    I do not think bad of people - even Christians - who play with "poker cards" or "saloon cards" (as we called them growing up watching old westerns). I, too, have read what each of the cards is supposed to symbolize. In doing minimal research, one will find out there are mixed reports on that.

    Now, I was shocked once to see a preacher playing Solitaire on his computer. I laugh about it now, but frankly, it wasn't something I ever thought I'd see, but it doesn't really matter.

    I have played UNO, SKIPBO, and totally agree the use of spinners in place of dice is just a banana or two short of a bunch.

    That line of thinking doesn't hold up,... I wouldn't try romancing my wife in church but at home,... Well,... You get the idea.

    I don't think you've really given this a lot of thought.

    But, of course.

    How else would a lady think of a banana?
