It is a rare day when an SH3'er can beat Celeon to the press with a news story. Just saw this item, some childrens' games from WW2 Germany are going on auction in Britain. One is a pinball style game where players have to "bomb" English cities to get points.


In a pinball-style game called Bombers Over England, German children scored 100 points by destroying London or the British submarine base at Scapa Flow, Scotland. Players also could win 100 points for hitting Calais, France (which was still French-controlled), and lower scores for British cities such as Aberdeen (60), Birmingham (50) and Liverpool (40). They lost points by hitting Nazi-controlled cities in Europe, such as Brussels and Amsterdam.



For whatever reason, Liverpool isn't worth much. We U-boat men, however, know what a rich target that would be for us!
