Unfortunately the game in question is Wir fahren gegen Engeland, a German propaganda game from 1940 which has sold recently for £350 at auction.

Interestingly, the sale include 'two swastika armbands and a swastika-shaped jelly mold.' It sounds like somebody signed up to one of the higher Kickstarter pledge levels for this one.

Of course that means they backed it in 1920 and it arrived in 1940.

I know I'm biased, but I think the British win this one.

Is nobody going to call out the swastika-shaped jello mold?

That jello mold is probably only standing for good luck. :whistle:





No wonder Parker Brothers was able to purchase the Flinch Card Company in 1936!

In Finland we even shape our yuletide pastries in shape of swastikas, waiting for the Seelöwe to happen.
