I asked this in another thread, but could I give the missionaries Phase Ten/Uno, or does this count as cards/gambling?

The missionaries played cards with me all the time. I don't think there is a problem with it.

Some mission presidents allow these things. Others don't.

That's true, but there is only so much a missionary can do without. And playing cards is usually one vice they all have. At least the missionaries around here anyway.

I hear you can even make them a $10,000 bet these days. ;)

1. Almost anything can be construed as being contraband under the missionary rules.

2. Most missionaries are fairly lax about the rules, especially when it comes to personal possessions. Most missionaries in my mission had trunks full of stuff they technically weren't supposed to have - "unapproved" music, comic books, guitars, harmonicas, posters, "unapproved" clothing, pin-up calendars, art supplies, pocket knives, toys, pets . . .

For the record during my mission period we had a late night game of Phase 10. It cursed the whole mission with low baptisms.

Er...no that was because we were in Germany.

I regularly played poker in the past with some RMs. Not all seem to have the issue with face cards.

I bought a poker set while serving my sentence. I taught quite a few guys how to play. When it was time to go home, i left the set with someone to continue passing the joy.
