By that article it seems pretty true. What a horrible thought out law. To stop illegal gambling is why, but not many games involve gambling. Must of been on drugs to think this one up in my opinion.

I remember Genjuro talking about this awhile back. Perhaps he could tell us a bit more about the law? Then again, I haven't seen a post by him for some time; I hope he's not in the can for playing games.

I'm pretty sure they ended up not enforcing this law.

Normal human beings would just call that ridicullous.

But then again, it maybe be a little hard to realize that, since the world is filled with such stupid people and politics (specially the politics).

I cant agree more.Thank god Turkey has no laws like this,though we dont have big gaming endustry.

Why dont greeks try to stop people/firms who provide gambling games instead of all gamers, if they want to forbid gambling?

This is pretty old. I think they've since upgraded it to public places only instead of both private and public places.

The European Commission was actually taking the Greek government to court over it, but I haven't heard anything since they announced it last year. It's probably on the backburner right now.

Here's the EC press release, if you want details
