Title says it all, I think, except for a link:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AQM8H9I?tag=article-boar...

Normally $2.99. It's got 4.5/5 stars with 108 reviews over on the Play Store.

You need to install the Amazon App Store onto your Android phone or tablet; instructions are here:

Edit: FYI, the referral links on the Amazon URLs are for BGG, and are being added by BGG's forum, so don't yell at me. cool

It's not geography, it's licensing.

I installed it this morning too with no problems.
Not often the free app of the day is worth bothering with but every so often you get a gem like today. Sole reason I have the amazon app store!

How many fucking apps do I fucking have to install before I can install the fucking free app? I installed the fucking amazon app and then it says I MAY need to install another fucking amazon apop. May? Either I have the fucking amazon app or I don't? You're on my fucking phone, don't you fucking know? So now I have to install another fucking amazon app and then sign in THE SAME fucking amazon account before I can install the fucking free game. Now I can't fucking sign in because there's a fucking temporary error please fucking try again in a few moments. A temporary error? Either it fucking works or it fucking doesn't. What's the fucking point of saying temporary? This is driving me mental.

FInally got it to work. After rebooting the phone, I could finally log in to the app app, and then it presented the free app and then it took some time to actually download, but now I have it.

It's a great gateway game, and having it on my phone means I can show more people what I'm talking about when I say I play modern boardgames.

What's weird about this game, is that while we gave it to my 8 year old daughter for Christmas, it's also one of the most ruthless and bloodthirsty games I've played! Spamming someone with Mandatory quests in Lords of Waterdeep feels polite compared to just moving a penguin here!

Great to be able to pick it up for free! I rarely remember to check the amazon free app of the day, so I'll maybe have to do so more frequently.

Finally managed to snag this although it was far more effort that it should have been thanks to the Amazon App Store continually erroring out. Thanks for the heads up!

Very good tip, Chris. That needs to be at the top.

If you don't already have the Amazon app app, it's a pig to install. Very counter-intuitive, you have to change the phone settings, you have to get the Amazon app app first, NOT the Amazon app, reboot the phone after installing the app app, then log in to the app app and only then can you finally download the game.

Doh, I think it won't work for Aussies. I just tried and said I didn't have a compatible billable account.

As of right now, Amazon only lets developers set prices for the following:

1) US
2) UK
3) Germany
4) France
5) Spain
6) Italy
7) Canada
8) Japan
9) Brazil

They did recently send out a report that they're expanding their appstore to 200 countries. Not in time for "Hey, That's My Fish" though.

And I got a £1 credit for an MP3, usuable before 30th June. So they're actually paying me for the app!

That's not how you typically do it, no. It's very simple. You do have to make sure the security checkbox for installing 3rd party apps is off, yes, but that's the "hardest" part of the process. After that all you do is navigate to a web page on your phone (which Amazon will happily text to you or provide as a QR code) to download the .apk and install it. No rebooting, no multiple downloads and nothing you shouldn't already know how to do on your phone.

Downloaded it, played it, GREAT SUCCESS. Thanks!

For those of you wondering about how it plays, it is a very polished and attractive app, with a bunch of different "maps" (some cool and some quite silly) that are easily unlocked through achievements. There are nice animations (an orca eats you when you get trapped, heh). It plays great even on a small-ish Android phone. The AI isn't very challenging, though.

Here's a workaround to get the free apps when you're located outside the US. Worked for me.
