There are some laws on the books in South Carolina that forbid games like roly poley and draughts. The laws can be used to declare a residence where roly poley is being played as an illegal casino or as a public gaming house. This is ABSURD.

So the cops can bust in with SWAT gear and shut down games like Roly Poley where betting is happening. In my humble opinion, we should have a Federal Mandate to force states to update antiquated laws like this within a 5 year period. This law in particular is poised to be abused by over zealous prosecutors and police alike.
