Dice, card games, "games of chance"

Postby cityhall » Thu Jun 11, 2009 4:30 pm

These items are prohibited according to the relocation guide and shipping instructions I have been given. We have several board games that include cards and dice (think family board games like Monopoly, Risk, etc.) Should we leave these at home or simply label them something non-controversial sounding on the shipping log?

Thanks

I would take them with in the shipment. At the worst they take them, chances are they will let them through.

I brought in all kinds of board games: Monopoly, scrabble, battleship, cranium, clue, and others. No problem.

There shouldn't be any problem bringing them in. Less likely to be taken if they go through customs with you in your checked luggage. I tried going to a online poker site, no problem.
