Play Money

Looking for alternatives to the hideous plastic money that comes with Martin Wallace’s board game London.

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.

Amazon US & UK

Shame there isn’t some connection between Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk so that when they shunt me off to the UK Kindle site from their button…

…I’d end up on the page for the book I was looking at on the U.S site. If the two companies got together and partnered up they could be invincible

Any reason why a Kindle edition is more expensive?

I don’t mind paying the same price for digital editions of books, after all the author needs to eat and the publishers need to publish, but paying more? What gives? I’d understand if there was a need to reformat the digital edition, but “Rule 34” by Charlie Stross (for example) isn’t even formatted properly for a Kindle. So an extra £1 for Drew Macgary’s “The End Specialist“? Ouch.

“The End Specialist” (“The Postmortal” in the U.S) does sound interesting, though. Will wait for price to drop.
