Strange game. The only way to win is not to play

From the docket entry for Follett v. Elk River, argued today in the Idaho Supreme Court:

The city of Elk River maintains an unlocked storage shed in the breezeway behind City Hall. Aaliyah Follett, a five year old girl, and Chance Smith, an eight year old boy, lived nearby. On the morning of June 18, 2004 Aaliyah and Chance entered the shed with fourteen year old Charles Wetherell to play the "tape game." Inside the shed, Wetherell taped the children to chairs and sexually assaulted Aaliyah while Chance was forced to watch.

This is why you should always ask the rules before you play a game. I learned this the easy way from playing 52 Pick-Up.
