Had this demoed to me at Essen and we played pretty much a complete game. First the good - it is a terrific use of the licence, it really feels like it works in the Firefly universe.

Unfortunately the description from this edition doesn't seem to have changed from when the Kindle edition was being offered to US Kindles. It says that pictures and charts are not included, yet the price is 50% higher than the "e-paper" edition.

I'm hoping that this is because Amazon have simply copied the details of their US offering onto the UK website and that The Telegraph have yet to update how they will deal with delivering their UK newspaper to UK readers using UK Kindles.

They will need to reduce the price to the… Read more
