I'm sure glad I'm done with my travels to Greece. How embarrassing it would be to get slapped with a hefty fine for playing solitaire on a PC in an internet café.

The Greek government has banned all electronic games across the country, including those that run on home computers, on Game Boy-style portable consoles, and on mobile phones. Thousands of tourists in Greece are unknowingly facing heavy fines or long terms in prison for owning mobile phones or portable video games. [link courtesy of Peter who has jury duty]
