Signs both for and against table games are up all over the Kanawha Valley, but Monday, a group of table games opponents didn't just put up signs, they put on costumes instead.

These table games opponents dressed up as prostitutes and dealers on MacCorkle Avenue this evening.

The group's organizers say they're afraid that if table games come here, big problems will be soon to follow.

"We're here to say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Nevada is the only state of all 50 to have legalized prostitution we feel that if table games come here the next thing we know prostitution will be here,” table games opponent Todd Gunter said.

In the heated battle over table games, Todd Gunter said that someone shot his sign down and left it on his car as a threat, but he says that kind of opposition just gives him energy to continue the fight.

The last day to vote on the games is August 11.
