A new law passed in Greece bans the use of ANY device that allows electronic gaming. This includes Game Boy consoles (or any variation), cell phones, computers and the list goes on & on.
Many people including tourists have been fined heavily or even been sent to jail for violating this law. The most common violation is having a cell phone (those new Samsung phones have a fighter pilot game).
The part that’s troublesome about this law is that the government enacted it based on the fact that its law enforcement personnel were unable to distinguish between video games and electronic gambling machines.
Unbelievable. If you’ve never been politically active, you might take this as an extreme example of what happens when you don’t pay attention to your governmental politics.
