Description

The men in white coats do more than just act as mobile clothes stands for bowlers. These finger waggers make the life or death decisions that effect the outcome of every cricket match. They may not come in for as much abuise as football referees but the Umpires are just as important. Could you stand intheir shoes and make those decisions. Could you know what to do if a batsman’s bat breaks in half mid-shot. He trips on the piece of broken blade, knocking it back into the stumps. You are the Umpire – wonderful drawings from renowned artist Paul Trevillion – puts you in the spotlight and asks you question. But do you have the cricket knowledge to make the right call. Could you do a better job than the umpire? You Are The Umpire is the only cricket trivia game you’ll ever need. Incorporating a plethora of official artwork drawn by the legend that is Paul Trevillion and official guidance on the laws of the game from former International umpire John Holder, You Are The Umpire is the ultimate cricket trivia game.

History

The success of the evergreen You are the Ref series by Paul Trevillion and Keith Keith Hackett soon gave rise to a popular cricket spin-off: You Are The Umpire which launched in 2007 with top umpire John Holder providing the answers. It's now online and a new book of the series was published in May 2009.

      About Four Door Lemon Ltd

      Boilerplate
      Starting out as a work-for-hire and middleware developer in 2005 we have continued to expand our hugely experienced team to develop games of all genres and scales for every released (and some not released!) gaming platform. Recent projects include the PlayStation Vita’s AR titles Table Football, Table Ice Hockey and Table Mini Golf. We have since collaborated with other games developers on projects such as New Star Games’ New Star Soccer, Hello Games’ Joe Danger for PSVita / Android, and Mediatonic’s Foul Play for PS4 / PSVita. In late 2012 we began work on our original IP ‘101 Ways To Die’ as part of our gradual shift from work-for-hire to own IP development.
