Judge (role)


Participant that affects only the outcome of the game.


Role of the Judge is usually influential at the very end of the game or at the end of distinct stages of the game. Judge might affect the production of music only by the way of stopping it. Although usually they don’t produce sounds at all, in some arrangements Judge is a participant who gives a signal to end the game, which might be done by a cue or a final (or almost final) sounding note. Judge's actions are typically outside of the performance.

A unique feature of this role is a straightforwardly formed collective body of Judges, who decide the outcome by voting (or by an alternative method).
