There’s another reason not to go to prison: they’ll confiscate your Dungeons & Dragons rulebooks! The courts have ruled that fantasy role playing games are a threat to security because…

Well, in a 2009 case, a prison gang leader “established and enforced rules.” You know, just like in D&D. And hell, there’s even a risk of “D&D players looking to Dungeon Masters, rather than to the prison’s own carefully constructed hierarchy of authority, for guidance and dispute resolution.”

Man, this is too easy. I can think of another fantasy game that is encouraged and rewarded in prisons, and has exactly the same properties they attribute to D&D. Quick, someone confiscate Chuck Colson’s bibles! Or better yet, someone take away his Templeton Prize.
