Is Playing Bridge A Criminal Activity?

You probably think I’ve gone daft in the head for even asking.  What can be more innocent than sitting round the table in your local bridge club playing a few friendly hands of bridge?

This isn’t the view that police in Thailand took a few days ago.  In Thailand there is a law that states that you cannot possess more than 120 playing cards at a time.  Clearly a bridge club is going to possess more than that, so in the eyes of the police the club was breaking the law.

As I’m typing, I’m wondering if playing using tablet computers would count as possessing cards?  Let’s hope the club owner gets his licence to possess cards and the club members can go back to playing their regular club nights.
