Draw one card

>> Thursday, February 26, 2009

[South Carolina] State Attorney General Henry McMaster says his office has adopted a looser interpretation [of an 1802 South Carolina gambling law] that only considers games more reliant on chance than on a player's skill—including Texas Hold 'em, a popular type of poker—to be gambling and therefore illegal.

...uhm, guys....
Snakes and ladders, or Chutes and ladders, is a classic children's board game.... Its simplicity and the see-sawing nature of the contest make it popular with younger children, but the lack of any skill component in the game makes it less appealing for older players.

...y'know... about that definition of gambling...
There is no optimal strategy, or indeed any decision making, involved in Candy Land. The moves are wholly determined by the cards, which are drawn in order. The only random chance element comes from each shuffling of the deck. Every time the deck is shuffled, one of n + 1 outcomes is pre-determined, where n is the number of players: one of the players wins, or the deck will need to be shuffled again after it is used.

...yeah, uhm, I'd like to report several South Carolina preschools engaged in a continuing criminal enterprise... which ones...? Uhh... all of them?

What has the nation come to when teh childrens are gambling and breaking the law at such an early age.

Although if there's no money involved is it still gambling? Or are they betting on bragging rights?

I will be using "smelly doodie head" at least once in conversation today.
