Morning all

I'm very tempted by the Amazon Fire Tablet that's currently on sale for £29.99, but before I commit, would it be any good for boardgame apps?

I'm thinking Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride specifically.

Cheers!

    Those may be your total choice. Amazon Fire does not link to the Android App store so there are not a lot of choices to be had. I have a Fire HD (old) and a Fire HD 10 (newer) and both recently went through an upgrade that has them a little touchy. I've given up on using them for board game sims because there just isn't much out there to choose from.

    Side-loads generally don't work.

    Killer platforms for reading, not so much for gaming.

I have Carcassonne, Galaxy Trucker, Pandemic, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Splendor, Glass Road, and Suburbia. Not a huge selection available, but there are some good games.
