The Dangers Of Online Chess In A Greek Internet Cafe

from the beats-me dept

If you happen to be relaxing in a Greek internet cafe and decide to play a little bit of chess to pass the time, you might be breaking the law. In order to outlaw internet gambling, it seems the Greeks have done their best to ban any kind of online games in public places. In fact, the law practically bans computers from any public place other than internet cafes – where no games will be allowed. They decided to do this after the government admitted they simply couldn’t tell the difference between a legitimate game and internet gambling. Seems a bit extreme.
