As our European customers are aware, many countries there, Germany most of all, have enacted laws that ban the image of the swastika in the aftermath of World War II.
It has come to our attention that in the wake of the arrest of someone for owning a game (not sure it was one of ours) containing the image of a swastika on a game component in Germany, at least one of our retailers there is going through MMP games he has ordered and marking out SS symbols on counters and scenario cards and any swastikas (if any) found.
To the best of our knowledge, the SS symbol (like on SS counters in ASL) are not illegal, but we have an e-mail from at least one player whose counters were marked on to remove the SS symbol.
If you should recieve an MMP game with such modifications and have questions, please contact the retailer who sold the game. This is not MMP policy.
Please be aware that MMP strives to live in compliance with all international laws and ethical standards. While our boxes and magazine covers are double-checked to ensure compliance with the swastika ban, we are going to start taking a hard look at scenario card art and any future product printings to ensure the swastika is never shown. We will not remove the SS symbols from ASL counters at this time as they are not illegal to our knowledge.
