The Game of Crime-Fighting in Mega-City One.

Firstly, they may secretly take a look at one of the face-down Perp cards on the board, which can help them track down easy arrests and avoid getting caught out by powerful opponents. You could even use it to look at a Perp card near your opponent to see whether you need to save any cards to sabotage their turn or not!

The second part of their ability helps in combat. When opponents play cards to sabotage your arrest attempt, the first card they play must be played face-up. This makes it much more difficult for players to bluff when playing cards against the Psi Judge, as they’d have to play at least two cards to do so.
