  • Ellen G White speaks of them in her books saying that heaven forbids them.

    We must take into consideration the times in which she lived. Back then these games were often played in gaming parlors where drunkenness and immorality kept house. It's equivalent may be the slot machines found in casinos today. She was more opposed to the gambling aspects of these games.

  • Some Adventists do play these games. Some of us don't take the things Si. White says as seriously as others. I personally love checkers!
