Berlin, Feb 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A German company could find itself in trouble if prosecutors are able to determine that it has violated the country’s Constitution with its new card game.

The German Constitution has outlawed the public display of the swastika. That is exactly what the German police are currently investigating. They want to determine whether game cards that contain half the sign violate that part of the Constitution.

Card game company, Weltquartett came up with a new card game called Tyrannen. Tyrannen which translates to ‘tyrants’ in English is a card game about some of the worse dictators and tyrants in the 20th century.

The cards contain the pictures of Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Idi Amin, Franco, Mussolini and others. Along with the pictures of those tyrants, information like the number of people that they killed and other infamous details about them are displayed. Players are required to match the dictators to their regions. The winner at the end of the game is the player with no tyrant at all.

Reports say police in Nuremberg have seized some of the cards from the market as part of the investigation. The cards have been on sale since 2008.
