    Did you know gambling is illegal in China?

    Hahahahaha ... so is corruption ... oh, and prostitution ... and making oil and food produces using illegal chemicals ... also, throwing rubbish too?

    Carl ... other than the fact that my money is very "controlled", I would like nothing more than having a game ... heehee ... so, good luck with that ... but if I may make two suggestions:

    1. being that this is China, you might want to make this low profile and not too "open", e.g. outside an open forum, instead, just keep it inside your own circle, because you'd never know when you might attract an undercover agent or similar ... and if you (and your friends) think that you could avoid trouble because you are foreigners, I would think carefully about that ...
    2. also, the way you said it, to sceptics such as myself, it does not feel like an invitaion, but more like a scam or a setup ...

    That's all ... hope you wont get offended by what I said ... cheerio ...
