AbstractAn educational, legal based game and method for players, has a board with spaces on which the players land. The spaces instruct players to bring a simulated lawsuit or to act as a result of a simulated circumstance associated with the legal profession. A fund of play money is provided and a random generator determines the number spaces the players will move. Lawsuit cards are part of the game, each having a fact pattern and a positive or negative monetary result. At a player's option, an appeal card can be selected but then the player must comply with the monetary result which may be higher or lower on the appeal card. A player landing on one of the other type of spaces acts in accordance with the simulated circumstance of that space.
