5 stages of Amazon Appstore

  1. Denial
    No way? Free apps? Every day? They can’t be any good, though?
  2. Acceptance
    Carcassonne? Great! That’s an app I’d like for free. I’m in.
  3. Bargaining
    Ah, so I have to install the Amazon Appstore to get it. Okay…
  4. Anger
    I can’t play the Carcassonne app without being signed into the Amazon Appstore? Why?! I’m on a bus – I don’t have my login details! Wtf?!
  5. Depression
    Uninstall Carcassonne. Uninstall Amazon Appstore. Consider paying for Carcassonne on Google Play even though the reviews aren’t great.


I jest, of course. Nothing is free, and if I’d like to play Carcassonne – which wasn’t bad as a phone adaptation of a board game goes – for free, the cost is dealing with Amazon’s App Store and making sure I log in. If I don’t like that, then I can delete both (which I did) and pay for it elsewhere – which I haven’t yet; there is nothing more annoying than trying to move the board and accidentally playing a piece because you touched a valid play spot. Until that is fixed I consider the current price too high.
