I was wondering what games (board or card) were played specifically during the Nazi period, especially ones the my have been particular to only that era.

Besides the common games played in the Nazi era like "Mensch ärgere Dich nicht" or "Halma" there where lots of propaganda games. Just two examples with pictures, more stuff from google picture search here: https://tinyurl.com/ycx6vpn2
