When board games are outlawed, only outlaws will play boardgames

In South Carolina, it is illegal to pass Go or collect $200 – even if it is just Monopoly money. The same state law that has forced a local radio station to cancel its charity poker tournament scheduled for next week also makes it illegal for anyone in South Carolina to play a game – any game – that uses cards or dice.

Given the size of my game collection I would be busted as a dealer if I ever set foot in the state. My Settlers of Catan collection alone would probably get me a life sentence. And if they ever came across my Heroscape stash? Lethal injection.
