Chuck E. Cheese encourages gambling
Debate Rounds (4)
They want to keep spending more and more tokens on 'that one game that gives a lot of tickets' so that they can get more tickets to get better toys.
Not to mention the toys are extremely cheap and break easily, which would make them want a new one to replace it. They waste their parents money on overly priced cheap toys until they get a better toy. The toys that aren't as cheap cost thousands of tickets, making the children play the games over and over again until they get more tickets.
There are also games that are based on luck and you may not get any tickets at all from them. There are games that resemble gambling games at casinos.
Children continue to play the games because they don't realize they're gambling away their parents money on games that will get the four tickets if they're lucky, and they do it to get a toy that lasts about a week.
Especially when the prize is candy, that rots their teeth and is full of unhealthy preservatives.
But I don't think Chuck E. Cheese's supports gambling. It's simply fun and games and your'e over-thinking it if you consider it "gambling". And, if the parents think it DOES support gambling, simply don't bring your kids to Chuck E. Cheese's.
Point #1: "But I don't think Chuck E. Cheese's supports gambling."
I never once said that Chuck E. Cheese supports gambling, I said "Chuck E. Cheese encourages gambling."
Per Merriam-Webster and Dictionary.com:
Definition of "Encourage": to promote, advance, or foster.
Definition of "Support": to promote the interests or cause of.
As you can see there is a difference between the two.
Point #2: "It's simply fun and games and your'e over-thinking it if you consider it 'gambling'."
A lot of people who enjoy gambling activities would refer to them as "fun" and/or "games." As an example, just look at Thunder Valley Casino's website, where there are many references to "games" and quotes such as "watch as the fun factor goes through the roof." http://www.thundervalleyresort.com...
Point #3: "And, if the parents think it DOES support gambling, simply don't bring your kids to Chuck E. Cheese's."
My opponent failed to stay on topic. The topic was "Chuck E. Cheese encourages gambling." Not "parents shouldn't bring their children to Chuck E. Cheese."
It doesn't matter that parents bring their children there, it's the fact that they have games that are similar to slot machines and other casino games that really matters to the topic of this debate.
I am terribly sorry, I must forfit this debate as I am getting way too busy. Again, I am very sorry!
