Today we’re taking a look at the Special Judicial Service – check out the previous blogs to find out about the Cadet, the Wally Squad, and the Mechanismo.
Specialist Judge – The SJS
The Special Judicial Service, or SJS, stand in judgement of the Judges themselves. They ensure no-one, even the Chief Judge, is above the law.
Everyone fears the Special Judicial Service, and for good reason. They are the Judges who judge the Judges, known for the extreme methods they will go to in order to get the answers they need.
In Judge Dredd: The Game of Crime-Fighting in Mega-City One, they use their investigative skills to gain an advantage against their opponents. Their Internal Affairs ability allows them to look at all the Action cards in one other player’s hand at the start of the refill phase, helping you work out what your opponent might be planning.
As if that weren’t enough, the SJS also wins ties in combat. Don’t be surprised to see them following you around the board, watching your every move and jumping in to steal a Perp away from you!
